Thomas and I have always dreamt of going to stunning Antarctica, the holy grail for wildlife enthusiasts and nature lovers everywhere. And now thanks to Apple’s rather controversial new map application, we have.
Somehow, Apple’s digital cartographers seem to have placed Berlin at the heart of the ice continent. While I’ll admit the temperatures seem to be dropping around here, they are nowhere near -50 C. Just to be sure, I wandered the streets this morning hunting for penguins and sea lions, but none were to be found. Bummer.
Moral of the story: If you are using your new iPhone 5 to find the Brandenburg Gate or the Reichstag, they’re not in the Southern Hemisphere.
