Searching Like It's 2001

This is interesting. As part of their 10th birthday celebration, Google released a special version that searches the Internet as it existed in 2001.

Google Circa January 2001

We really used to use this thing at iNetNow?

Some interesting finds:


Apple iPhone (rumors abound)

911 (unbelievable in hindsight)

Timely Persuasion (just horses, no book)

facebook myspace (nothing!)

Tried to find a GoogleWhack back then using modern terms but came up empty. Ideas?

I was, however, able to find one that still works least until this post gets indexed:

Atnos Fitzwilly (just read the excerpt on the results page...)
