One of the worst things that can happen to connected types is the loss of a service or an Internet connection. I nearly went crazy with a day without my internet connection during a recent move. Google's Gmail email application crashed yesterday leaving users around the globe unable to send or receive emails.
I never noticed the outage here in America and I use Gmail heavily. Google want specify what cause the service to crash. The reason that I didn’t notice the crash (and many others likely didn’t as well) is because I use Outlook to grab mail from my Gmail accounts.
The outage only affected web-based users. Users checking email on mobile devices like the iPhone were unaffected as well. ComScore says that over 113 million users were affected by the crash though including a number of corporate users. Apparently, the service is still down for many users and there is no indication of when it will be back up at this time.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
