No, actually there are always at least two choices in any situations. 0 or 1? Yes or No? Either you are with us or against us? And, in this half-baked map debacle, Apple's offer to either their users or Google is: Our way or the highway?    I am not sure how many Apple's users will be turned off by this, perhaps not many, but the ones who are vocal about the map's shortcomings are probably the ones needing this feature the most. They might even start looking at...
  It beats Sammy's "slavish" reworking of the original design I would say... If you google images with "clock" as a keyword, you will see literally thousands of possible 2D & 3D's clock shapes, and Apple, as it always proudly says, will come up with the thousands-1st unique design. This is apparently that "unique" design. Apple might even go with the "square with rounded corners" inspired clock altogether..., but no.., Apple has to go this "slavishly"...
  I think you're using a rather confusing and flawed logic. How can you be "inspired by" something that didn't exist or rather just being released barely some days ago, like Iphone5? Are you suggesting that Android's phone manufacturers live in a higher dimension, so that they can just time-travel whenever they like to steal Apple's future ideas?    I don't even dare mentioning your liberal use of multipliers such as 8X and 4X which doesn't make any sense at all, unless,...
Aren't you tired looking at those icons Tallest? I've been  with Windows 3.1 using the icons claimed to be copied out of Mac's "look and feel". I had extensively  used OS/2 in the 1990's,  a vastly better OS than both Windows and Mac OS combined as it already had a built in Preemptive multitasking more than a decade before Windows iterations and Mac iterations [OSX is when it is fully preemptive]. It rarely crashes in comparison to Windows 3.1 or even Mac OS. Albeit, due...
I guess this time Apple will let several options open for you. If you are not willing to wait  more than just a couple of days, you can revert back your Igadget to IOS 5.x, buy a GPS device or buy an Android device. But, if you're willing to wait about one month, you can make a deal with the "devil", i.e. to buy the new WP8 phone Nokia Lumia 920 with its superb worldwide map and navigation system [even without any cellular data connection], IMO besting even Google's...
FYI, Watson doesn't have voice/speech recognition technology built in. In the Jeopardy! exhibition contest, someone was typing the clues to Watson, After all the clues were completely sent to Watson, then, via electronically controlled switch, any contestants will be able to press the button to answer but not before. It is actually a disadvantage for human competitors as many of Jeopardy! champions often times can figure out their answers before Alex Trebek even finishes...
Watson is an AI flavored "natural language parser" . As such, the more terse the question you give it, the more possibility it screws up the answer, or perhaps it will just have no clues how to answer it correctly. Let's talk hypothetically about another imaginary Jeopardy! contest. One of Jeopardy! categories during this contest was "A Weapon of War". Now, supposed one of the clues in the category was "Pineapple". we can be 99% sure that Watson will have a hard time to...
We've got a winner. What a great job Apple!! You now have millions, intended or unintended- more of the of latter actually..., of beta users of your half-baked crappy map application. Only a company with tens of billion of dollars cold hard cash in the bank can do this because it just can afford major screw up like this. And, the funky thing is legions of Apple apologists, lemmings and fanbois seem to be ready to defend Apple's ineptitude at any costs. They are doing...
You must not pass your basic arithmetic class. In common cases: You pay USD200 to get your phone from the big telcos. You sign a two year contract. Let's just say every month you pay a minimum of USD75 for the very basic voice/data plan [actually the USD40 was used to pay up your phone and the remainder is for actual call/data rate you pay permonth to the telco, about USD35]. You can now use your basic arithmetic skill, or if you have none, I will do it for you:    USD...
Well, million of Americans seem to have disagreed with you. They apparently can't afford to pay for the Iphone with hard cold cash, unlike those chinese, other affluent asian buyers and buyers from other continents who genuinely can pay for Iphones at any price. So,  in droves they'd gone these American Iphone buyers signing their two year contracts to pay up their Iphone purchases, in essence becoming the big telco's cash cow.
