Google Accelerator Brings Satire to Life

I remember the first time I read the expanded Assembly Command Set with such immortal tools as "branch and hang" and "Convert to Roman Numerals" and, my personal favorite, "halt and catch fire." (Here's an even bigger collection).

Well, Google has gone ahead and done it. Their new Accelerator tool actually clicks and caches everything on a web page, ignoring little distractions like Javascript confirmation dialogues, including delete and abort buttons. Needless to say, this isn't good.... there's a patch. Does Google also sell back-up utilities, I wonder? [via All About Access]
