No, really. Chill. Go outside, enjoy the Polar Vortex and walk around for a few minutes while the folks in Mountain View get it straightened out.

Update: OK, things are slowly returning to normal. Just like we all knew they would. Have a nice weekend, folks.

I was trying to apply for a time-sensitive job posting. Had to upload to Drive and email links. I should definitely get bonus points for creativity.

I just got my work schedule emailed to me, so Gmail is working, at least as of 1:36pm eastern time.

The most annoying thing is my Outlook keeps giving me a pop-up that it can't communicate with Gmail. . . .OK OK OK I know thanks for the update. I need to figure out how to turn off the auto-refresh!! Ahhhh...Gmail is down. Sky is falling!!

Uh, if I wasn't online I would have known, I received my work schedule email just fine at 1:36pm.

There are numerous other ways to communicate.

I nearly died...I'll be honest.

I was in middle sending my boss a presentation. I'm trying to get the heck out of the office on time! Sent through outlook. I'm clocking out.

There are numerous other ways to communicate, numerous other ways. Because of how much society hates communicating like actual humans, and use there voice, there is instant messaging, and whatever else. Guess what, in the year 2014, my voice still works and I still no how to talk. So I don't care about email, IM'ing, or stupid texting.

I'm not just talking about regular communication but work related. I'd name some examples but if you read the comments you'd know what I mean.

Rarely happens

Not monthly like Google services seems to be doing lately.

And I have not had an SDcard fail yet, I still use the 16GB that came with my Fascinate.

I am not saying that they do not, just that it is rare.

Google services does not fail monthly.

My guess is that those are his work email addresses, not his personal email address.

I can't do any work since a number of the services I use are through Google...not sure if that's a good thing or not. :p

So that's why Play Music wasn't working earlier in the car. I thought it was being flaky as usual.

I thought it was just me... Just got the Nexus 5 and setting it up was talking forever. I'll just wait a couple hours and see if it's back up then.

The system was down for 30 minutes. Oh the agony. I was to busy enjoying life and taking a deuce. I didn't even notice it.
