I use Gmail for most of my mail these day. Today has been hard. Gmail has been down since mid-morning, so I can’t access my mail. Not with FireFox, not with IE, not with WAP, not with the Java Mobile phone applet I have.
With all the rave about software as a service and applications and data “out there in the cloud”, this highlights a downside – there is no one I can call, no one I can fire for this mishap. My only recourse is to wait, and wait, and wait. . .and then switch to another email account!
