I was one of those affected. I hate to admit this but i typed 'Google Outage' into my chrome browser's address space by accident.

In an e-mail to CNN, Google said it received reports of problems with Google services from users in West Virginia, North Carolina, Nebraska and Georgia.

google searches for "meth recipes" were down 10,000% over the time of the outage

Add a sliver in for me as "I get free stuff with Bing Rewards."

Granted, it's not much, typically $5 Amazon credits a month, but the searches are decent enough.

Two more datapoints suggesting the end of real journalism:

1) Google being down is presented on the news.
and worse 2) Facebook changing their design is a major headline.

fark you, CNN.

that's wrong.

In my line of work (forms of I.T.),  Internet Explorer is known as the best Firefox (sometime now it's Chrome) downloader ever coded.

I always make sure that I search for "Download Firefox" when I have to set up a new Winders PC.  (Luckily I'm a Linux tech now so I don't have to bother very often).

There should be a 5% slice on there for "nudity without having to actually type 'nudity'".

Reminds me of a programmer who spread a device pinging program across a corporate network that had every computer querying every server and printer in the network every second to see if the things were responding.

I'm using Bing more and more as Google becomes more full of itself and search results become less useful due to its desire to "protect" searches from unwanted results
 
2013-07-10 02:55:00 PM  
Among the services affected were Gmail, Google Plus, Google Drive and YouTube.

Not Google Plus. NOT GOOGLE PLUS!!!

I'm guessing the self-altering AI they've been fermenting in the server farm went rogue and tried to launch nuclear missiles. You know, to combat the spam it's filters have been swamped with.

And trying to fix your search by including "related" searches high in the rankings.

//just use duck duck go, though.  If you're using the same website as people who don't understand technology, how do you know you're better than them?

Bing is the Pepsi of search engines - always struggling to compare itself to the #1 seed.  You know how I know you'll never be #1 (aside from your product sucking)?  Winners don't compare themselves to everyone else.

Eg:
Number of Bing/Pepsi ads that compare themselves to Google/Coke: All of them
Number of Google/Coke ads that compare themselves to Bing/Pepsi: None

Everyone knows it, including your ad agency.  Let it go.

The last time I remember Google going down was when Michael Jackson died. Google shut down because it thought it was getting DDOSed.

I couldn't get Google this morning.  It turned out during the two minutes I was trying to get Google or any other Google service like Chrome or YouTube to work, I got infected 76 times with some weird backdoor Trojan.
Disinfected and quarantined.
Might have to consider Duck Duck Go.

Aren't you lucky?  You get to use the search engine that goes "Bing!"
