Google Talk Suffers Outage



In the last 6 months or so, I've become very reliant on Google Voice.
The service handles all of my text messaging as well as taking care of storing and notifying me of voicemail.
So, it kind of goes without saying that at this point of time, I flat out *need* access to the service.
Yesterday, there was an outage of the service and, in typical Google fashion, they were all over trying to fix it.
Along the lines of their motto "Don't Be Evil", they also handled the outage with a great deal of transparency.
If you ever want to see how these things are dealt with as well as the progress they are making on these situations, you can Go to the following link.. It is their App Status Dashboard.

So I've come away from this situation impressed. The nice thing about dealing with Google on these types of things is that you know they have the resources and brainpower to get these things rectified quickly.
