Cloudy Weather Report

Google News went down middle of the day Tuesday for a couple of hours

Google News went down middle of the day Tuesday for a couple of hours.

Google never explained why but said many were affected. Three weeks ago, Gmail went down big time because of a poorly executed server upgrade and now on Thursday users were complaining on Twitter that they couldn’t access their contacts.

Google didn’t say anything about contacts. It said a small subset of users couldn’t access Google Mail period and it would take a workaround to fix.

About two-and-a-half hours later it said the problem should be resolved. No explanation.
