They hacked YouTube Channel has been up for several hours now, suggesting either Microsoft but more likely Google, famous for their legendary poor customer service, have been slow to respond.

    Being a Google product/service, this is not surprising at all; all their services are hacked everyday. I wonder why people don’t think and still use Google’s services for anything.
