Google is reporting that there’s a widespread outage of its Talk IM service. The company explains that it’s “aware of a problem with Google Talk affecting a majority of users”.
Google goes on to explain that "affected users are able to access Google Talk, but are seeing error messages and/or other unexpected behaviour." There's currently little news about when the service might return, but Google says it's "continuing to investigate this issue".
Certainly, we're experiencing problems here at the office. Are you? [Google]
