You can't fault the man for using the finer things in life.
The best part of Google Maps on iOS is that I won't have to hear the tech pundits whine about the lack of Google maps on iOS. I'm definitely not grooving with the 2x version on the iPad and with the exception of playing with Street View on a rare occasion, I don't see much reason to use this app over the native Apple map, and Waze is much more useful for navigation.
Apple is Doomed!
There's numerous reasons for the failure of this venture but the primary reason is Robert Murdoch.
These outages with iMessage and Facetime are almost routine now. I remember when people were bashing RIM when they suffered a rash of BBM outages; people were touting iPhones as an alternative. Hmm, I realize it's a bit of Apples to Oranges but Apple can't run a cloud service to save it's life.
It's interesting that some tech pundits are thinking that Apple is hiding the iPad mini sales by announcing combined figures. I'd guess it was the opposite and there's probably very tepid interest in the iPad 4.
In addition to jettisoning Forstall and Browett, Cook should quickly remove Bruce Sewell and get a more diplomatic legal chief and dispense with the arrogance and foolish behavior that has resulted in stalemates, losses, and a very poor / embarrassing pubic image.  They did get the major jury victory against Samsung but that was despite themselves.  Down the road, they are almost certainly in for some serious spankings unless they replace Mr. Sewell and take a more...
With the embarrassment and the latest debacle in Mexico over the 'iFone', Mr. Cook should start looking for a new General Counsel. Mr Sewell's legal record for Apple is on balance strongly in the negative.
With the open and free Google mindset, we should decry the railroad's claim; do they think they own a patent on rounded clocks?
  Actually they had a limited amount of time with a prototype that Nokia gave them and failed to do or publish a complete comparison test that showed photos from the full range of lighting conditions.  Of course no comparison can be done with off-the-shelf devices since the Lumia 920 isn't for sale yet.
