    No no the burmuta triangle got too hot and moved to the north pole so Santa is lost.

    I assume you can do this in Maps.app and not just Google Earth, considering they use the same images?

    It's just a weird effect from zooming in

    Since no one has said so, and I'm so bored I just downloaded the app and tried it... Zooming in on the north pole gives you an interesting colored-triangle-intersection effect that keeps changing colors as you zoom. Plus, the compass goes spaz and continuously spins.

    Great for those bored, nothing missed for those with more important things to do. The above shows which I fall under tonight. :p

    i did this, and besides having a really strange zoom effect, the iPad eventually runs out of ram.

    Nope. Looks a bit like what I imagine a smurf's bottom might look like, and the compass rose keeps spinning, but nothing else special.

    Kind of reminds me (and it's also kind of off-topic) of some Google Maps humor.

    Get directions in Google Maps from "China" to "Japan". Take particular note of direction #27 that lasts 782km.

    Yes, because a compass does spin at the north pole

    Actually it would point to the magnetic north pole which lies near the northern coast of Canada.

    Well, I did have a strange thing happen. I zoomed in and then did the two-finger pull to see if I could get a nice like-being-there panorama. However, while trying to move and tilt and stay at 90N, I somehow seemed to end up under water, but still being at over 11 thousand feet.

    Glurp.
