Gmail is down
Panic not, readers! It’s not you, it’s Gmail. It’s broken, and apparently, it’s due to ‘a fault’, which is reassuring. So far on Twitter we’ve seen mass hysteria, as people realise they have no way of doing anything at all today, as they’ve accidentally stored their entire life on Google.
Should we perhaps take this as a sign of why cloud computing, and specifically having a Google-based life, can be a scary, scary prospect? Nah.

Gmail Fail Cartoon
Oh no thats means my life is broken too :-(
This gmail panic is amazing! Astounding to see how many people are relying on Google for their email… me included :)
POP3 and IMAP4 access works well, iPhone users are also happy :)
Well, uh, the cloud seemingly has become quite foggy , sire.
Anyway hope Sergey & Larry´s people get the sutff up again quick – and to the rest, why don´t keep an offline copy of your digital life ?
offline gmail anyone? – it is annoying that its gone though…
Oh dear. I’m going to have to get some work done.
This is new.
hahaha definately stupid to rely on one specific platform to store EVERYTHING on.. incidently, I cant get to my workmail :<
