Google News Goes Down Yesterday

So it wasn't my imagination. InformationWeek confirmed that Google News was out yesterday afternoon for about two hours.

Google said in an email to InformationWeek that ...

"Today, from about 12:25 p.m. to 2:20 p.m. PDT, many users experienced difficulties accessing Google News. We know how important Google News is to our users, and we take issues like this very seriously. This issue has now been resolved. We apologize for the inconvenience."

Google has had a series (see here, here and here, for instance) of system glitches over the past year.
