Nokia N9 with Meego was an all-swipe based UI with no home button....great device until Nokia went all-in with Microsoft WP and abandoned Meego.
You don't understand the complexity and effort it takes to build an up-to-date global digital map.  It would take $5B, 5,000+ people and 5+ years to build a full stack map.  Apple has been doing this for 5 years already. HERE is the only full stack *independent* navigation-grade mapping asset out there.  While it is a expensive operational cost center, it is a must have strategic asset for IOT, Connected Car and mobile ecosystems.   Or Apple can continue to build their...
Who cares.....lame lame marketing on Apple's part...paying celebrities to wear a watch they would normally never wear.
I agree with below statement about HERE Maps and the data and navigation quality globally.  Apple should buy HERE Maps - these assets don't come on the market everyday and the cost, time and effort to build a global map is enormous.  The strategic potential from connected cars, IoT, device ecosystem is enormous.   "I use Nokia HERE based navigation solutions and have found the quality of their data to be excellent in the several countries I have used it.  The data set is...
it better also support USB Type C which is becoming the defacto standard.  Not sure if it can drive this monitor but both Thunderbolt and USB-C need to co-exist in the short to mid-term.   Which begs the question - Will Thunderbolt suffer the same fate as Firewire?
Also there is HERE REST Places API and Geocoder as an alternative https://places.demo.api.here.com/places/
Marvin made a good point that USB-C would not be able a 4K display if his info is correct.  If that is the case, wouldn't a macbook pro also need a lightning port in addition to 1-2 USB-C ports? If USB-C can drive a 4K display, then I agree with you.
Well, I certainly hope that the next macbook pro has a lightening port unlike the new macbook.  There are some going points made above.  Will the two co-exist and have multiple ports in the near future - I hope so.
Good write-up, Damn-its-Hot,   I tried doing the HERE Maps turn-by-turn guidance using the downloaded "offline" maps in Amsterdam while riding a bike there! (I was using the Android version of the HERE app) it worked and better yet, I switched it to pedestrian mode (versus drive) so I would get a better bike versus car route.  I also downloaded the high-def female UK voice and worked flawlessly. I also saved my favorite places I wanted to visit so I could go to them...
Thunderbolted   So, Thunderbolt is essentially dead - it is the new proprietary firewire. USB-C is the new universal standard for all peripherals.   This means that macbook air and macbook pro and Mac Pro and iMac sans USB-C have been PWNED!  All macbook's will eventually be in the same form factor as the newly introduced MacBooks but with different spec.   This could spell trouble for mac product line sales until new refreshes come out supporting USB-C.  USB-C is a...
