Thank you comment police.It wasn't enough for one person to tell me I was wrong... you also felt the need correct me.A full day later too. Congrats.
I am amazed that you even bothered to make a comment like that.Look... I stopped reading the article when they went into describing what iBeacon is... because I already knew that. Sorry.Had I read a little but further... I would have found my answer. But Foad answered my question anyway... without the condescending tone.Forgive me for causing you to take time out of your busy schedule to point out my mistake. You can now go back to whatever it is you do here... hopefully...
If this is Apple's first dedicated iBeacon-compatible beacon hardware... what hardware are they using in Apple Stores right now?
I wonder where they got that data from?Did you move your business from one address to another? Or is it listed somewhere completely wrong? Maybe they have old data that hasn't been updated... but what is that data?I want to know where Apple and Google gets these addresses in the first place. If we knew that, we'd at least have a place to start making corrections.No one seems to know where they get this data from... yet all the POI data is dependent upon it.Apple used to...
Gotcha... that makes sense. They need to get on with it then! I can see that working for small businesses... but what about large chains?Would Apple's search engine have to scrape McDonalds.com or Subway.com to get the addresses of all their restaurants? Or the hundreds of other restaurants and stores with one website but many locations?
Would the Apple search engine help this maps/POI problem? Or are you talking about a search engine in general to get away from Google?For POI data... the information has to be somewhere online for Apple's search engine to crawl.But I'm getting the impression from this thread that there is NOT an online location where all this POI data exists.If there was... why couldn't Apple just licence that data instead of building a search engine to crawl the web?I agree that Apple...
Lol... that was me... up late and tired suggesting silly things like the Department of Transportation and Tax Records. Sorry My point was... it there not one place that already has this information?Where did Google get it?I know Google has cars taking pictures of nearly every road in the world. Do they have more people knocking on every business door asking for their information?Or is it because of something like Google Places where it's up to the business owner to...
Hey guys... birds fly up and down.Maybe the bird is swooping down to catch some prey... swiftly.
Agreed. Apple has to do something to bolster their POI data.Maps are relatively easy. Most roads have been around for decades... but even newer roads are listed somewhere. Every state has a department of transportation... so they should know the status of every road. I would imagine other countries have similar departments.POI data is a little more challenging. But hell... can't they use data from YellowPages.com or something?Is there not one place that has the names,...
Ok... it sounded like you thought Apple was one of the companies who wastes money and won't stay wealthy because of it.Glad we're on the same page then
