By Millions. There are too many useful features missing and unnecessary complexities in Pages and Numbers. Also when you are sending documents or spreadsheets to someone else, you want to be sure that it will retain formatting and fuctionality. Only MS Office can guarantee that.
It certainly looks good that Apple is taking positive steps to correct Maps. However, Apple needs to understand that Maps was, still is, and will be a crowdsourced development. Having the largest number of most talented engineers working on Maps will NOT outwight the value of millions ordinary people who continuously add/correct Maps data.   Many people rightly pointed out that Google Maps was no better than Apple Maps in the begining. In fact it was in most ways much...
I manage the device business of a large carrier. Last month the leading handset seller in our country decided to quit selling Tablets as sales is low and their brand is suffering as a consequence of poor customer experience. Other vendors are also very cautious about bringing in Tablets as their initial Tablet experiements failed miserably. Initially some sales were made but these white box Tablets quickly started gathering dust or thrown away (yes, they are so awefull)...
The article is not the first one on these so called "Market Research" companies. You can guess the level of incompetency when you read the article here (http://www.zdnet.com/why-does-the-it-industry-continue-to-listen-to-gartner-7000001394/).   Some light moments from the article -     "To recap: In early 2009, Gartner projects “sharpest unit decline in history.” At the end of the year, it reports “strongest growth rate in seven years.” And you wonder why I put...

1. Google buying Motorola was a brilliant move as the extra cost helps them reduce their Tax liability. Saving a couple hundred millions by spending 12b is indeed a smart move.   2. Although Motorola was acquired by Google, it continue as a separate entity and Google do not have any saying in Moto's operational or strategic decisions. Moto can and do anything and Google have no liability and responsibility whatsoever. Any stupid and evil deeds before or after the...
  You wanted a fair, reasable, unbiased review on an Apple related news from Engadget?   Verge and ARS Technica is better but lately they are also re-printing press releases from stupids like Strategy ANALytics without checking facts. Fact checking or thinking or original report is a thing of past. Except for AI and a handful of sites.
  This holds true for some time but now it looks like an excuse. By the same logic, when Google Maps will be 28 years old, Apple maps will be only 20 years old. Will  you accept an inferior Maps from Apple then?   iPhone was a winner from the word go, iPad was a winner from day one. Yes, Apple Maps needs time to improve but it should have been labeled a "Beta" rather than presented as a finished product.
  Except that Google could have cited figures from their own sales and activation data. Nexus is a Google Product and they should have exact sales data. Rather you choose to cite a research data!   It's like asking 10 persons about your weight and then average it to get your wight when just standing on the weight machine would have given you the fact.   But, Google was not looking for fact here, they wanted a favorable figure, wasn't they?
With all those 3D views, if you are not living in the US or other prominent parts of the world, you will find Google Maps is far better. Apple Maps have so many errors that it is unusable in my city. Places are wrongly labeled, names are misspelled, POIs are misplaced. Google, on the other hand, is 90% of the time accurate.   Yes, Apple started almost a decade after Google but can Apple afford a decade to catch up? I think not. They need to eliminate these kind of...
