Google Slow? Fail? Outage? Down? Status? I'm on AT&T but I didn't notice anything...

Just a quick check of the hot Google Trends search terms today shows you people had a real problem with Google being down or slow for them during a certain outage period:

google outage,google outage today, google down, google, google status, google downtime ,google down,google, google outage, google status, google downtime, google issues,google slow,google slow today, google issues, google problems, google is slow, slow,google problems,google issues, google down, google slow, google, google outage

The weird thing is, I was online by 9 a.m. ET in the USA this morning -- Thursday, May 14, 2009 -- the day of the "Google Fail" as was a trending topic on Twitter, but I didn't have any problems. Thankfully.

Google admits some of their users may have experienced issues, but says the probably was corrected, without saying what caused the problem in the first place.

Some say AT&T users were affected -- but not me. And others couldn't get into Google News. I did.

I wonder what happened? Seeing news of Google fail was like those urban legend reports of the Internet collapsing one day...


It happened to me yesterday too!!
