I’ve just learned this from Al-Jazeera’s Street Talk by Riz Khan this morning.
Google Maps is trying to outdo Yahoo! Maps in terms of giving service to its clients. Outdo they did. Try getting directions on how to get from New York to London. Here’s a print screen of what you’ll get, notice direction no. 24.
Direction No. 24 says:
Swim across the Atlantic Ocean 3,462 miles
It’s certainly past April Fool’s Day, isn’t it? But Google has their way of making their clients happy. Who’s going to swim that long, well unless you’re trying to break a Guiness record. At least they were kind enough to say how long it was for a swim. eheheh!
I tried getting direction to Manila from Bangkok, both Yahoo! and Google are mum. Waaah, why can’t I go home? 😀
Driving directions cannot be determined between these locations.
We could not calculate driving directions between Bangkok and Manila.
