Oh No, Another Problem with Apple Maps: Fictional Neighborhood Names Like “North Park” and “Intermission”

Rambasta fairly questions this Apple Map:

Oh Apple Maps, will you ever win?

Rockslide at Quintara and 12th Avenue: Innocent Lincoln Mark VIII Totally Pwned in the Sunset District This AM

Saturday, March 26th, 2011

See? Pwned.

Nice, non-cliquish Mike Billings of the San Francisco Examiner has the deets.

And famous area photographer Jim M. Goldstein of JMG Galleries was on the scene as well – here’s his gallery.

Look out for those landslides, InSetters!

“At 0839 hrs today, 2 boulders fell from a hill and landed on 2 unoccupied vehicles in a residential neighborhood. There were no reported injuries from this incident.

Quintara between Cragmont and 12th Avenue will remained closed until 24 hours after the rains have stopped. The 6 Parnassus bus line will continue a switch back at 14th Avenue and Noriega. DEM will monitor the situation until 24 hours after the rains have stopped.”

Who, Besides the New York Times, Says the Sunset District is Bleak? On a Clear Day, You Can See the Farallones

Or maybe it’s just the Outer Sunset, the Outset, that’s “bleak?”

The view from Golden Gate Heights, more or less, after rain clears. Basically, it’s the Inner Sunset

Sugarloaf is whiter, so it shows up better than Southeast Farallon proper.

That big underwater nuclear waste dump is just to left of Southeast Farallon, the Big Island. From Hunters Point with love:

But we haven’t dumped 55 gallon drums there since 1970, so that’s good, right?

Anyway, at least the air is clean…

Hilarious: Yahoo Maps Calls the Outer Sunset the “Outset” and the Inner Sunset, Wait for It, the “Inset”

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

Somebody at Yahoo! Local Maps must have a sense of humor ’cause they’re calling Inner Sunset the “Inset” and the Outer Sunset the “Outset.”

See?

At the outset, I’ll tell you that this image is not inset:

I don’t know, Inset is a pretty good thing to be called, I guess:

 “a place where something flows in

“Something” could be knowledge, or fog, stuff like that.

And Outset, that’s pretty good too:

 “a start; beginning

Like if you’re starting a cross-country journey, or moving into a halfway house, stuff like that.

So, good on you, Yahoo.

And they also have some other new / funny / inventive names in San Francisco proper, like North Panhandle and stuff, but there’s no East Panhandle (EaPA*) or South Panhandle (SoPA**). Yet.

(And what about InMond for the Inner Richmond and OuMond (OW-MOND) for the Outer Richmond? Maybe someday…)

Anyway, Inset and Outset: Learn It, Know It, Live It.

*I’ll cop to making this one up, but someday DMV Hollow Adjacent will get it’s own moniker.

** There are people who actually use this term. Srlsy.
