Those google IPs are just incredibly useful. When your DNS is broken, you have a bootstrap problem.

Happened to me just on Saturday. I use auto-configure from home, but the (ISP-supplied) router was failing to resolve DNS when it came back up after a power cut. 8.8.8.8 has the virtue of being memorable without having to go online to look it up first!
