Google down the gurgle... again!

Google mail went down again today. These Google failures are becoming a regular (monthly? bi-monthly?) occurrence and I've got to wonder about the economics of this model. Sure you might save some nice round numbers in short term dollars by slashing your IT budget but how many zillions do you loose in productivity (and sales and PR image) when your entire staff can't do their work?

In terms of usability, Google's offerings are the best in the industry. Reliability though... well, that's a different matter.
