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.
