Tumblr’s back up and Google Maps for iOS is out. Looks like your night just got slightly more exciting. (Though the new phoenix-like Flickr app should keep you busy, too.)

Apple has been under fire since last week’s launch of iOS 6 and its new, in-house Maps app — and now Apple’s CEO Tim Cook has published an open letter in which he admits that the new app “fell short” of the company’s high standards.

Holy. Crap. Wow.

An Apple executive • Speaking to David Pogue about the technical failings of its maps app, which have been well-documented elsewhere. Pogue has a way with words in his review of the program: “So Apple has written a beautiful, well-designed app — and fed it questionable data,” he says. “It’s as though you just got a $1,500 professional coffee maker and then poured moldy beans into it.” Ouch.

"We believe Google Maps are the most comprehensive, accurate and easy-to-use maps in the world. Our goal is to make Google Maps available to everyone who wants to use it, regardless of device, browser, or operating system."
