Wrong home demolished because of Google maps error
Double-checking would be good.
WFAA, an ABC affiliate in Dallas, reports that Billy L. Nabors Demolition was scheduled to tear down a house at 7601 Cousteau Drive. The company is blaming Google Maps for the error, which sounds convenient, but if you enter “7601 Cousteau Drive” into Google Maps, it directs you to 7601 Calypso Drive.
We like to poke fun at Apple Maps on occasion, but as Engadget notes, both addresses are correct in Apple’s app. Regardless, the fact that the demolition company was careless enough not to double-check the location is appalling.
