December 11, 2002: Google Slip-Ups!

When you view a cached page in Google, you get this message: "Google is not affiliated with the authors of this page nor responsible for its content." This is true most of the time, but what about when it's their own page?

Also a fifth of the time you visit another page on that server, you're told "Advertise instantly. With a credit card, your ad goes on Google today". Except it might not be so instant, since if you follow the link, you simply get "The requested URL was not found on this server."

Just goes to show, even Google makes mistakes.
