IN GOOGLE MAPS: Android pisses over Apple in Rawalpindi
LAHORE (Web Desk) - Rawalpindi is a vibrant Pakistani city known for its bazaars, ancient ruins, and array of religious shrines. But if you pay it a visit on Google Maps, you're going to notice something very unusual on the outskirts of the city — the Android "droid" mascot urinating on the Apple logo.

Here's a screenshot. And if you don't believe us, just click here and see for yourself.

The bizarre addition, which we first saw reported on by Cult of Android, was added using Google's map-editing MapMaker software, according to a spokesperson from the company. (Rather than as an overly-passionate Google employee, some initially speculated.)

Google's Android mobile operating system and Apple iOS are bitter rivals, vying for domination of the mobile space. It looks like one Google fan took it upon themselves to make clear exactly what they think of the Cupertino company.

This is definitely a deliberate addition, as there's no sign of it when you switch to satellite view:

Edits using MapMaker require review from users, but this piece of digital graffiti appears to have slipped through the net, and there's no indication as to how long it has been hiding on Google Maps. A Google spokesperson said that the company "is aware of the issue and working on getting it fixed."
