Best April Fool gag this year: in case you missed it, Google’s 8-bit version of Google Maps for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Visitors to maps.google. com could click on the button marked “Quest” to see the world in 8-bit. Wales looks a bit wild, and there’s nothing at all in Poland. Google claims it is also releasing Google Maps on an NES cartridge. Well, there have been ropier apps in the past couple of years.
