Yesterday I woke up in NYC and went about my day. Part of every day is checking my e-mail, calendar and other things. I do almost all of this using Google products.
My phone kept saying that I had the wrong password for my e-mail which was confusing, but I just sort of shrugged and told myself that I'd check my e-mail later in the day.
But, it kept doing it and it wasn't until I got to the train station that I was able to get on a computer and was then told by Google that my account had been temporarily disabled due to a “perceived violation of either the Google Terms of Service or product-specific Terms of Service.”
I tried going through their SMS code verification as well as every other way I could go and still nothing.
This morning I asked about this on Twitter and someone showed me that Chris Brogan is going through the EXACT same thing.
A hack? Something bigger broken at Google? I don't know what it is, but I just want my stuff to work. I forgot how much I rely on Google. Time to make backup plans because I'm realizing that up until now I haven't had any and that is a bad thing!
Any help that you might have is GREATLY appreciated.
