As of now, Gmail is down!

Normally we don't report this but Gmail appears to be having a major system failure and downtime *AGAIN*. Both free Gmail and paid Google Apps email service are inaccessible. Customers are furious.

Ahem... I am glad that Blogger is still up... :)

Update: As of Feb 24, 2009 3AM PST, it's still down. Downtime is approx. 45 min.

Update 2: At 3:40AM: Service outage is worldwide, downtime reports from UK, Sweden, Hong Kong and of course, San Diego.

Update 3: At 4:20AM: Service seems largely recovered.

Google posted an apology and explanation on their official company blog.  Oh... a user reminded me that this service is still beta.


  1. Geez... this has been a long while and it is still unreliable. What happen to Google?!

  2. Thanks for reporting, Google Human Monitor (Beta)
