I wonder how much cheering and back-slapping goes on at SS and DT and the like when this keeps happening to IS...  ;D

Interesting...while IS was down, Thinkstock's entire front page was redesigned.

Also interesting...Anonymous was in the middle of implementing a huge attack against high-profile SOPA/PIPA supporters at the same time IS went down.  Although Getty/IS weren't mentioned in their release, gotta wonder if a rogue hacker got a hold of IS tonight.

Interesting that one of ThinkStock's selling points is "simplicity". Wonder who they're trying to differentiate themselves from?

If I had to guess, this is insider thinking from some Getty folks - it's simpler than RM license pricing or their main site with both RM and RF plus a pile of collections. This ignores the fact that there are a bunch of other micro sites out there that are equally simple. If you were comparing SS and TS, I don't think you'd find TS "simpler".

They really need to get an appropriate professional business-like "out of order" page. Current page(s) are a joke!

No, I was wondering if they were trying to lure iStock customers who were baffled by the myriad options there.
