Apple did bring these to the table.
They could have created any kind of map they wanted using the OSM data but for some unknown reason, they chose ye oldé pirate treasure map style, aaarrrggghhh, matey!

You don't need to shave if you're the undisputed *KING* of product design. You'll pull chicks left right and center no matter how you look like. Capiche?

I figure it's part of a misguided attempt to give the iPhoto maps a vintage look. No way is this intended for Apple's own mapping service. This is to make iPhoto more hip.

The fact that it's a total failure... e.g. fugly as hell... well Steve Jobs is gone, remember. He wouldn't have let this leave the company floor... he'd have fired some people...

This won't last long.

If you're going to rely on open source mapping, then you'll get what you pay for. Apologies to the open source communities but you guys just don't have the funding. My guess is this obviously is a stop-gay measure by Apple so they don't have to renew a contract when their so close to having their own ready.

Right. And. Steve is gone and I suspect this point will be common place sooner than later.

But they read the book AND they read AI regularly so how could they NOT know this?

And if you are going to be lazy and use two year old data and use your own format for the maps, it will be as good (or as crappy) as you (not the open source community) make it.

It will be more common place that people will make stupid comments about knowing what Steve would have done?
