Yahoo, which runs the weather application for the Apple iPhone, has removed Jerusalem from the list of cities, and replaced it instead with both East Jerusalem and West Jerusalem.
Yes, Yahoo’s weather application has taken it upon itself to divide Jerusalem.
Users of the pre-installed iPhone application must now choose between West Jerusalem and East Jerusalem to get the weather for the city, following a change that went into effect over the weekend.
“It’s ridiculous,” one Israeli Canadian iPhone user told Shalom Life. “But they wanted to be recognized as a separate state, so in this way they are. It’s just unnecessary.”
As expected, the temperature information for both options is identical, as are the latitude and longitude coordinates.
