Speaking Of Google

I know, I just talked a bunch about Google, but I did have one other thing to say. I was trying to log-in and check my Adsense revenues (just to see if my running ads on the left side of this site is doing any good). I accidently typed the URL as "http://www.google.com/adsesne" (when it's obviously "https://www.google.com/adsense/"). Having worked so much on Google, I almost naturally expected a "Did you mean: https://www.google.com/adsense/" error to pop up on their very generic 404 error page. Would've save me all of about .25 seconds of typing if I could just have clicked.

Why doesn't Google implement some of their killer technology in other places on their site? It would just make sense, given their skills, to have at least a slightly intelligent 404 error page on their site. Heck, even mine's more useful.

I'm still waiting for a fully-integrated results page, Google. Since I wrote that rant a year ago, things have certainly improved, but all the fancy tools in the world are useless if there's no easy way to use them all in one interface.
