I know Google Maps is in beta testing (and it sure does look good) but even in it’s infancy you’d think that some very basic searches would turn up the correct information. Typing in some well-known landmarks locates us on their maps at some very strange places, all around or near the geographic center of the US:
- "Fenway Park" brings us to a restaurant in Sedan, Kansas, called "The Red Buffalo Gift and Coffee Bar".
- "Yankee Stadium" takes us to the "Bartlesville Community Center" in the home of Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous Price Tower.
- "Briggs Field" (I thought I’d throw the program a curveball) brings us to the "Individual Mausoleum Company" of Parsons, Kansas. Not far off, but still not right – I think they transposed this search with the one for "Giants Stadium End Zone".
Get to work, Sergey.
