7. Dropbox

Cloud storage company Dropbox on Oct. 26 experienced an outage for several hours.

The company displayed a message on its website that said, "Error: Something went wrong. Don't worry, your files are still safe and the Dropboxers have been notified."

The Dropbox outage occurred the same day as outage from Google App Engine and a second, smaller service interruption at Tumblr.

The interruptions led many to link the issues to an undetermined slowdown of Internet availability, although an exact cause has never been determined.
