Slate's mistakes.
Dec. 17 2004 12:13 PM


In a Dec. 15 "Gizmos," Paul Boutin originally and incorrectly referred to a Siemens cell phone as the XS-1. It is the SX1.


In the Dec. 14 "International Papers," Carl Schrag referred to British farmer Tony Martin's arrest as "recent." In fact, the shooting incident for which he gained notoriety occurred in August 1999.

In a Dec. 10 "Assessment," Bill Gifford inaccurately stated that Jason Giambi's enhanced performance had won him an $82 million contract with the New York Yankees. In fact, the full seven-year contract was for $120 million, $38 million of which has already been paid to Giambi.

In this Dec. 2 "Mixing Desk," Hua Hsu incorrectly called She Loves You Greg Dulli's "solo debut." This solo album is not his first.
