Google Maps API Goes Paid May 05, 2018, 01:40:31 PM If you use their API for one of those Google Map insets on your website, I guess it's now on a pay-as-you-go system. Doesn't much bother me, but is interesting for a few reasons, at least to me.1. I was somehow put in charge of updating/maintaining the company site for the shop that shit-canned me around Christmas in 2016 and as part of that, I added the Google Map to our Contact page, using my own Gmail address for reasons I can't recall.2. I have no intention of exploring what happens to said website when I don't sign up for this new paid system.See, they have nobody that I'm aware of to update or troubleshoot the site when stuff like this starts breaking. Hell, somebody I'm still friendly with there asked me who has admin rights to their faceThing page to update it. Not me!! I removed myself from all that crap days after they cut ties so - good fuckin' luck!
