Yesterday AOL went down without much a whisper, although credit to Techcrunch for running the story and not playing it soft. (although I wonder how much more biting it would have been if they did get bought, but that’s another question).

Well today gmail web client went down for about 15min for some of us.  Could have been everyone but if that was the case twitter would have blown up.  I think it was a local ‘series of tubes’ issues because this site was down also.  However, I want not all that worried because I keep of copy of all my gmail in outlook locally.  And despite the GFail, I was still able to go back and search emails and pretty much go along as normal.

BTW, setting up Gmail to Outlook is pretty easy.  Here is tutorial I used..

Connect Gmail to Outlook.
