Google glitch disrupts search engine, e-mail

Technical problems at Google are preventing an unknown number of people from using its Internet search engine, e-mail and other services. Google hasn't provided specifics on what went wrong.

In a Thursday post on its Web site, the Mountain View-based company reported that a "small subset of users" weren't able to get into their e-mail accounts and that those troubles might have affected other services as well.

Multiple messages posted on Twitter, a popular information-sharing forum, have indicated that people all over the world have had trouble with the Google search engine and e-mail. But other Twitter users say their Google services have been running smoothly.
