All large US multinationals can avoid paying taxes on income derived overseas yet individual US taxpayers have to pay on worldwide income in BOTH US and Foreign countries. The fact is the US tax code need serious reform and to be simplified. I'm all pro-business and fiscally conservative and need to be competitive, but reform is needed and corporate tax rates need to be reduced. However, the burden of US tax revenue comes from workers like me with very few...
From the company that off shored billions (~10B) to avoid its tax liability to subsidized dividends for corporate shareholders, I find this 'lobbying' by Tim Cook completely disingenuous.     The pot called the kettle black .... 
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
