NEW YORK (AP) - Google's mail and application services are unavailable to some users.
Google's apps status dashboard shows that its Mail, Drive file storage service and office-application services are "disrupted." Its administrator control panel, which lets companies manage their Google applications, is completely down.
The disruptions started affecting people worldwide around 8 a.m. Eastern time.
Google Inc. did not immediately respond to questions about the cause of the outage and how many people were affected.
