The data is nice to have again, but the interface blows. I'll stick to Apple Maps. The only thing I ever really missed was StreetView and like many others, if I need it, I'll go there for that one time.
This has to be the funniest thing I've read in a long time. I mean, seeing homeless people makes me sick with sadness, seeing people living in squalor, reading about pedophiles and watching FOX News makes me sick. But looking at an icon on the iPhone? Dude, get a life, either that or get an Android phone.
I was just going to say that. Microsoft is figuratively skating to where the puck has been, not to where it will be. Apple is about to kick it in another gear with the release of the Mini. I say it will take all of the oxygen out of Microsoft's fire (well, except for the typical Microsoft fans who are just as rabid as us fanboys.)
But, but, but . . . Apple Maps suuuucccks . . . and, and, and, nobody's supposed to buy the iPhone or upgrade iOS because, because, because . . . Apple Maps suuuccks!
. . . and, and, and, nobody's going to want to spend money for a new cable or adapter, and, and, and, MOMMMMYYY!!!!
It sounds like you're getting the idea you're in the wrong place. This forum is called APPLEInsider. Not Ars or CNET. We are Apple fans here, for the most part. You're going to get blasted for bringing your pro-Fandroid, Anti-Apple blather. It's the Apple 'hood, don't you know?
Please, please, please people, resist the urge to respond to the trolls to "one up" them. Every response is another yank away from the greatness and awesomeness that was and is Steve Jobs.
Ignore the fools and instead comment on what "insanely great" products Steve brought us. Comment on how they may have changed your lives. Tell us what you thought when he held up iPhone and iPad and introduced them to the world.
I cut my teeth on a Macintosh Plus...
Isaacson captured Steve's toying with the idea of "Macintosh in a book" in the bio. Not sure why its a big deal now.
I'm not sure "predict" is the right term. Steve clearly had the ideas in his head for such products. He had to wait for technology to catch up to his vision.
