    Update 2: As of 2:52 service seems to be restored and reliable on both Gmail and Google+ for most of those affected.

    This reflects the loss of quality all across the board on google products. Search and most of their products have gone downhill and their policies towards webmasters are more and more abusive, things will only get worse.

    We're seeing a shifting landscape in search folks. Pretty soon we'll see some real competition again.

    Funny, recently went to a presentation at Google in NYC about how they backup and restore using tapes.

    They use tape, since it can be easily repaired, unlike CDs or Harddrives.

    Hmm Youtube comments were not working for me yesterday too. Even Google plus was having issues loading ajax'd content. They are surely having some problems. I read that some internal configuration got fucked up which caused it.
