google maps mess up wrong location google map example

The other day my roommate and I used Google Maps to look up the address of a bar where we were meeting friends. The image above is the location our search returned.

Clearly, 14 Orchard Street in New York City is not located in New Jersey.

Google isn’t perfect. The more we come to rely on it, and other web-based companies as sources for critical information, the more scary such results are.


Update: Just looked at at my feed reader and Venture Chronicles is reporting that Gmail is borked…that’s ironic timing
