With all the recent hoo-ha over Apple's mobile app switch from Google Maps to whatever the goose-crap they replaced it with, it's worth remembering that Google's mapping service is also prone to peculiar errors. A new example of this can be seen in the Holborn area where the Royal College of Surgeons is displaying as the Royal College of Searchers. Are the sawbones of Lincoln's Inn Fields among London's biggest users of Google's search engine? Or is it a sly synonymic nod to the Hunterian Museum, housed within the College?
Thanks to Sian of Domestic Sluttery for the tip-off.
