Don't you mean Niantic / Nintendo? Or was it something to do with the location services / maps?
No.... I won't give them time... I am a completely unreasonable user... and insist that all the hamsters get back in their wheels and start running again!
Just though it odd as it didn't seem to be time related... I tried a few times a few hours apart so it didn't appear to be load related... so was wondering if somebody broke the server!
