    lets start with maps and go down the list.

    My wife has had an iPhone since Jan 2008. Atleast once a year since, my wife has been brought to tears due to their shitty map program, or just about every other time she uses it. It has also created some pretty epic arguments and yelling matches between me and her before we finally used the GPS we had (2008, 2009) and my android phone (2010-current)

    Google Maps for iPhone did not offer turn by turn navigation. Google did not allow it on the iPhone, only on android devices. Should they have just sat ideally by while Google trampled all over them with turn by turn navigation? No. Of course not.

    That's crazy how off this GPS stuff can get.

    I still use the good old Delorme Maps :) Nothing beats these, after every trip I go back and highlight all the roads I've been on.
    I have like 15+ states

    Okay, so hackers (as far as I know) have never (okay, maybe once or twice) killed or hurt anybody through their hacking, but Apple actually pulls it off?

    So it's Apple's fault when someone dies from driving because they were watching a screen rather than watching what the should be watching which is the ROAD for christ sakes?

    Anyone here believe in Darwin's view of evolution?

    So what are we complaining about?

    Too many Apple fanboys as it is... so... survival of the fittest! ;)

    It might make a good reality show. Should I phone Simon Cowell, or will you? :roll:
