Pretty sure I'm not talking about apps.
Pretty sure I mentioned the iPhone 4S specifically, and you even quoted it. You're a terrible troll, but I'll feed you until you go back under your bridge, because annoying trolls is entertaining to me.
There are plenty of them all over the Internet. Take this one for an example. Same thing happens where I live, a search for my own street returns nothing despite the fact that it is correctly charted on the map and dropping a pin shows the correct address. For obvious reasons, I will not reveal my location.
You're ignorant or trolling if you say this was a political move on the part of Apple. As has been said a thousand times, and previously to your post in this same thread, Google's license agreement prevented Apple from getting needed features like turn-by-turn. The only solution was to create a new maps application.
Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't know Apple was so poor they couldn't afford to actually pay Google for extra Maps services while at the same time being able to afford paying lots of third parties to offer a clearly subpar service...
Yes, but searching for a street name that's right outside my window complete with city and country name copy-pasted from the address returned by a dropped pin isn't one of them. The ignorance is yours; just because you are not aware of these issues it does not mean they don't exist. Generalizations from particular experiences are fallacious.
Is there any logical reason for me to actually care unless I was being unnecessarily apologetic like you?
Perhaps because you're pulling a straw man fallacy that doesn't make sense?
