Google Maps Misplaces Sunrise, Florida
The city's mayor, Mike Ryan, is at a loss. He told CNN, "It felt like a bizarre novel -- that all of a sudden we disappeared. We woke up one morning and we didn't exist." After a public outcry, Google fixed the issue, but not before many business owners claimed that they had lost revenue thanks to the city's disappearing act. Google told CNN that it can't share details about the specific incident, but said "technical errors are investigated and resolved on a case by case basis as quickly as possible." Although understandably frustrated, Mayor Ryan has at least maintained a sense of humor about the situation. This summer he sent a map of Sunrise to Google's Eric Schmidt after filing his complaint.
