I am not aware of Here data being in a 'Cloud'.  On a Nokia phone you download maps for countries of interest to your phone.  The data is stored locally on your device.  I have never heard of Apple Maps using third party data sets.  Where did you get that from?
This idea pongs.
I have never liked or used iPhoto precisely because I found the whole database idea to be both stupid and a pain.  Thank goodness iTunes was never saddled with this nonsense.  I was rather hoping Photos wouldn't follow the same paradigm.
'Apple is complying with the letter of the law and paying every cent of tax they owe.  It's stupid useless and corrupt governments that are to blame for not doing something about the loopholes.'   The Australian government changes the law and closes the loophole.   'The greedy pack of useless vultures... Apple should pull out of the country...  How dare they...'   Can't win. 
The last time the US government gave multinationals a tax holiday to get them to repatriate money, they did not use the money to increase investment or US based employment. http://www.nber.org/papers/w15023http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2013/10/impact-of-repatriation-holiday-on-the-economy-jobs-and-investment#_ftn7
 Ah, the 'Irish" penchant for hiding unpleasant truths and not tackling them head-on.  Sweep it under the carpet, smile, and pretend it's not there. Traveller halting sites in all their pristine glory:  https://www.google.ie/search?site=imghp&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1219&bih=695&q=traveller+site+rubbish&oq=traveller+site+rubbish&gs_l=img.3...1989.13720.0.14087.
The income Apple derives from Australia is about to take a large hit, and rightly so.  The Australian government is taking action against companies that divert their profits offshore to low tax countries like Ireland.  Loophole closed.: http://www.bbc.com/news/business-32687822
They used to also be called gypsies or tinkers.  I am not sure if there was any past connection to Romany gypsies.  A traveller halting site is usually easily recognisable by it's visual similarity to a rubbish dump.
I have the background, thanks.  Relic is a tech gourmand and has her reasons for being interested in a wide variety of products from multiple different manufactureers.  She has an open and enquiring mind and is not saddled with the technology equivalent of racism, which a good many of the regular posters here seem to suffer from. You are the one who is clearly over-sensitive.  Being upset at someone because they think highly of an electronic gadget that you don't is pretty...
