Everyone has technical difficulties every once in a while. It goes with the territory.

But then, not everyone is Google. According to web analytics firm GoSquared, worldwide internet traffic dipped by a stunning 40 per cent during the brief minutes that the Chocolate Factory's services were offline. Here's the graph of what that looked like:
Very strange indeed. How can such a large distributed server environment ALL go down at the same time.. Can't wait for updates from google. Anyone else a server admin with some insight as to how this could happen? Im stumped.

So at least 40% of people in the world do not know how to type www.bing.com in to there browser search bar. Though it was only 2 mins a lot of people probably didn't even get started thinking about alternatives and just opting to "try again later".

Well Google is more than Google.com. Can't check Gmail from Outlook.com among many things

No 40% are smart enough not to use bing

so glad I saw this article! I was trying to google something RIGHT at this moment, was getting nothing. I kicked my son off his PC and tried, still nothing. Went to the back bedroom and told my wife to google something and sure enough it worked I was like, hmm and just dismissed it. I also thought my internet or ISP was acting up so I went to OCN and yahoo and they worked. Weird, be interesting to see what happened.

There certainly is something fishy in this if all of their services went down for the whole world at the same time.

Not really. Google already published info about Spanner. This basically means all the Google's runs one system... it just happens to be across every data center they own. Note, absolutely no other company has achieved this.

OFF-TOPIC: True AI will probably come from Google, like Jane from the ansible network.

ON-TOPIC: It wouldn't surprise me if they did this on purpose, to see how much the World relies on their services
