Today's award goes to Microsoft's Bing Maps. The Register reports:
Microsoft has misplaced Melbourne, the four-million-inhabitant capital of the Australian State of Victoria.
A search on Bing Maps for “Melbourne, Victoria, Australia” says the city is at 37.813610, 144.963100 which we've screen-captured above.
The co-ordinates are right save for one important detail: Melbourne is at 37.8136° South. Bing's therefore put it in the wrong hemisphere.
There's more at the link.
Oh, well . . . what's a few thousand miles - and a hemisphere - between friends? Watch that GPS, though, as you navigate around Australian roads looking for Melbourne. The Pacific Ocean's a bit deeper than a local puddle!
