Gmail is down…*was down….

Gmail-logoLike many people, we rely on the mighty Google to be unbreakable, but it's not the case. To my surprise I saw the SOS signals pouring out of Twitter. That also raises the question, "Is Twitter the best social network for up to speed updates?", I think it just might be. I didn't hear anything on Facebook or Myspace, nothing nowhere except on Twitter.

Then Google posted a note:

We’re aware of a problem with Gmail affecting a number of users.
This problem occurred at approximately 1:30AM Pacific Time. We’re
working hard to resolve this problem and will post updates as we have
them. We apologize for any inconvenience that this has caused.

But no official word from Google yet as to what happened.
