Does Google Feel TOO Lucky"?
Sting opened his USA tour in San Jose yesterday. We bought tickets months ago.
The SJSU Event Center is at: 209 South 7th Street, San Jose.
Type that in Google Maps and you get: 209 NORTH(!!!) 7th Street, San Jose.
I hadn't noticed the subtle change. I drove according to the directions (even entered the address off the printout into my vehicle's navigation system). No event center at 209 North... only slums :-(
PS: Yahoo! Maps finds the place just right. MSN Maps and Street&Trips don't believe a 209 South 7th exist so they show the street (not at a specific number on the street).
Sometimes it's better not to feel too lucky.
There's a happy end: with a friend's help we eventually found the place in time!
Update (May '05):
Nissan is right (see comments below). Google did solve the bug, they now use a "did you mean..." approach.
