I'm calling this a fake because the screenshot says [Googel Search] on the button. I know Google engineers make typos but that's surely ridiculous...

Oh, and the italicized letters in the post itself spell "not true" so this has just completely devalued everything that is ever posted on that blog in my opinion.

I just received confirmation it's a prank by Franz (not to say Tony's finding wasn't confirmation enough already). I edited the title to indicate this is a hoax.

Yes, the button says Googel (check .....google-status-update.png)

And the domain name is
f a c e s a e r c h . com!

The facesearch . com redirects to
www.facesearch.com/?432cac60
in turn.

[Unlinked. Not sure this is related as it's a different domain. – Tony]
