YouTube has been knocked out (update: back up!)

If you've gone to YouTube on your mobile device in the last 20 minutes or so, you probably got an error message, but if you tried on a desktop, you were faced with the oddest thing you may ever see: a Google service failing so hard that the error page is just a long string of characters. No word on what happened, or when it will be fixed, but we'll keep you updated as it goes on...

bet its to do with some of the recent changes that took effect today on the 18th. Bet someone wasn't happy about it. Changes were about content id/copyright and some other stuff, primarily affected partners or others trying to monetize.
