The sky is falling! Google Gmail servers were down for a few hours. After reading some of the blog reports concerning what happened, Google having issues was a great catastrophe. Over at the Google blog they reported the following:

If you’ve tried to access your Gmail account today, you are probably aware by now that we’re having some problems. Shortly after 10 9:30am GMT our monitoring systems alerted us that Gmail consumer and businesses accounts worldwide could not get access to their email.

We’re working very hard to solve the problem and we’re really sorry for the inconvenience. Those users in the US and UK who have enabled Gmail offline through Gmail Labs should be able to access their inbox, although they won’t be able to send or receive emails.

It seems to me that people want to believe that Google is infallible. Though Google may be the king of search. their equipment is man made and their technicians are human.

Comments welcome.
