Heres an excerpt:

Quote
Googlebot blamed for United stock crash
Google provided link to six-year-old bankruptcy story and made it appear current to Google News users, after which UAL's stock dropped steeply in price

Google is to blame for publishing a six-year-old news story that caused the stock of UAL, the parent company of United Airlines, to drop sharply on Monday, the Tribune said in a statement.

The problem started when Googlebot, the software program that Google News uses to index news sites, mistook one of the most popular stories on the Web site of The Sun-Sentinel, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., for breaking news. The story, "United Airlines Files for Bankruptcy," was then posted on Google News as a new story, even though the original news story was published on Dec. 10, 2002.

Great seeing you there KK, hope we can do it again soon.

Did they charge you any extra for the customizing we did to the front of the car?  Devilish

If they did, I haven't seen the charge yet.
