Editorial Recently, a story about people mistaking a news story for the Facebook login page has received considerable media attention. It's currently being seen by many as justification for the recent trend in locking people out of their computers for their own protection - but anyone with even basic mathematical skills and a calculator should come to the conclusion that this story has been blown way out of proportion.

Most people don't care how DNS works .. they type facebook login and let Google do its magic and click the first link, because Google used to be always right.

Thing is Google just shouldn't have moved dump news items to the top of the search results.

But still, we still live in the computer stone age. Things will be very different in 10 years.


Edit: I don't believe the 400 million users FB claim. How many of those are spambots and marketing droids?
