    Iran slams Google over nameless gulf

    Iran on Saturday criticised Google for leaving the body of water separating it from the Arabian peninsula nameless on its online map service, saying it would hurt the Internet giantís credibility.

    Why isn't important though? Google must up their game. Apart from iran i am sure people would like to know what that body of water is called.

    It's called education and perhaps you don't think it's important but it is.

    Is this Google's silent protest?

    Just had a look now and Google Earth carries both "Persian" and "Arabian" in their labelling of the Gulf.

    iran is a farsi.
    Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so

    I am all for blowing Iran back to the stone age (well, their government and it's big mouth) - sue me - but it is called the Persian Gulf and Google should fix it. But they should fix it for me, not for the silly Persians.
