Wow, what a technical disaster for Google! How could that happen? The downtime of Google can seriously affect the entire globe and the users have no choice but to switch to secondary competitor, Bing. Of course, not all search results are accurate enough on Bing but it seems that they’re working on something else instead of Bing service. So we, users, are quite curious on what caused the downtime.
- Did the hackers intruded on the company network?
- Did some disaster strike?
- Did someone trip on the networking or electric environment?
Well, according to Zdnet, there was some promise that Google Apps will be free from the downtime but is it true enough?
