Is Google Down? August 9, 2008

Posted by simarprit in : Blogging, Internet, News, News Reaction, portals, Search Engines , trackback

I noticed at 4:40 Pacific that Google.com is not working. GMAIL was also not working but Google.co.in was working and so was Google.ie

It took me about 10 minutes to conclude that Google.com was indeed down, atleast for me.

If Google can go down like this - Oh my God!

There must be a vulnerability, there is so much of technology available. Am I the only person who is not able to use Google.com?

Google.com for me went down after 4:30 Pacific and came back before 5:20 Pacific. I am right now in India and accessing from there.

Maybe Google.com was not down and it was a DNS glitch?

Please inform, if you faced n problems?

I noticed it too, ive posted about it earlier also on my blog ‘lunch is for wimps’ I wonder what it was, I know all adsense and basically anything google seemed to have an outage. This was pretty big time eh.
