Prince Philip exposes Google


www.news.com.au


BRITAIN'S Prince Philip, who has a long history of provoking embarrassing moments, unintentionally left Google chiefs red-faced this week.
The 87-year-old was visiting the online giant's London headquarters with Queen Elizabeth II, and its bosses were giving them a presentation of the signature Google Earth application.

Using Buckingham Palace as an example, they demonstrated how it could zoom in close to show astonishing detail of buildings, streets and even vehicles from a bird's eye view.

Prince Philip, always ready with polite questions at such functions, asked if it could beam in on Google's own offices, the plush but relatively new buildings in which they were all gathered.

"Do you know where it is?" he asked, according to the Times account of the incident.

With a few mouse clicks, the computer screen scanned across the few hundred metres from Buckingham Palace to Belgrave House, Google's HQ in nearby Buckingham Palace Road ... but it wasn't there.

Another prize Google moment gone wrong!

Only if only google would keep their maps up to date then all this could be avoided. And perhaps all those threads about the satellite anomalies would have been addressed immediately.. but if the company can't be bothered to fix something as simple as their own address on google maps, what hope do we have :p
