I cannot believe that the vast amount of people that buy an iPhone buy it to use the Map app and there were people holding off purchasing one until Google maps hit iOS 6.
Google the new Borg?  
I am not the kind of person that likes hiking or camping in the wilderness but even I imagine that relying on an electrical powered device for directions is not a good idea. Having a compass has worked for hundreds of years and a good map or two is standard gear when going off on an adventure. Besides were would you charge you phone in a forest or desert?
I'm not sure there is money to be made building a tv screen when the prices for all but the super high end have been falling along with profit margins. I don't think Siri would work either since it barely works on an iPhone. I think the key is the delivery of content more the way iTunes pretty much eliminated the CD and stores that sold them.

I'm not so sure we need cuddly icons going ahead and J I could give Mac OS X a GUI fitting of the coming decade.
If it were clad in iron instead of aluminum it could have been called "Monitor 2".
I usually know where I am going but the maps apps are fun to play with. Apple decided they needed to make this move to their own map app but it may have been a mistake to release it at this time. I believe most iOS users feel like I do, not an important app.
Can we expect a jury made from a bunch of 18 year olds with zero life experience to decide cases? This jury passed the screening of plaintive and defendant.
