Google's Gmail service goes down

The sky is falling down. The sky is falling down. Users of Gmail had a taste of a post internet apocalypse when Google's popular email service went down just after 10am this morning.

A spokesperson for the internet giant gave the following statement to The Register: "A number of users are having difficulty accessing Gmail. We're working to resolve the problem now. We know how important Gmail is to our users so we take this issue very seriously and we apologise for the inconvenience."

Back in October Gmail was out of action for over a day causing mayhem for a number of companies who rely on Google's email service to conduct business. It is not clear exactly how many people have been affected by the latest problems and when the hiccup will be resolved.
