Starting on the morning of May 14, at about 10:45 AM Eastern Time, Google and its related services starting to move extremely slowly. In some cases, Google services are reported to have completely stopped working.
In the States, I’ve heard from users in NYC, Chicago, and San Francisco. They all report that Google searches were running at historically low speeds. I’ve heard similar reports from users Europe and Australia.
In addition, Google services like Google News and Gmail are completely failing. The Internet Storm Center is saying that it’s received multiple “reports of a total fail of Google Applications. Gmail, Reader, Docs, News, Apps. etc.”
