You made the assertion so it lies to you to provide proof.Or look at it this way:Steve Jobs killed Kennedy.Using your logic thus far, unless you're willing to provide proof that Jobs didn't kill Kennedy, then I can just keep stating that as fact. Yes that's incredibly stupid, but that's the logic you're using.Steve Jobs killed Kennedy.Steve Jobs killed Kennedy.Steve Jobs killed Kennedy.
  And yet a couple of weeks ago when there was the article about Google Chrome storing passwords in plain text which also required physical access to a logged in machine (much like this security flaw), the response around here was, "Holy Hell!!!! How can Google allow such a heinous flaw to exist!!!! Google sux!!!!"   Hypocritical much? 
Sorry to take the wind out of the sails of your idiotic rant but...Amazon isn't stopping Apple from bringing iTunes to the Kindle. Google isn't stopping Apple from bringing iTunes to Android. I bet both of them would advertise the crap out of it if Apple did. I could see the ad. "Now it's even easier to leave the iToys behind. iTunes is now available on the Amazon AppStore for Android."Kind of kills your whole rant. Sorry for the inconvenience of facts.
Good grief, the colors on those phones are hideous. They're not as bad as Zune Brown, but still hideous.
Do you even know what FUD means? Because it doesn't apply here.And if it's utter nonsense, please enlighten me to the software features that Apple has added to the Maps app since iOS 6 was released almost a year ago. I'll even take it a step further, what features has Apple added to ANY of the built in apps since last iOS release? Email? Music? Camera?
The article states:Oddly, that's the exact same behavior you get from Apple Maps when you put it in 3D/Flyover mode in an area that has no 3D data. Doesn't that make it just as much a "confusing distortion" in Apple Maps?I'm still not sold on the value of 3D when it comes to navigation. I actually prefer the 3d gray form buildings in Google Maps because a) they still provide a sense of building geography without the bandwidth overhead of full 3D models and b) Google had...
Do you really believe the nonsense you post? Apple doesn't avoid paying taxes? BS. Like any good corporation, Apple does everything it can to avoid paying taxes and maximize profits. Yes, they may "legally" be paying all the taxes they owe, but that's becaus there are such massive and ridiculous loopholes in the tax code for corporations to exploit.
You're actually comparing Apple retail stores to prisons, the CIA and government buildings?Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.Seriously, did you did actually type that with a straight face?
I see my comment about calling out the author making stuff up was deleted. The author states that the Android Facebook app was harvesting a user's entire phone book. He then links to an article he himself wrote that says the Facebook app was actually only transmitting the user's phone number. Granted, that's still not great but it's not the sensationalist "harvesting a user's entire phone book" claim stated in the article.   I shall henceforth accept everything...
So if this supposed to be a comparison of iOS 6 Maps vs. Google Maps 2.0, why are there screenshots from pre-2.0 Google Maps and iOS 7 Maps? Not to mention, the screenshot of Google Maps running in Safari? A big part seems to Google Street View vs. Apple Flyover (is that Apple's copyright-able term for 3D view?). I think they're both neat gimmicks, but for the map experience I feel Street View adds more value. First, there's the simple fact that Street View is available...
