Boy, if you're going to apologize for your own Maps app, point out alternatives and at the same time disallow one of the very best on the grounds that it is from a competitor is silly and inconsistent. Why re-invent the wheel? While I actually like iOS Maps, I still would rather see Apple innovate on things like a 27" Retina display for a Thunderbolt display.

Cracks me up people don't see the big picture. Whether you like iOS maps or not, the point is that YOU, the one who shelled out $ for YOUR phone, should have the CHOICE of which map app you want to use. Apple should not have a right to block Google Maps because of some crap lawyers write up. Yet, sheepish Apple followers blindly defend this moronic unjust move.

Google should give us the app for jailbroken devices.

15 address combinations and No Such Location later, I give. Sigh, I love Apple, but it does NOT work over here AT ALL.

Posting from Asia. Just read this article then proceeded to search for the directions to my dinner location, which is a fairly well-known place (just far from where I live).

Idiots, Google didn't want to offer turn by turn direction to Apple but still want their half ass software on our premium phones. Screw them, Apple maps are better than most maps & GPS maps out there. I think it's a great first year product. I hate uninformed Google users, enjoy your soon to be virus infected phones.

First year product? I thought apple doesn't do "beta testing" on it's fanboys...oh that was when Mr. Apple, Steve Jobs was alive. Talk about half ass software! (Siri and maps)

The only thing the old maps lacked was navigation. Apart from that the new maps lacks a lot of details. Heck even Nokia maps has more details than it. Maps is all about details. What is the use of a map if you can't find stuff on it? On android maps and "old maps" on iOS, I can get all the buildings at my university and their names, Ohio State. Heck I won't even need the on campus maps. Try that with iOS maps. That's the problem with iOS fanboys, you are all willing to settle with half ass apps and phones just because they are from apple. Just look on the internet how many people can't wait for the iDevices to be jailbroken. Why, if the iPhone is that good already? Same thing with Mac books. Fanboys claim they hate PCs yet they $3000 bucks to get a mac and then end up running windows OS on a parallel desktop...lol

When is the USA DOJ going to pursue antitrust action against Apple? Refusing Google maps app would be a clear violation of antitrust.

What antitrust? Apple has less than 50% of smartphone market. And less than 5% of the overall mobile phone market. Where do you see a "trust" here?

Vote with your wallet. Instead of swearing at a company's self-interest, just buy something from a different company who supports your interests.

Yeah, you do that! Buy a very successful win8 phone! Or an Android junk that you can't eve upgrade after 6 months. Yeah, you do that because of the Maps app... Leave the rest of us with our awful Apple Maps. Self-interest? It's obvious you haven't run a business in your life... And Google is exactly the type of company that support your interest,right?
