    This reminds me of the time I went into a Barclays Bank office in Chicago years ago (in the pre-euro era) and asked to send a bank draft in Austrian Schillings. The snarky bank clerk said triumphantly, “In Australia, they don’t use shillings, they use dollars.” Maybe she’s working for Google these days?

    It appears Google Places recently also DON`T know anything anymore about my hometown Fichtelberg in Bavaria, Germany. A couple of weeks ago a lot of places were listed for the town. Since then ONLY the HILL Fichtelberg, which lies in Sachsen, Germany, appears under Google Places. This you can see if you search for “ferienwohnung fichtelberg”. For me it`s strange that Google lists HILLS under Places!

    I know this example is a little off the one in this post. But it shows that Google has the power to change things as they like.
