    Ah, Google Maps. More than ever people are using the service to get them where they need to go. However, I probably wouldn't use the service if I was en route to Moscow.

    I was poking around CNN.com and found a link to Fortune's list of the World's 500 Largest Companies. I began reading through the list when I noticed there was another link which showed you, on Google Maps, where the headquarters of these companies are located. It was then that I discovered that Moscow isn't as far away as previously thought...

    If you zoom in you notice that the town name is Moscow, the country is missing, thus the error. Data error, not Google error it seems.
