mantis2009 writes: Engadget, the Webby Award-winning gadget blog, fell victim to a serious error which saw its traffic redirected to TVSquad.com for a period of at least 30 minutes tonight. Compounding the error, Engadget's RSS feed apparently sent TVSquad stories out to Engadget subscribers, including Slashdot's Firehose. On Twitter, an Engadget editor apologized and explained that a "system wide" error was to blame. Both Engadget and TVSquad are owned and operated by Weblogs, Inc, a subsidiary of AOL, Inc.
