Hmmm.... did anyone hear anything about a Google outage that's been going on for the past 20 minutes or so? It appears to be DNS related (ns1-ns4.google.com didn't have a record of www.google.com or www.gmail.com). I can't find any articles on the net about it and was wondering if anyone heard anything.
N.B. Seems to be resolved now, after ~ 40 minutes or so.

Not sure what happened but i confirmed it at quite a few places. It was DNS related (I was getting host/domain not found errors with www.google.com returning a CNAME record pointing to www.l.google.com and l.google.com not existing.
haven't heard anything, but i saw it. www.google.com got changed
to a CNAME to www.l.google.com, which wasn't there, and news.google.com
got changed to a CNAME to news.l.google.com, which wasn't there.
they're there now. not sure what the story is, though.
Here's what I get when singling out google.com:
