Thread: Google time machine

  1. #1

    Default Google time machine

    for their tenth anniversary celebration google has decided to let you search their old index. this is how the internet was back in 2001.

    http://www.google.com/search2001.html

    I looked up coachella and i saw how their page was back in two thousand and one. myspace is a storage service, facebook is an incidental phrase in unrelated pages. this is seriously awesome internet nostalgia.

    here's the old coachella page:

    http://web.archive.org/web/200105162...com/coachella/

    hope you enjoy this as much as i did. try googling your favorite band.

    7 years ago...but yeah, it's funny to look at some old sites back then.

    seems like sites mainly used frames back then as well...too funny.

    based on the title of this thread I was very disappointed when I clicked in and saw what it was actually about.

    With how much money they're commanding, I don't think that would be all that bad. Now, if it were to come to fruition--then you do have a point.

    when you googled "porn" in 2001 there were 4,490,000 results. In 2008 there are 223,000,000. That's actually not that impressive.

    our children are going to be so spoiled.

    i'll have to keep them in check by reminding them of when I was a youngin and only had 4 million porn sites to look at
