Oh, so a meaningless Street View complaint. I get it. Why shouldn't Google have waited until they had all the Street View data worldwide before adding Street View? We'd still be waiting for that, and would continue to wait for many, many more years.
Tallest Skill. You have to use some reason and fair judgement in your commentary sometimes. Even John Gruber, one of the biggest cheerleaders of Apple admits that the current iteration of Maps is a step back.
My problem with your comments, is that you defend Apple so much and for every little thing, that you don't come off as being someone that can be objective on matters. If someone says they have a problem or that Apple may have misstepped on an issue, you immediately do one of four things:
1) Say that there is no problem and that 99.99999% of people don't have a problem, or that the complaint is meaningless or baseless.
2) If there is a legitimate problem that someone has found; Apple has sold xxx million devices, so it isn't a problem.
3) Label the poster a troll that is trying to tarnish Apple's image
4) Deflect the issue and point to another company in a similar situation (warranted or unwarranted)
You're like Apple Insider's own personal Bill O'Reilly
Apple is allowed to mistakes. We are allowed to call Apple out on those mistakes. It's OK. The world will still turn tomorrow.
I love Apple, and we're an all-Apple household (two MacBook Airs, two iPhones with two iPhone 5s incoming, and an iPad), but just because I'm an Apple fan doesn't mean that I can't be objective when it comes to issues surrounding the company.
