The Great #googlefail of May 2009

Google services have gone down (or were down earlier today) in various cities. There aren’t too many concrete details out there. ZD Net is reporting that the outages in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Australia, France, China among others. There’s also a possible glitch regarding Google and AT&T.

According to CNet, the services down include: YouTube, Gmail, Google Analytics, Google Maps, Google Docs, AdSense, and Blogger.

But you don’t need an online tech source to know what’s happening. Just log on to Twitter (or visit search.twitter.com) and you’ll see that #googlefail is a hot topic today. Looks like the “Poor man’s email” is a little more reliable than Gmail today.
