Gmail, one of the prides of giant Google company, went down Tuesday for about an hour and half on Sep, 01st, from 13:00 to 14:25, pacific time.
This is the second outage Gmail has suffered so far. The previous wide and long outage was on May, 14th this year.
Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but did acknowledge and apologize for the outage on its Gmail blog.
I’m not depressed because I don’t use Gmail too much, instead, I’m very thankful that this issue inspires me to realize how people depend on social medias nowadays
People get used to twitter their every movement to let others know what you are doing, even if you can only type 140 characters. What if no Twitter?
People get used to call and text each other every day, even if there is nothing serious to tell. What if no mobile phones?
People get used to send messages by MSN or emails, even if your colleagues are just sitting beside you. What if no messengers and emails?
People get used to arm themselves with endless electronics, hide themselves behind computer screens, indulge themselves in bantch of illusory programs……what if the technosphere bubble bursts someday?
Gmail down “4U”, thank you, finally we have some time to breathe fresh air, enjoy a cup of coffee, communicate with people face to face, hear the sound of a human voice, go out for a walk and the most important, to know who we really are!
Seize the time because Gmail won’t always down for you!
