    I stumbled upon something interesting. A webpage in Google's cache titled "Apple Announces PowerBook G5 for August Availibility"

    Was this page accidently put up by Apple and then crawled by Google or is this some kinda of fake? As you ca see, the link for the page in Google's cache is: (Give it time to load).

    http://64.233.167.104.search.q=cache:5iRmnZTn43cJ:www.apple.com+applehl=en&lr=&c2coff=1

    When you go to it it looks like a page from Apple's website. When you read the cache in the upper pane of your browser window you see the following statement from the Google cache:

    "This is G o o g l e's cache of http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2005/june/pbg5.html as retrieved on June 2, 2005 21:00:16 GMT."


    However, when you reach the page it get redirected to:

    homepage.mac.com/dzweben/pr/jun/pbg5.html

    A couple of points:
    If this is a fake, Apple needs to find out about it.
    There are some typos on the page.

    I just wanted to share my find with you all considering all the Powerbook G5 discussions.
