If you were online over the weekend, you might have been aware that Google ran into some fairly serious issues, incorrectly identifying ever site on the internet as harmful to your computer. No search results originating from a Google search were accessible, with the same going for Google’s own sites, such as their blog, or Google Maps.
The problem was resolved, but not before they tried to blame some innocent not-for-profit malware identifying company. After they’d finished passing the buck, they concluded it was their own human error, and all because of an errant .
Now, on Saturday, Google breaks the internet. Come Monday, mass snowfall has lead to a complete halt in life as we know it. Coincidence? Well, perhaps, but it delivers a nice apocalyptic feel to what is otherwise a fairly prosaic story.
