Sounds like Google Apps is the culprit this time. Marco brought it to my attention this morning, hat tip to you! I’ll have to take a look at this in depth, and update my Gmail Outage guide to reflect the new options that Google Gears provides when used in conjunction with Gmail.
- When Gmail fails, users adapt
- Google Mail Outage
- A hole in the cloud
- Google users hit by mail blackout
- Gmail experiences worldwide crash
- Google Groups page shows adult material during outage

- Oops: Gmail outage lasts two and a half hours
- Official Gmail blog
