Today's Google doodle is the most fun I've had all day. And what an apt prologue to the start of hockey season.

Angry Birds was fun, but Angry Birds Star Wars is crack.

I wanted to see it with my own eyes, so I took a couple of screenshots on an iPhone 5 yesterday. The left one is Apple Maps and the right one is Google Maps in Mobile Safari. Then I added an outline to a road for reference.
The left hand map has the town of Mildura only about 50 mi off to the SSW, but in a scenic area of salt lakes in a national park...

There have been some other articles since, explaining how this came to be, and they do a pretty good job of highlighting what was so wrong with Apple's mapping process in the first place.
