Recall the earlier post about Google Images, which demonstrated that the index was rarely updated? Well, the folks at Google clearly were listening. When Sergey calls something embarrassing, something has to change. Now, when you query Google Images, you will see Google News images in your results. That’ll solve some of the problems, but it’s just a patch – news only archives 30 days, if memory serves. It’s quite clever, though.
Thanks to Nathan for pointing to this.
Update: Google and others have pointed out that this has been happening since April and is not a reaction to recent events. My bad.
