Brushing up on my Chinese now...
 If it helps, we feel like second rate citizens using Apple Maps in the US, too.
I tried for months to get the location data for my kids' schools corrected.  They finally fixed one and deleted the other in the process.  I'll be interested to see if this fixes that.     Edit:  Nope.  Not only that, they've deleted another school in the process.
 I really hate that Apple's POI data is still so woefully inadequate, two and a half years later.  That, and bike directions and transit directions are still AWOL.  GSV is fine if you know an address and want to (for example) see what a building looks like, but its all-but-unusable to navigate a virtual walk down the block.  The click-reposition-click-reposition UI looks like it was designed circa 1997.  I tried to use it to find visual cues for an upcoming bike event, and...
All the bugs in 8.1.3 and 10.10.2 and we get new emojis.

 Yes, disappointing that a company that is, by any measure, a financial machine, has such buggy releases for OSX 10.10 and iOS 8. Hundreds of staff adds for a self-driving car (if AI is to be believed) but not enough staffing for a proper QA team? How is it even possible that the quality of their software isn't the second most important thing in the world, right behind the quality of their hardware?  SMH
   No signage in the front window, for the past couple of weeks now:  WTH?  Seriously, what other Apple Store has no window signage over Valentine's Day?  Who is running this store?  I wonder if Angela Ahrendts knows this is one of the faces of her Apple Stores...
 You're making the classic mistake of assuming people disappointed with Apple are automatically Samsung/Google fanboys. I don't "love" my Samsung store.  Excluding my work-provided Galaxy 4, I have one Samsung product in my entire house, a small TV probably 5 or more years old that does dual duty as a second TV and monitor for one of our Mac minis. And yes, as recently as this past weekend, the local Apple Store looked tired.  Busy, yes, but tired.
