Google Placing Giant Map Pins Around Tokyo?
Our assumption? Either Google has decided that the next frontier in information sharing isn't the Internet, or it's trying to locate the best places to start an invasion for our future galactic overlords. Either way, the pins, which are placed throughout Tokyo, appear to range from 4- to 13-feet in height and are emblazoned with the all-seeing eye of the Goog. Or, at least, that's what we assume it is.
Of course, tech blog DVICE claims the pins are part of a promotion for Google's 'Favorite Places' feature, in which famous people and trendsetters identify their "favorite places" around the globe.
We, of course, think the pins are just part of the conspiracy to feed intelligence to the coming invasion. [From: DVICE and Google Japan]
