You can all relax now. The near-unprecedented outage that seemingly affected all of Google's services for a brief time on Friday is over.
The event began at approximately 4:37pm Pacific Time and lasted between one and five minutes, according to the Google Apps Dashboard. All of the Google Apps services reported being back online by 4:48pm.
I noticed the down time yesterday. Interested to see if we get any information about the cause. Swamp gas maybe?
