Google services, including Google search and Gmail, were down today for many in the United States, most especially people in the southeastern U.S..
Google would neither confirm nor deny the outage, however reports of the outage came from many corners, and were widely reported in both news media and on social media.
Of course, the Twittersphere was lit up with such snarky comments as “How can I Google is Google is down if Google is down”, and “Looks like the Mayans were right, just six months late.”
Of course some people affected used other search engines, such as Bing and Yahoo, although we’re not sure whether “we are up when the other guy goes down” is really enough to boost their competitive edge.
