The Register is reporting that there was a short (a few minutes) outage of most Google services starting at 4:37pm Pacific Time (US) today. All services restored within several minutes.

The amazing part is that GoSquared saw a 40% drop in worldwide Internet traffic in that time frame!

Truly mind boggling how much Google is taken for granted.

I noticed it. I was wondering what was wrong.
