Quiapo DVD on Google Maps




Not sure how Google moderates contributed entries (or POIs) on Google Maps but it looks like the strip of pirated DVD stores in Quiapo got thru.

This was shown to me earlier by Art Samaniego of MB on his HTC Magic.

I did the same search on my iPhone 3G and it’s also there.

  1. Hahaha.. Sikat talaga ung pirated DVD sa Quiapo.. Bat di nawawala yan jan.. Alam na alam ng OMB na marami sa Quiapo dba? Bat di nila inaatake yan?

    ^^

    Because they’re prolly too busy locating for the source.

    OR

    They pity the ones who sell them (because if they do catch these peddlers, they’re not big fish anyway)

    OR

    They’re patrons themselves (c’mon as if naman wala talagang kumukuha ng kahit isang kopya ng DVD na nasakote nila, di ba? ^___^)

    Nasa Elizondo Street ang maraming tindahan nito. Lagi nang na-reraid yan pero hanggang ngayon nandiyan parin. Mahirap na yatang mapigil yan hanggat maraming bumibili ng kanilang mga produkto.

    Nice one.

  7. hmmm… piracy is a very big problem not only here in the phils but worldwide.

    IMHO… pirated softwares are great for testing or patikim purposes only since some of the demo softwares lacks some awesome features.

    much better if you will feel the full software capability before buying one. ehem ehem! wahaha!

    It’s funny that the only people who does not “know” about Quiapo DVD are the people in govt and law enforcement. :-)

    Map data from google maps comes from google mapmaker contributors, If the place is in the correct spot and information provided is correct it will likely be added.

    Moderators are local experts they are ordinary google users like you and me who logs in to mapmaker.google.com all day, might be ur bored neighbor or wife haha…

    They are the one’s adding those places, streets, or buildings near the your area (e.g quiapo). Unsung heroes of Philippine geography, making our lazy asses lazier.

    There is an option in mapmaker w/c Area you choose to moderate (e.g again quiapo area), you can approve and mapmaker will gather your response together with other moderators who approved it.

    If more local experts on that area confirms the place, it gets published on mapmaker first then after further confirmation it goes to google maps.

    Mapmaker is map making in a collaborative way, our keyboard and mouse will shape what our map will be.

    its reality… what you see is what you get…

  15. Pink says:

    Is MCS DVD there? LOL

  16. Loy says:

    LOL. We’re now famous for video piracy, eh?

  17. Agentorenz says:

    Kung mura ang original dvd movie at software,walang bibili ng pirated.
    Protektado ang mamumuhunan pero ang consumers hindi, sa mataas na presyo.

  18. Andre Marcelo-Tanner says:

    better go for OpenStreetMap data, atleast thats can be edited out like wikipedia, maybe a google moderator owns a stall there?

  19. Ayus! Pwede bang izoom kung ano mga currently binebenta? :)

  20. gillbates says:

    Hi Yuga. Paano paganahin google maps sa HTC Magic from Smart? May kelangan ba i-install?

  21. gillbates says:

    BTW maliban na walang google maps, wala rin android market. tsk tsk

  22. Maktom says:

    If you have faster internet connection, no need to go to Quiapo, just click it and youre watching…

    hehehe.. Thats also a piracy.

  23. Maktom says:

    stricly speaking, if there is no piracy in the net do you think people will subscribe to the net?
    may be 10% of the current subscribers will remain.

    patron din ako ng QUIAPO DVD. in one of my trips there, i took a picture of some UNIFORMED POLICE OFFICERS na nagtitingin ng porn…
    i really wanted to send it to a TV news program but i didn’t. bakit ko naman gagawin yun? buti sana kung ung pulis lang ang paparusahan. THERAPY para sa akin ang maghanap ng movies quiapo.

  25. Chizmix.Com says:

    hope piracy can be lessen somehow. haay Pinoy.

  26. hehe.. nice catch! at least the location is accurate since that area really exists.. no sense in deleting that entry.

    It’s up to the Government to stop piracy by implementing the law and not just creating more laws…
