Competition is good, and Apple is not perfect, so this is great for customers. The Google Maps app on the iPhone is 5x better now than it was prior to iOS 6, so there is a positive. Also Apple will have to work hard to win the customers back, again good.   Who said iOS isn't open? This shows a healthy and flourishing eco-system...
I cannot replicate this on my iPhone 5 running 6.0.1
  By not caring about resolution consistency, which Apple wants to.
Unfortunately, Apple is starting to earn a reputation of stinging 1st generation early adopters. The first iPhone had no 3G, despite virtually every other phone having this at the time, the first generation iPad had only 256MB of RAM, something that would be a significant issue with the release of iOS 4.0 later the same year. The iPad Mini's biggest appeal is you get into the iOS ecosystem at the lowest price possible so far. Mini2 will almost certainly get an A6 and...
  Well given it's available in more countries than ever, proximity to the holiday season and the fact that it was launched alongside the iPad 4th gen and quite soon after the iPhone 5, AND new Macs... people have to be choosy about where they spend their cash. I went for iPhone 5, as my 3Gs is getting a little long in the tooth, and my MBP and iPad 3rd gen are hardly ancient devices.
They've been lackluster.   http://www.cnn.com/2012/11/02/tech/mobile/apple-ipad-mini-sale/index.html?hpt=hp_c3
Anandtech actually gave it a very strong review, and I have to say, of all the review sites out there, I value their (and Arstechnica) reviews the most. They're certainly not biased and aren't just chasing clicks (like Gizmodo ot The Verge).   They also have some decent background on what MS intends Surface to be, which is interesting. Basically, it is not intended to be an iPad competitor in the way you might imagine, but really an extension of the PC.   I...
I'm still waiting for my iPhone 5... says estimated delivery date is Nov 4th. I can't wait and I am sure I'll love it, but Apple doesn't really need to make practical devices, like phones, so delicate. My 3 year old 3Gs is full of little dinks and scratches, that's what happens with devices you use daily.
Given the income Apple gets on an iPod is roughly half what it gets for an iPhone, it stands up pretty well. The iPod gets more of its 512mb of RAM dedicated to the apps, as there is no phone overhead. Same goes with the battery, with no 3G/LTE overhead, it doesn't need to be as strong. You get a lot for your cash, that's for sure.
Meanwhile, on topic...   As the mapping improves, I think it will get some converts - I quite like the look of the Apple maps (sure I am biased) and would use it in a browser when it's more mature. For now, I still use Google Maps.
