Google Maps and London, act II

In December I spotted and reported an error on Google Maps: according to the maps, Buckingham Palace stood next door to the House of Parliament.
I found it quite funny: big multinational, they require you to have excellent programming skills to work for them, even if you are just in catering, and then they miss on one of the most iconic landmark of London and Great Britain.

Tonight I got a mail back from them, saying tha they corrected the error and that now the Palace is in its right place.

I had to laugh out loud because the pro-forma mail they send thanks you  "for sharing your local expertise with other Google users".
It's quite an achievement for somebody who has no orientation and map reading skills whatsoever!
