Anyone wondering why they don’t see many friends or contacts online via Google Talk’s instant messaging list, rest assure that it isn’t due to zombie uprising. The Google Talk service has been down for the majority of users this morning, including a portion of the VentureBeat staffers. Some users are able to sign in, but have no access to their contact lists. Those that can see contacts online are unable to message them. The outage extends to Android services and basically anything else that accesses Google Talk (Gmail, iMessages, Adium X, etc.). Read the full story at Venture Beat.
