Default Google's 2001 Search Index, and the Site That Gave Birth To Thoughts Media

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.google.com/search2001.html' target='_blank'>http://www.google.com/search2001.html</a><br /><br /></div><p>As part of Google's 10th anniversary celebration, they are making their oldest saved <a href="http://www.google.com/search2001.html" target="_blank">index from 2001 available again</a>. For grins, I did a search for Pocket PC and number 4 on the list was Pocket PC Thoughts, complete with a link to the web archive - on my birthday coincidentally. <img src="http://www.ehansberry.com/ppct/smile.gif" border="0" />&nbsp;So even just a few months after the Pocket PC's April 2001 launch, Pocket PC Thoughts was one of the top ranked sites according to Google. As I look through the names of Editors on the site back then, only Jason Dunn remains.<br /><br /><img src="http://www.ehansberry.com/ppct/2008/20081002-ppctlogo.jpg" border="0" /><br /><br />That's right. Look at that big impressive HP Jornada 540 series device in the logo. Go ahead, admit it, you know you want one. <img src="http://www.ehansberry.com/ppct/lol.gif" border="0" />&nbsp;Of course, I am sure today's logo will look just as silly in 2015 when we all have our phones down to the size of a pea embedded in our ears. Other things though will likely remain constant: it will still have Solitaire, won't have a close button and Windows Mobile Device Center for Windows 10 will still be trashing my favorites.</p>
