    Btw, I'm using Apple Map every day and find no problem. Can't wait for Map on OSX.



     


    I guess it's no surprise, considering the author who has "A decade of experience in technical consulting or employment in information technology, recognized by the University of California to be equivalent to a Master’s Degree in Computer Science."

    Mmm...


     


    I have 5+ decades in technical consulting and information technology (1956-present) -- What's my equivalent UC degree?


     


    'Course back then we didn't have IT  (it was called DP  for Data Processing) nor Computer Science (it didn't exist *)... but we muddled through...


     


     


    That said, while technical qualifications help -- they are no substitute for objectivity and journalistic integrity! 


     


     


     


    * My initial training was a night class at Pasadena City College taught by the DP director Howard Laddish -- who spent days discussing the 80 "col-yum"  punched card. Here's the predominate DP machine of that era: The IBM 402 Accounting Machine and Summary Punch.

    There's simply no substitute to your experienced and informative posts here at AI. For that, I thank you.

    Funny thing is there is no such school as the University of California. That is just the governmental administration. All undergraduate and graduate degree programs are awarded by one of the 10 UC schools such as UCI or UCLA, etc. Furthermore, and especially on a resume, in the UC System, one does not refer to a degree as a Master's or a Bachelor's and certainly not with an apostrophe. It would be a Master of Science in Computer Science or M.S. in Computer Science.

    One could even say that the [resume] Author's work was Poorly Researched and Roughly Drafted!   


     


    BTW, I'd pick UC Davis.... Paarrrrttttyyyy!


     


    Second coice would be University of Custer, South Dakota -- responsible for the famous UCSD Pee System!

    Just off the top of my head:


    faster loading,


    better caching,


    fly by,


    better looking and more usable maps,


    better approach to turn by turn directions,


    basically nearly everything about the the UX and usability.


     


    Almost every valid complaint about iMaps has to do with detail and maturity, not function and underlying structure. The thing is, iMap's deficits are are rapidly disappearing, but by comparison, underlying structural, function and usability deficits . . .  are forever. Apple tends to get structure right early on whereas google tends to never break away from their many underlying structural problems.

    Steve would say anything to make a convenient point.


    He must not have had any nephews or nieces around to remind him how wrong he is. He should have consulted J. K. Rowling on this.

    It's is interesting, even if there are plausible explanations.

    Here's one: that's not live. image I don't know that people change it very often, either.


     


    And it certainly doesn't have to be right (though if you're a spambot and you say you're in Arizona but your IP reports Philippines, you're gone). I'd love to live at the spaceport at GEO, but that's just not happening.

    Some the the claims are not true here. Google's SDK can also do it. Check out the app named PaperMap with Markers. It allows users to do drawings of various colors, width and transparencies and place and move POIs on google map. it also rotates as the direction changes when GPS navigation starts. it was first released in 2009. One of the powerful GPS maps available in app store.
