How Much Did Google Outage Cost?

After we reported the Google problems yesterday, David Krane of Google, pointed out that the outage was for about 15 minutes or so. Given that the company had sales of $1.256 billion in the previous quarter, or about $581,481 an hour, apparently the company lost about $145,370 as a result of the outage. Some folks reported that Google and its service were unavailable to them for a longer stretch of time, it is still hard to estimate how much this cost the company.
