As Erick Schonfeld reported today on TechCrunch, a new study has come out that shows how reliable Google really is. Amazingly, Google was down just three minutes in Brazil between September 1, 2006 and September 1, 2007, while the United States version was down just thirty-one minutes. Wow.
And if you consider the amount of traffic to Google each day and the total number of queries the site receives per minute, it's truly amazing what Google has been able to accomplish.
Google -- I applaud you for doing what you do and I ask that you continue to do it. In a word, your service is fantastic.
