I noticed earlier today that a few websites I went to while at the office seem to be not responding...but yet ping speed was perfectly fine. Odd. I left the office and while out I went to check my email on my Kindle Fire...Gmail was awfully slow...but then seconds later...just fine. So I am sitting here at home now and I start noticing numerous websites are 3/4 unresponsive...but again everything pings fine...and Google is very slow. Keep in mind - 3 different networks. So as I am surfing around,,,I keep noticing that every few minutes this is happening...so then I start pining google during these periods...anywhere from 30%-50% packet loss. At the same time I am pinging various websites all over - all pinging perfect - 0% loss. Then it occured to me...all of these sites have google pieces within them. ..Hmm...if I was a part of a major hacking team...taking Google down would halt 2/3 of the internet since so many websites use google services within their homepage.
