GoogleInsider writes: 'In response to Apple pulling the Google Voice application from the iPhone App Store, Google has removed all search results leading to Apple.com from its index. Google is also redirecting searches for "iPhone" and "app store" to the IMDb.com page for Payback.' That article is a work of satire, but Google's head of search Marissa Meyer sent it out to her 4000 followers on Twitter, then thought better of it and deleted it. Unfortunately for her, nothing on the Internet is ever deleted, and TechCrunch spotted it and reported on it. Could this turn into a problem for Google? In related news Apple releases a new iPhone.

Well, sometime around 9am EST I found that I no longer had my personalized Google homepage but was left with nothing more than a new iGoogle Homepage template. Has this happened with anyone else, and if so, why!?"
