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.

IDK, Gmail goes down about 1/10th as much as our corporate email servers. I really wish they'd switch :P

blazer236ix says:

I think its inconsiderate to tell people to chill and go outside when some people rely on emails to work.

Like we do?

blazer236ix says:

That doesn't make his comment any less inconsiderate. I don't get what your point here is.

XavierMatt says:

Agreed.

jackwagon06 says:

What's email? Lol

Posted via Android Central App

Jay Holm says:

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.

blazer236ix says:

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.

XavierMatt says:

I didn't even notice.

NoNexus says:

....And this is why cloud services are NOT the answer yet

rs3vans says:

Right - because local storage NEVER fails...

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.
