Gmail Service Disrupted, Again

By Matt Van Hoven 

Webnewser reports:

For the second time this month, Google’s popular email service is experiencing outages.

The search giant’s Apps Status Dashboard today registers a “service disruption” for Gmail.

Users are being informed that Gmail is “temporarily unable to access your contacts.” As is now custom, users are turning to Twitter to report problems sending and receiving emails. And to complain.

Gmail also went down on Sept. 1 before returning to full operability about 18 hours later.

Update: Apparently, Google Talk is down too, reports Tribble.
