An anonymous reader writes "How did we work before google? As all Google services die (e.g.: Gmail or Gmaps), time slows down to a crawl. Personally, I just rediscovered how to type a URL by hand! (instead of using the super-lazy box on the top right). Kind of a wake up call. Right in the middle of the havoc, twitter demonstrates once more that it is the fastest way to know what is hot in the world."
