There’s that number again
Saturday, December 14th, 2002
Steven Levy in Newsweek is the latest to fall for Google’s underreporting, writing that its users “punch in 150 million searches a day.” Come on Steven, they’ve been saying “more than 150 million searches a day” for a year.
Sure “150 million” sounds big, but is plainly too low at this point. Would you ever bother writing that the United States has “more than 150 million” residents or, worse, 150 million residents? Dig for the real number rather than reporting the same number published last December.
