It seems that large swaths of T-Mobile
Germany's network have been down for much of the day today, which -- in our books, anyway -- is as good a reason as any to flip cars and light things on fire (thankfully, though, it seems they've restrained themselves so far). Only voice and SMS are affected, which is pretty cool since there are other ways to text and talk using data alone; that said, it's still a major bummer, and T-Mobile's currently investigating the cause of the outage. Remain calm, everyone -- remember, ganging up on that cell tower and knocking it over only makes things worse, not better.
