It's good to see us back but they could have positioned us a little better. We're to the north of France, not to the west.

Is it just me or does the (otherwise lovely) island appear somehow distorted?

Yeah, who cares about Ireland. Or Iceland. Or whatever-that-island's-called-off-Africa.

Malta? (I'm from there)

Taiwanese Hank (two posts up) didn't mention the absence of Taiwan.

Let's see, what else ... Greenland? Sri Lanka? Cuba? Hispaniola?

Perhaps Google should give up on this particular map ....

I hope it had something to do with me and my friends' very angry e-mails! Glad to have the little island back. It does, however, appear to be higher from the sea than it is tall. I live close to the beach, does this mean if I fall off the beach its a 874 mile drop?

I still see a potential problem in the Google store map. When I clicked on Europe the items are listed as "Pounds" compared to "Euros".

Once you click on Britain you see the incredibly pixelated-enlarged, Google Software logo. Seems a bit lazy for Google.

Ah, I've just noticed "Produced for Google Inc. by Merchandise Mania Limited."
