Apple is using every loophole and trick known to Wall Street and leveraging offshore accounts to "pay every dollar they owe" which is very little.  They used loopholes to pay dividends.   Now, I'm all for business and pro-business but this Apple corporate tax dodging highlights a big problem where average working people like me pay the most into the system   http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/17/apple-corporate-income-tax-rate_n_1429955.html
Apple is slipping at the moment - getting complacent with its success. It's UI has not fundamentally changed much since 2007. iPhone 5 was not much more than a stretched out 4s Samsung will most likely sell more S4 than iPhone.
One more thing - seriously, flyover in Modesto and Stockton? Really? What's next? Flyover in Gary, Indiana? Compton, CA? Queens, NY? a garbage dump? LOL
Who cares about flyover when the underlying data from Tom Tom is still crap
That's mostly because it is a WebApp and not native.
It's very good for a Web app (HTML5). Looking forward to a native iOS client which will have a nice UI, faster and support more features. I like the public transportation option
  All maps are pretty much worthless as Japanese government restricts the export and use of its geo-information. All maps suck there except OSM maps which are created by Japanese citizens.  So, to be fair to Apple, and Google, and Nokia/Navteq, they all lack.   Why, do you live in Japan?  Is that why it keeps you from updating your iPhone.  If you do live in Japan, you do realize that Google Maps in Japan is also not too good either for same reason.
I completely agree - Apple Maps, often incorrect data especially outside US, no street view, no public transport, no turn by turn, no mobile offline support, closed ecosystem wall garden, no web api's
If you were Samsung, wouldn't you raise your prices 20% after Apple sued them for violating patents - some of them a little egregious And Apple is looking at moving production to TSMC.   I would do this if I were Samsung
Agreed but Maps and Siri were the last straws - there were many other issues for his outing.  Ive is taking over.   Regarding Bing, my understanding is that they migrating and that Nokia location platform is powering Bing Maps on mobile and soon on Web.
