How reliable are (free) Internet services?

OMG!There was a meltdown at bookmark sharing website Ma.gnolia Friday morning. The service lost both its primary store of user data, as well as its backup. The site has been taken offline while the team tries to reconstruct its databases, though some users may never see their stored bookmarks again. (Full)

If you did a Google search yesterday, there is a good chance you saw the message "This site may harm your computer" for each and every search result. People called it an epic fail. Apparently it was a human error. And there was a human error trying to explain what the problem was too... (Full)

Pageflakes, my favourite tool to read RSS news feeds (see this post) went down two days ago.. Not a peep from their support services... Apparently other sites from their parent company LiveUniverse went down, including LiveVideo, MeeVee, and Revver.
Oh well, I am setting up my own RSS tool. On Google Apps.

Ooh, but is Google Apps not a free Internet tool too? Eh? And The Road to the Horizon is running on Blogger, another free Internet tool, no? Help. Time to panic. OMG! OMG! Breath! Breath!
