Google removed the graphic showing the Android robot peeing on an Apple Logo near the town of Rawalpindi in Pakistan.
Just as the Apple Watch launches an offending graphic for Apple fans has been spotted on Google Maps. Hours after the graphics was spotted Google has removed the graphic shown near the Pakistani town Rawalpindi. A giant Android Robot was shown peeikng on a small Apple logo. Google QA failed apparently big time here or the company deliberately is letting this go on. Is this a forgotten April Fool's joke? In any case the media coverage got Google to remove the graphic.

The Apple dissing graphic has been reported first about by Team Android. The graphic was in plain sight when viewing the area near Rawalpindi. The graphic is not a representation of something that exists for real in Pakistan. In satellite view the Peeing Android robot was not visible.
The question is if Google officially knowns about this or if is this an act of Apple shaming from a single individual working on maps? Why is the offending, albeit not very mature image located in Pakistan? It would have been funnier to place it in Cupertino.
The story broke early today. It took Google a couple hours to remove it.
The rivalry between Android and Apple users is still strong, but graphics like that are not really taking things to the next level. We found Samsung's parody ads from a couple of years ago extremely funny and very stingy.
