True - it was only a matter of time.  I think we could look at this
positively though.  Hams have long been pioneers of technology, and indeed
with APRS it has been no exception.  Hams were text messaging via APRS long
before cell phones were available that had that capability.  And we've been
watching each other move across maps now for over 15 years (I think that's
right) - a feat only matched by the military for the longest time.
Remember, this cannot replace APRS!  It relies on the internet and Google's
server structure to remain intact.

Thanks for the link to the story!
