Follow that kangaroo, mate

Siri, are vultures native to Australia? Apple continues to work the bugs out with its iPhone Maps navigation app. Most recently, police in the city of Mildura, Australia, say that several travelers looking for the city have instead been directed by their iPhones to a national park’s remote desert, accessible only by 4-wheel-drive vehicle.

Fortunately, iPhone users stranded in the desert can find all sorts of apps offering help in finding the nearest gas station 44 miles away, freeing cars stuck in sand and collecting the morning dew for drinking water.

Wait ‘til you get to the windmills on the 18th hole: The Australian PGA is pulling its championship tournament from the Palmer Coolum Resort because the course’s new owner has erected a 26-foot-tall mechanical T-Rex that moves and roars when golfers approach.

The tournament pulled out because along with the dinosaur being a distraction, golfers are directed by their iPhone caddy app to use a pitching wedge to hit the dinosaur in the eye.

Pass the salt, please: North Korea claims that it has launched a long-range rocket that placed a satellite in orbit.

Kim Jong Un, North Korea’s dear leader, announced five days of celebration for his country’s people, many of whom said they would celebrate the great accomplishment with a feast of moss and boiled shoe leather.
