What in the world?
I'm not sure if you are saying that google maps had something to do with a boat hitting you? If so, then perhaps you better file a lawsuit like this lady!

Sounds good to me. Personal responsibility is so overrated.
Hah that was my intentions of this. A few weeks ago i was looking for the directions to Cedar Point and I looked at the walking directions and I laughed and made the right decision not to take that route.
When I heard about that lady today I died laughing.
...was that the sound of something whooshing overhead...?
Maybe it was guiding you through the shallow spots in the lake.
I laughed pretty hard when I heard about the woman suing Google. They just need a disclaimer when you download an app that says "Not to be used by morons".
The only way that woman would have a legitimate lawsuit against Google is if she was hit by the Google Streetview Van.
there are disclaimers, when you use google maps for walking directions you get this:
"Walking directions are in beta.
I was reading this story a while back about a family that ended up stranded in the snow because they followed their GPS on a route that was not plowed during the winter (I guess the rising snow didn't warn them).
However, the article is a great example of weak journalism. If you notice on the link, the picture including is in fact a Sirius radio unit, not a GPS unit. How lazy can people be?

For some reason, google nav will provide driving directions from Los Angeles to Hawaii. Even more odd - it tells you to drive to Seatlle first, before you drive across the ocean.
I believe it suggests you Kayak across the ocean. It will do the same for New York to London, or something along those lines. It's probably just a little practical joke they placed in the system.
hey... google shows how to get there, how you do it is on you... lol
I have seen this kayak suggestion, but I think they want you to use Kayak.com to book trans-oceanic transportation.
It's a conspiracy.
Clearly the walking directions google is giving are those that Jesus might take.
Seeburgers Cheeseburgers FTW!
I doubt it; I thought Google had fallen out with Jesus over the whole Android thing... oh wait, different messiah
I was using Google Navigator yesterday and it never once mentioned stopping at red lights. How unsafe is that??
The magical Voice just said to turn and I did. And got blasted by a bus.
I'm going to sue too.
