Google Not So Perfect:Human Error Today

When I first got on today and used Google to on my daily sites that I always go on, I saw they flagged every single site on their search engines. Now I knew this was wrong, so I did a search on 2 other sites and got the exact same error as I did prior. So I used Yahoo instead, no problem....

Well, while doing my research today for this blog, I found out that it wasn't just me who had this issue. Google has released a statement about it on their official blog today. They say they will work hard to find out the cause and to make sure it never happens again.

I doubt they can prevent "human error", every time. Will I use Google less? I don't know! If it keeps happening, I will use it less. But for now, that its fixed, I will still use it.

Were you affected by this?

Apple Changes iTunes

So, I guess Steve Jobs isn't making enough money in his opinion. Apple Inc, is lowering the prices on some songs to $0.69 cents and all tracks now have zero copy protection. Meaning that people like me, who have an mp3 player that isn't in Ipod can move the songs onto them without any issues. Yippe!

Songs will come in 3 tiers of price levels, 0.69, 0.99 and $1.29(that is pricey).

I guess even apple is suffering. I wonder how Zune and Microsoft is doing?.....

Are you happy about this?
