2/28    Yahoo maps is fallible--or rather driving directions that it gives.
        Led me and my friend on a wild goose chase on Sat:  didn't even
        end up at the right place.  Don't trust it.  --PeterM
        \_ print maps you buy a t a bookstore are often very unreliable also.
           i have yet to see a map that really accurately gives locations of
           all the highway exits and such, and short of USGS quad  maps or
           NOAA charts, ive yet to see a map that doesn't screw up the
           topography.  good mapmaking is not cheap or easy.  even the NOAA
           charts go out of date constantly.  trusting a 2 year old NOAA
           chart can cost you your life.
                \_ I got lucky.  My chart was out of date and I ended up in
                   Harlem but Robocop saved my life!
        \_ What a concept! Don't trust something you get off the internet!
           Its a handy tool, it isn't perfect. It always pays to double
           check what you're doing, especially if you might end up
           in Montana when you were trying to go to Mountain View and
           you aren't smart enough to realize that it is taking way
           too long once you start going.
                \_ Don't trust anything you hear on the net including motd
                   advice about not trusting anything you hear on the net or

        \_ mapquest
        \_ it does present you with a big disclaimer you know
        \_ yahoo bites in many ways. use http://www.mapsonus.com
        \_ learn to navigate. I tried tripquest once, and it tried to
           run me down a street that the cops closed that night for some
           street fair.
           \_  Actually, I told my friend to let me navigate from now on.
               I didn't know Yahoo maps was fallible:  I do a much better
               job with a roadmap than Yahoo. --PeterM
                \_ Yahoo does plot addresses along streets which roadmaps
                   can't quite tell you. -jeffwong
        \_ I've had bad luck with yahoo too (non-existant offramps) while
           http://mapsonus.com has yet to fail me. -jones
                \_ Yahoo maps is really using MapQuest's database. You need
                to blame it on MapQuest. At any rate, MapQuest is a standard
                industry product, and MapsOnUs is a standard academia product.
                INDUSTRY SUX AND ACADEMIA R3WLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
