  I agree.   With maps now, I tend to search with Google, bag the exact address, or even co-ordinates, then bung them into Apple Maps for directions.   I find the Maps app much better than Googles.  I only managed to get Google Maps to give me directions once, and I can't work out how I did it.  The Apple app is clean, easy to use etc.  It just has dreadful search capabilities.   I hope the search chap they hired from Amazon fixes that.
I think Apple need to start spreading rumors that they are working on something completely fictitious, just to send Google and Samsung off on a wild goose chase copying something that doesn't exist. The iSpaceShip perhaps?
  To be honest though, it's not like Apple Stores are perfect.  The service I get in my local one (which is only 10 miles from Infinite Loop) is dreadful.  There's actually far too many staff, milling around and paying little attention to customers.  I've experienced this in a couple of Apple stores.   That said, the one at Infinite Loop is tremendous.
  That fits almost perfectly with his new company disgracefully forcing small suppliers to reduce their prices by 4% regardless of whether or not they could afford to:   http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/retailandconsumer/9890005/Monsoon-accused-of-shameless-squeeze-on-supply-chain.html   How much of a shit was he before Apple made him kinder?
  Bigger screen, better for porn, more "relaxing in a gentlemens way", go blind.......!
  I actually think using a BT headset makes you look like a cock, especially if you're the type of person who wears one all the time, even when not on a call.  As a general rule, I believe in a headset in the car for safety purposes only.   I also suspect people wearing Google Glasses are going to be the champions of douchbaggery, though obviously I'll hold off my snide and unpleasant comments until I've actually seen them!
  Ha!   I remember the first time I saw one of the Galaxy S3's (a friend of mine who works for Google always seems to have the latest and greatest Android phone), being stunningly impressed with the screen and actually quite impressed with the device as a whole, then he received a call and I found myself feeling sorry for him.  It looked like it was a phone designed specifically for old people because they need bigger buttons!
The main problem with this phone, and its predecessor, is that when you use it as an actual phone (i.e. hold it against your head and talk to someone), you look like an absolute cock.
The thing that pisses me off about Googles actions here is that but for them (and the ever standards un-compliant Microsoft), this is an example of technology companies just being flat out sensible and understanding that standards are great, in certain areas.  MPEG group do a good job of corralling things in a way that allows consumers to benefit, but Google have to come along, pretending not to be evil, trying to control everything themselves.   Aside from that, one...
Totally backs up what I've found. Apple Maps give great directions and is a fantastic UI. Where it flops is it's search. Fix that, and I'll never touch Google Maps again.
