Because if you type in exactly what they said ("315 E 15th in Manhattan"), it takes you to the "right" place.
Because it's using a non existent address giving off a false perception that the Apple maps is inferior, when in reality, using that same example, it's the MOTO device with Google Maps that is inferior. It's sending you to a non existent address.
Imagine you fat finger an address, or someone mistakenly gives you a wrong address (or you simply wrote it down wrong). lets say you are going to 1315 e 15th, or 315 e 115th... wouldn't you want your mapping software to correct you BEFORE you venture off so you can confirm the address, or just set you off driving to find yourself in front of a park?
That's a good point, as well. So Apple's Maps is the only one that's correct. Everyone else is sending you to a non-existent address (and Google is actually bragging about sending you on a wild goose chase. Go figure). (which is why I put 'right' in quotes).
Read the article that started this thread. Now, look at the third paragraph. Here, I'll quote it for you:
If you type in exactly what they said (315 E 15th in Manhattan) it takes you to the "right" address.
What evidence? How about the blank cities around the world? How about the POI database that's only a fraction of the size of Google's? With regards to the amount of data Google stores for maps I can't find a number more recent than early 2006, but at that time they had 70 TB of data. I can only imagine that it has ballooned to petabytes by now. Nothing you say will make me believe that any of the companies whose data Apple is borrowing have such a vast database.
Sorry, but none of that is evidence. Google Maps has mistakes, too. So where is the evidence that Apple Maps has more?
You really think that Google paid someone for months just to look through a database to find missing entries? First of all, that takes minutes if not seconds as long you're leveraging the power of the computer that stores the database instead of doing it manually. Second, no company in their right mind would do that simply to make an internet-based ad.
You're right. No company in their right mind would do that simply to make an ad. But Google apparently did. How else do you think they came up with that address?
Another excellent point.
