Penny Arcade has already handily mocked online maps, but I'd just like to put in my two cents about how MapQuest fucking sucks.
What follows is an actual map I received when attempting to find a nearby Japanese restaurant.
Meanwhile, until recently, all my results on dexonline.com looked like the following:
They seem to have fixed it now, but seeing as they're still using Mapquest, that just means an upgrade from pointing me to Kansas to telling me to drive a five-mile circle on the freeway for no reason.
While I'm on the subject, I hate sites with "online" in their names. Of course it's fucking online, it's a website. Why not just register dexdotcomwastaken.com and have done with it? I mean, maybe I'm not one to talk since my domain name has a hyphen in it, but seriously, what was wrong with qwestdex.com?
I also don't like sites with names that end in net.com. What the hell is that?
But I think we can all agree that the stupidest domain ever is news.com.com.
