Google Maps Humiliates Valletta
The Register discovered that Google Maps doesn't know the location of Valletta, the capital of Malta. Google shows the location of the historic fortress city, in the Mediterranean Sea. Google Earth doesn't know the exact location either. Maybe Google Maps should have a collaborative tool to let the users report errors on the map.
On a brighter note, Google Maps improves zoom.
* Explanation for the title: the official name the Order of Saint John gave to the city was Humilissima Civitas Valletta - a city bound to humility. (from Wikipedia)
