Ridiculous? You be the judge.

Wow! So when you thought you’ve heard everything, I come bearing some pretty ridiculous news. An article on the New York Daily News reported that a woman was hit by a car after following directions from google on her phone. She had looked up “walking” directions on her Blackberry and planned on going to her destination on foot. She claimed that Google didn’t warn her about the absence of a sidewalk along the highway. Ok, so Google should be blamed for you not being attentive? I mean if it was the driver’s fault she could have just sued the driver. She instead sued both the driver and Google. Does that make any sense? Hm… What do you guys think? The woman is alright by the way.  Here is the full article.

    I read about this!!! That was the dumbest thing Ive ever heard anyone do! I remember google mapping directions to a gas station once when my friends and I went on a road trip, we were almost on empty and the nearest gas station was a mile away, we barely made it to “Gas 5” according to google maps, and to our surprise Gas 5 has been closed since 1996. It was an abandoned gas station, and we had to call a tow truck.. True story. lol
    Great blog by the way! 🙂
