Google search engine strands Web surfers: Never once, in all the years I’ve been on the Net, have I known Google to be down.
Google stranded some Web surfers Monday, unable to meet visitors’ requests for more than an hour. At around 11:15 a.m. ET, the world’s No. 1 search engine produced the message.
I think “stranded” is a stretch here — there was no functionality lost that couldn’t be met by other services.
