Well very logic don't you think?! :-)

"A woman injured by a car on a busy road is suing Google for giving her dangerous walking directions."

You are right to claim it Barry, people have no respect for original sources nowadays. And that sucks.

Hold your horses :-), @Barry, Sorry about that. I got the story trough a another website and so I didn't know that SEL was the original source. I probably overlooked the story in Google Reader.

My answer wasn't against you, WebSonic, I know you weren't aware about the source. It wasn't against TG Daily's Emma Woollacott and other plagiarists.
