It's certainly possible to look for google.com or one of their services (from one location or another) and find a temporary outage, although that is pretty rare. When it does happen, it has been extremely short term. One time about two years ago there was a short-term DNS issue but that was resolved quickly.
No problems here in Boston, MA
I get blank pages no matter where I go. View source shows blank pages as well.
Hmm, I'm thinking Comcast is the problem or there's a DNS issue somewhere. Ebay is down too.
