    I heard this on NPR today (don't ask, and don't get me started), and didn't believe it. I don't believe things at the level happen by accident. One stat I recall is that G's gross average income per click fell 15% since last year, which I find EXTREMELY difficult to believe.

    The fat finger fiasco is a cover up to how poor they did last quarter. Those are probably the real earnings, and when the investors panicked, Google covered it up.

    If I am not mistaken, that's how Martha Stewart got in trouble, cooking the books.
