  If I leave a window open and you climb inside and nick my stuff, that is still burglary - even if I left the window open.   What Google did was break the trust of their users.   Unforgivable
    Well, that's what the report said, if you have anything to refute it, aside from guesswork, then please share.     Which makes not a lot of difference. Apple was using data from a third party provider with an ambiguous town marking.       Accurate? Maybe. Unambiguous? No. The app will only be ever as good as the data you give it.
