Why is it that people have some kind of perverse need to see a person (or company) rise up, against the odds, the once they are considered the top of their field, the same people take delight in pointing out every flaw, no matter how minor, in an almost venomous attack? After hearing all of the hubbub on the internet about how bad the Apple maps are, I wanted to chime in and put in my two cents.
I on the other hand, am an optimist when it comes to software. Every software company releases the first iteration that is missing some feature that you think “it would be great if it could do this or that”. Instead of thinking “This is the first try and it will be better in the next evolution.”
As far as Maps go, I have to admit, I really don’t use my iPhone as a GPS or any of the “heavy duty” map tools, so it’s really hard for me to be a map snob. So I think for the first try it is acceptable, and the next revision will be better.
What do you think? Let me know in the comments.
