Seems Best Buy was ill prepared for today’s post-Turkey shopping madness — at least online.
BestBuy.com has been down for nearly an hour now (since roughly 6:15 AM Pacific), on a sales day that the company likely hoped would be one of their best.
It’s unclear whether the outage is due to a technical screwup or traffic overwhelming their servers. For what it’s worth, the “Oh god, our website is broke” page itself loads pretty quick — but that page is probably a whole lot easier to serve up than a zillion simultaneous searches and shopping cart additions.
Perhaps they should call the Geek Squad?
