    Yes, good point, all those turtle necked wallies wandering around like zombies chanting 'My iPhone says the restaurant is here, so it must be.'

    They lost their marbles, they lost their money, now they lose their way.
    Apple is obviously designed for a certain class of people, and man does it delight in getting them.

    In Apple's favour, GPS is obviously a flawed system. I've lost my GPS.

    Apple Scraps Google Maps, Puts Its Interests Ahead of Customers
    http://finance.yahoo.com/blogs/daily...160036509.html

    http://www.forbes.com/sites/conniegu...rtner=yahootix

    “The classic criticism that thoughtless Apple haters use against the company is that it makes products that are pretty but dumb. Usually those criticisms are by people who don’t understand the value of a comprehensible user experience, frustrated by the reality that many people will eagerly trade the open-ended technologies of competitors for the simple and satisfying experience that Apple provides,” says blogger Anil Dash in a scathing takedown. “But this time, they’re right: Apple’s made a new product that actually is pretty but dumb. Worse, they’ve used their platform dominance to privilege their own app over a competitor’s offering, even though it’s a worse experience for users. This is the new Maps in iOS 6.”

    London Underground Mocks Apple’s New Maps App In iOS 6 [Humor]
    http://www.cultofmac.com/today/#CmMamcWCmR89lGft.99

    There’s an awesome image flying around Twitter this morning that shows someone working for the London Underground has a great sense of humor. On one of the many signs littered around London’s tube stations, someone has written:


    For the benefit of passengers using Apple iOS 6, local area maps are available from the booking office.

    Apple’s new Maps app has taken a lot of stick since its debut in iOS 6 on Wednesday, and users have been flocking to Twitter to post images of towns and villages that have seemingly been wiped out by the Cupertino company.

    The Telegraph uncovers more iOS 6 snafus

    HERE

    Now I've got Nokia Drive on my Lumia 800 sorted out, it doesn't seem that bad after all ...

    BTW for anybody interested, for maps produced by Navteq, they have a facility to request corrections

    NAVTEQ

    Like I've pointed out to them the speed limit along the Ellerslie-Panmure Hwy shows as 60kph, not 50kph. Including the bit where the speed camera opposite the Shell station can trap the unwary. I don't know yet how long it'll take them to action that.
