Video: Google Maps Gets Annoyed
Kids on long trips love to ask the question, “are we there yet?”
It seems that the Google Maps developers had a touch of humor when building in the voice commands feature. In the below video, you see that if you ask “are we there yet?” once, Maps tells you how long it will be until you arrive at your destination. Ask it again, it will say, “no.” Ask it a couple more times, and it says, “If you ask me again, we won’t stop for ice cream.”
This is not the first instance of “easter eggs” in current mobile technology. Apple’s Siri has several, including one where she will explain that you cannot divide zero by zero rather offensively, saying:
Imagine that you have zero cookies and you split them evenly among zero friends. How many cookies does each person get? See? It doesn’t make sense. And Cookie Monster is sad that there are no cookies. And you are sad that you have no friends.
