Google goes medieval on Hotmail's...

If you go to Google and search for "hotmail," the first entry that comes up is for Hotmail. Great. But what is odd, and maybe just downright mean, is that the black text below that describes the link says:

"Free web-based e-mail. 2MB e-mail storage, signatures, stationery, HTML compatible."

Wait...2MB?!?!? That has to be from about 2002. I'm pretty sure Google updates its indexing, and crawlers more often than every 7 years.

Do you think Google is doing this intentionally? My guess is this could be a mean trick, in the spirit of Google bombs like how searching for "miserable failure" brought up George W. Bush until recently.
