Google Deleted Its Own Blog

A student from Texas left internet giant Google with egg on its face by taking control of the company's official blog when it went offline yesterday. The unnamed student tried registering a new blog with the Google-owned Blogger service using the same googleblog name after the search firm's usual page failed to load. "The username was giving a 404, so I tried registering a new blog with it. Surprisingly, it worked.", said the student Google later admitted that it had accidentally deleted the blog and that there was no widespread hacking problem for Blogger. Source: Vnunet Tags: , ,
