More Google

Tony (10:13:05 AM): another example of google ruling: http://www.boingboing.net/2005/07/19/guy_uses_google_maps.html

Guy uses Google Maps in court to beat traffic ticket
Heartwarming story of a clever lad named Edwin who beat a traffic ticket using Google Maps. The officer who issued the ticket told the judge that Edwin was driving down a one way street when he supposedly ran a red light. Edwin told the judge this wasn't correct -- it was a two-way street -- and pulled out his laptop, found a faint but usable WiFi connection, and loaded the Google Map page of the intersection where the alleged violation occurred. "The judge said that due to lack of memory of the officer she will have to dismiss the violation." (Of course, Edwin will now probably be locked away for stealing precious Internet resources by using the unsecured WiFi connection.
