Google Updates Maps, Decides to cut Burj Khalifa in Half
Oh Google Maps, how I love you.
Not only are you a lifesaver when I'm stuck trying to find my way around the bowels of Al Barsha, but you're also a countless source of entertainment.
From photos of people coming out of 'questionable' shops, to rumors that you've run over a donkey, there's always something to be found on Google Maps that will make you chuckle.
So of course, imagine my delight when I found out that you've recently updated your maps. And of course, Dubai got a new lick of paint in the update; you know, because we have so many new buildings and roads come up overnight that we should commission a Google satellite to be permanently hovering over our city.
But in your haste, I cringe somewhat when I see what your update has done to our beloved Burj Khalifa. For mysteriously enough, you've decided to hack off half of the building. Now I know that you've got to be rolling in some serious kind of cash to be living in the world's tallest tower, but don't you think the people living there are a bit lonely now that you've relegated their home to nothing more than a floating object in the sky? An Unidentified Floating Building if you wish? Did anyone warn the residents when you decided to hack away at their building? And more importantly, did you use the world's largest axe to accomplish this architectural feat?
My humble opinion is to fix this as quickly as you can, Google. No one likes to be left hanging...or floating.
