I Am Entertained.

A woman sues Google for giving her bad walking directions. This guy writes about it:
Why trust the machines when you can trust your own eyes, your own brain, your own basic sense of survival?

This philosophical question comes to mind after reading the tragic tale of a woman, her eyes, her brain, her BlackBerry, and her Google Maps.

According to an exhaustive analysis presented by Search Engine Land, Lauren Rosenberg decided to take a walk in Park City, Utah, on January 19, 2009.

I will try and ignore just how fundamentally un-American this act was in order to focus on some of the ensuing action.

People who leave their houses w/o a suit of armor surrounding them get just what they deserve.

My basic sense of survival when going for a walk? Jeepers some people are a little intense.
