Oops…Google is Broken

This is troubling. Using multiple browsers (to ensure it wasn’t my issue) has turned up an error this morning with Google. It seems that *every* search result is a “…site may harm your computer.”

The outcome is I’m unable to use Google. I know no one is perfect — and that Google is still probably in “beta” — but all of our newfound dependencies on the cloud make any hiccups like this a big problem. Especially, when like I am right now, have a deadline in 7 minutes (we’re starting a podcast and four of us will be on it so I cannot delay). Google’s Marissa Mayer publishes their mea culpa (and no, clicking that link will not take you to malware!).
