From the storytellers at The Sun:
A WOMAN is suing Google after claiming its maps application gave her directions to a motorway where she was run over.
Lauren Rosenberg is seeking more than £70,000 in damages from the internet search engine claiming they were directly at fault for the accident.
Mrs Rosenberg used Google maps in January last year to get directions by foot to a pal's house.
The application told her to walk for half a mile along "Deer Valley Drive" — which turned out to be a section of the Utah State Route 224 — a motorway with no pavements.
So the route took her to a road that was clearly not a pedestrian route - and she walked along it, because Google told her to?
The case claims that Mrs Rosenberg wasn't warned about this by Google — making them responsible.
Ah, the old excuse. I have no responsibility for anything I do, so if someone doesn't warn me specifically not to do something and I get hurt, it's their fault. It's the logic of the spoilt and not very intelligent child.
Google say the directions came with a warning for pedestrians — but Mrs Rosenberg claimed her Blackberry screen was too small to display the caution.
Ah, I see. It's BlackBerry's fault for having a small screen, so that Mrs Rosenberg didn't see the warning NOT TO WALK ON FUCKING MOTORWAYS. I hope she sues them too. For a million dollars. No, make that ten million. Corporate America must learn that they can't just play with people's lives like this.
Actually, I hope the driver of the car that hit her counter-sues for reckless endangerment, or whatever they call it over there.
One of them will win, surely. My money, sadly, is on Mrs Rosenberg.
