  4. Google said they had a DNS problem for 15 minutes:

    "Google shuts down for 15 minutes"
    MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - Googling stopped for 15 minutes on Saturday.
    The world's leading internet search engine shut down from 6:45 to 7
    p.m. eastern time, according to Google spokesman David Krane.
    "It was not a hacking or a security issue," said Krane. He said the
    problem was related to the DNS, or Domain Name System, though Krane did
    not elaborate. The DNS translates domain names for computers.
    "Google's global properties were unavailable for a short period of
    time," Krane said. "We've remedied the problem and access to Google has
    been restored worldwide."

    "The death and rebirth of Google"
    According to the official statements, for 15 minutes, during 6:45 and
    7:00 PM Eastern Time, Google was down. And we I say Google was down, I
    mean the entire range of services: Gmail, Google News, Froogle.
    Although David Krane, the company's spokesman, said the servers were
    down for 15 minutes, several users didn't have access for
    approximately 45 minutes.
    During this time, anyone who typed in was redirected to or other pages, convincing many that Google was defeated
    by hackers.
    In reality, it seems it was a DNS problem, or at least that's what
    David Krane said for Mercury News , stressing the idea that there was
    no security or hacking issue. This might be true, since many users
    reported they could access Google's services by typing in the IP
    address of the search engine.
