Google Hit With Gmail, Docs Outage
Google had what it said was an outage to its Gmail cloud email service that impacted "less than 0.007" of its user base of 425 million. Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Spreadsheets and Google Presentations also were affected by the outage, Google said in its subsequent mea culpa. Is this outage a big deal? Probably not. Is it going to perpetuate the fears some users have about relying on cloud services? That's probably a yes.
