Android Pissing at Apple on Google Maps

You read the title. One of my friend Ahmad Babar just spotted this on Google Maps — an Android bot pissing over at the Apple logo. You can usually find similar things over at a hate-Apple sticker shop or on YouTube where people use it as a thumbnail to boost their youtube views, but looks very surprising Google would let something like this go online over at Google Maps for everyone to see. This probably could be some kind of a joke by Google — but I think we are way past the April Fool’s Day now.

It’s right there on Google Maps. You can check it out here! Attached below is a screenshot of what you will find near by Rawalpindi, Pakistan.

This is not just on the desktop version of Google Maps. Here is a screenshot from the Android app:

And it actually goes away when switched to the “Satellite view”.

And now we have a new update. The following message was found by one of our readers “Carlos Fernandes” – Thank you!

There seems to be a big Skype logo around “Lahore, Pakistan” as well.

May be someone at Google/Android was really pissed at Apple for something?

Thanks Ahmad Babar!
