Google Errs: End Times Upon Us
Ian Lurie Jan 31 2009
Early this morning, if you went to do a search on Google, every listing had a link that read “This site may harm your computer.”
Apparently, the entire internet was infected. Or, if you have a shred of common sense, like one of my clients who e-mailed me, you immediately realized there was a glitch in Google’s Matrix. They fixed it a few minutes later.
This has resulted in 3569 (well, 3570) blog posts on the subject. So far. In about 2 hours.
People. It’s Saturday morning. Get. A. Life.
