Google Says Taiwan is Now Taiwan Not Taiwan, Province of China

Via Inside Google word in a San Jose Mercury Story that Google is labelling Taiwan as Taiwan on Google Maps and no longer: Taiwan, Province of China. This story arose a few days ago when Google said calling Taiwan, Province of China is consistent with international naming conventions. Well, that less than a week ago and now Google spokesperson, Debbie Frost, says, “The recent Google change is broader than just a fix on the Taiwan map. It’s an overall update of the service’s “user interface,” or what Web users see on-screen when they view any part of Google Maps.” Now that’s good timing.
