Remember the Google Maps stickers spotted throughout the UK? They looked like the image on the right of this post.
Well, a while back, probably a year or so ago, I convinced Google to send me one. It never actually made it to my office. I didn't really think about it until now, when I spotted a Google Groups thread that has word from Google that the stickers are forever gone!
Google Maps representative, Jen, said:
I've been trying to track down these stickers for months for some other people in this group but sadly it looks like they've disappeared into the abyss of aged promotional materials. If we ever make more, I'll be sure to follow-up with you. I don't know if we're planning to do that though ever, so... :o(
Say it ain't so! Can those stickers become collector items? Did I miss out on my opportunity on receiving one of these collectables?
Maybe a neat tip for Google would be to start a map game, to find the missing Google Maps stickers. Or maybe not.
