Microsoft’s Earth deletes Apple HQ

If you’ve got time on your hands, take a look at Apple’s Cupertino HQ from Google and MSN’s rival map services. MSN’s is shown above. It looks like an empty plot of land. Google’s map shows the Apple Cupertino HQ – a lovely, shiny building probably full of iPods. MSN on the other hand shows an apparently empty field. Not as much as a black turtle-necked jumper remains of Apple’s headquarters. This could be no more than an old picture taken before Cupertino was built or a glimpse of an imagined future.

How this terrible error came about is not yet clear. Nor can we be certain who else has been removed from Bill’s upgraded planet. Even more disturbing MSN’s Virtual Earth still shows the twin towers of the World Trade Center in all their pre-9/11 glory. Bill… that’s not cool…


  1. wait. how did you even find out about this? there’s no chance that you search both sites concurrently right?

  2. and what’s “sonic suidice” anyway? typo? cause the google monkeys turn up nothin’

  3. Dude, you’ll be surprised at what I do in my spare time.

    And what typo….? 😉
