Something strange is happening in Pakistan.

Team Android has discovered a bizarre Easter egg in Google Maps that shows the Android logo peeing on the Apple logo.

To check it out yourself, just go to these coordinates, and you will be sent to Rawalpindi, Pakistan.

Another piece of Google Maps graffiti was later found in the Takht Pari Forest, which you can see below.



It is believed to be the result of someone abusing Google’s Map Maker tool, and the company issued a statement to The Daily Mail.

“We’ve terminated the Android involved in this incident, and he’ll be disappearing from Google Maps shortly,” said a Google rep.

And Pascal Hartig, a Twitter engineer, also pointed out that it was a random user.



So yes, it would appear that Google Maps review process could use a little work.

Head on over to Pakistan and soak it up now before it’s gone.

Well, she can check that one off her bucket list.

Karen Davis of Port Pirie, Australia has exposed her breasts to the entire world via Google Street View, and she is ecstatic.

"I look at Google Maps a lot and I wanted to be on there and I thought this is the way to do it," she said.

She recently chased down the mapping car and flipped up her shirt just in time for the image to be immortalized online. Although Google seems to have since blurred out her entire body.

News sites all over the world have reported on her little stunt, which she says was mostly for fun. But there was also a message behind it.

"I want my kids to be proud of their body and proud of who they are no matter what they look like," she told The Project.

She was later reported to the police for disorderly behavior, because someone doesn't have a sense of humor.

And she recently turned herself in to the authorities.

"I thought I would save them the petrol," she told The Recorder.

Distraction of the Day: You Can Now Play Pac-Man on Google Maps

Google is celebrating April Fool’s Day a little early.

A new option on Google Maps lets you turn the world into a playable game of Pac-Man.

From the support page:

Welcome, Player 1! You can now play the classic arcade game PAC-MAN in Google Maps with streets as your maze. Avoid Blinky, Pinky, Inky, (and Clyde!) as you swerve the streets of some famous places around the world. But eat the pac-dots fast, because this game will only be around for a little while.

You can plan anywhere with enough streets by clicking the icon in the bottom left corner of the screen, but Google also offers some clues to the best locations where a special Pac-Man marker has already been place.

  • Don’t drop the ball on the eve of your victory!
  • Triumph is délicieux.
  • Does a Galaxian bonus await at the top of those 272 steps?
  • Chomp your way to independence down seven lanes of July.
  • PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN can’t agree on which side is prettier: the American or the Canadian. Which side do you fall on, eh?
  • After a chat with the Sphinx, PAC-MAN sounds more like “Dokki Dokki”.
  • Pause game play to admire Chagall’s stained glass windows and have a bit of chocolate.
  • Can you score 10^(10^100) points?
  • Whether they’re flashing blue or sporting their natural colors, Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde are always kakkoii. Even Vogue agrees they’re living in the trendiest of neighborhoods.
  • Previous PAC-MAN lives don’t get to rest in a white marble mausoleum.
  • Head to the valley of the sun and earn your grade in the art of the game.
  • How well can you navigate the radiating streets of the distrito federal?
  • Victory is like gothic glockenspiel musik to our ears.
  • Pay special attention to Blinky – he might blend in with the dreaming red kangaroos!
  • You’ll find the Beach PAC-MAN World Cup here before long.

You can expect the entire Internet to be flooded with April Fool’s Day pranks like this on Wednesday.

It says the game will only be available for a limited time, but hopefully they decide to keep the Pac-Man hack as a permanent option.

It’s like the new movie “Pixels,” only in real life.

In honor of International Polar Bear Day, Google Maps has launched the ability to virtually visit wild polar bear country via Google Street View. The featured location is in the stunning tundra landscape of Cape Churchill and Wapusk National Park in Northern Manitoba.

"You have the opportunity to see polar bears in their natural habitat. There's imagery of sparring bears – this behavior that we see with male bears where they stand up on their hind legs and kind of play fight. There's images of a mom nursing a cub," said Krista Wright, executive director of the conservation group Polar Bears International, which partnered with Google on the project.

If you could have full access to one of the most ecologically diverse places in the world for a day, where would you start exploring? If you paid any attention in biology class, your best bet is probably the Galapagos Islands, correct? Well, you can now take a virtual tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site in the shoes of Charles Darwin straight from your desk, thanks to Google Maps' latest addition to its expansive Street View database. To celebrate this update, Google has launched the website Darwin for a Day where people can collaborate to investigate and document the islands' vast range of native plant and animal life, the findings from which will be passed on to iNaturalist and the Charles Darwin Foundation for further research.
