Google Loses Vwls (Vowels) but translates for animals.

See something strange here ? In a shocking incident, google lost all its vowels today.
Google gave this official reason "At 6:01 am Pacific Time, during routine maintenance at one of our datacenters, the frontend web servers in that particular datacenter started failing to render the letter 'a' for a subset of users. As error rates escalated, the strain spread to other datacenters. We worked quickly to avoid a cascading failure of the entire alphabet by implementing a stopgap solution that limited the damage to the letters 'a,' 'e,' 'i,' 'o,' and 'u.' As a result, we're experiencing Gmail’s first temporary vowel outage. (We’re still investigating whether the letter 'y' is impacted and will post an update here shortly.)"
Shocking I must say…
Read the official blog entry from Google…quite shocking considering Google just released the translator for animals.
