Google's Gmail service went down for a "small subset" of users for a couple of hours this morning, Pacific Daylight Time, according to CNET News. The outage began sometime around 0730 PDT and was cleared up by around 1000 PST.
Google apologized "for the inconvenience" and thanked everyone "for your patience and continued support."
That patience and support is starting to wane for some.
I'm not sure I go that far, but Google's reliability or lack thereof is starting to create a credibility gap regarding whether it's products are sufficiently reliable for corporations to use on an exclusive basis.
