Submission + - Google Apps Brownouts

LaughingCoder writes: According to an article on PC World at http://news.yahoo.com/s/pcworld/20070328/tc_pcworl d/130234&printer=1;_ylt=AqGYYKkLK4BaOrR8wAZBpFoRSL MF Google has been experiencing some outages with their online office suite Google Apps that have affected Premier (i.e. paying) customers. So far customers seem to be understanding, though slightly concerned that this may be a trend. At least one customer also expressed dismay at the level of support he received. It will be interesting to see how Google adapts to this new model where its users are paying customers who have higher expectations. When Gmail is unavailable to me (which has happened occasionally) I take it in stride since it's free. But if I was paying for it, and I bet my business on it, that would be a whole different ballgame and I would expect much better service.
