Very "mature": image of an Android pissing on Apple's logo found in Google Maps

Posted: , by Peter K.

The rivalry between Apple and Google will certainly remain one of the most heated ones in the tech world for some time. Both giants regularly takes light (and sometimes not so light) jabs at one another - in one of Apple's 2014 keynotes, Tim Cook referred to Google's Android as "toxic hellstew of vulnerabilities", while Google has also mentioned Apple a few times in its announcement events.

Well, the rivalry took an unexpected and not-so-mature turn - the folks over at TeamAndroid have stumbled upon something pretty curious on Google Maps. If you navigate to the outskirts Rawalpindi, a large city in northern Pakistan, you'll come across an Android logo urinating over Apple's logo. The exact coordinates of the controversial image are N 33°30'52.5", E 73°03'33.2", you can check it out here.

We wish we could say we were joking, but no, we're not. If you switch to "Satellite View", the slightly-offensive scene disappears in thin air. We can't say for sure whether Google has closed its eyes before this not-so-gentlemanly jest, probably the deed of a wrongdoer who has decided to express their ever-lasting love for Android with the help of Google's Map Maker.

Wow, I have to say this is stupid and childish. This looks like is a work from a apple hater and that person is a stupid person. Shame on you Google for allowing this behavior.

Sound familiar?

2013 Tim Cook tries to use Android wide spectrum OS benefits as slander against Google.

2013 Apple programs Siri to make snide remarks about Google Glass

Earth Day 2014 Apple makes an ad trash talking Samsung for copyright claims.

They are above nothing.

Am i the only one who think these kind of mocking is immature(if it is real anyway)?. I don't care whether it is Microsoft, Google, Samsung, Apple or anyone else, i mean i rather they spend their time market their product in a right way and focusing on improving their product than this?

Actually this is the abuse of Google Map Maker. Google was actually trying to make their product better by providing this feature but there is always somone who'd abuse such freedom.

On a sidenote, Nokia HERE maps doesn't even have the maps for Pakistan so really Google is at least trying I guess.

I'm really amazed to see that this is a tech site and the people visiting this website are the ones that are more enlightened about tech than most of their friends but no one pointed out that this is not the work of Google or any Google employee.

Google provides a great option for the general public to edit the Google maps which is helpful for countries where Google can't pay much attention.

You are even free to report such stupidity.

Search for Google Map Maker.

Well clearly ECPirate37 neither did most of the people here and not knowing about it actually made it funny as everyone believed that this is a Google easter egg.

And you are most welcome, glad I could help someone.

What's even more unbelievable is that other tech sites are linking to Phone arena's story but even they didn't mention about Map Maker in their article. Didn't expect such childishness neither from Phone arena nor from android authority.

Peter K. please at least mention this in the article that this is the work of an individual and not Google or Google reprensentive.

Hey there, azzad!

We are pretty aware of Google's Map Maker. If you actually read the very last sentence of the article, you'll certainly notice that we've narrowed down the likely culprit for this "easter egg", who is most probably a mischievous wrongdoer.

Nobody mentioned anything about Google editing a landmark location in a little-known Pakistani city in order to piss off the folks over at Cupertino.

Cheers!
