Yes, Nest is down again. You'd think that a security camera system that tens of millions of people use would be better at keeping its service up and running, but this is the second time Nest has gone down in less than two weeks.

[Update: Back up] Allo is down, but you probably didn't notice because you're part of the 99.99999%
