We own this; we manage the vendors. This is no one’s issue but ours.
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.

Apple not content with Samsung lawsuit, now wants permanent sales ban

  • $707M the amount Apple is asking for in a court order in the Apple/Samsung patent case (on top of the $1 billion already won), along with a permanent injunction covering “any of the infringing products or any other product with a feature or features not more than colorably different from any of the infringing feature or features in any of the Infringing Products.” Unfortunately, when they delivered it to court, they used these maps to get there. source

iOS 6 will probably be on more devices than iOS 5 by Monday

  • 15 percent of all eligible devices have iOS 6 installed only 24 hours after its release. When you include the flood of iPhone 5’s that will be activated with iOS 6 tomorrow, the numbers are only going to go up.
  • 20 percent of all eligible devices didn’t have iOS 5 installed until five days after the iOS update’s release. Clearly, native YouTube and Google Maps apps weren’t all that important to fans of Apple. source

Google’s shares now worth $25 more than Apple’s

  • $727.50 Per share when the market closed on Wednesday (September 19) which tops Apple’s $702.10. A portion of the credit is being given to the Nexus 7, which sold out quickly, though demand has tapered some since the initial buyers rush. Things are clearly looking up for the company though, at least according to Chief Business Officer Nikesh Arora. “The good news is, we’re seeing phenomenal growth in mobile queries across the board,” said Arora during a recent earnings call, adding, “Mobile is, right now, where search was in 1999.” source

BMW X-5 to Apple Store: I’m a PC

Footage has emerged from the Temecula, California Apple Store, that was burglarized last week, showing a 2003 BMW X-5 smashing its way through the store’s front gates. One suspect in the burglary, 22-year-old driver Equonne R. Howard, has been arrested, and police remain on the lookout for his accomplice. If only somebody told them that a MacBook Pro loses about 100 percent of its market value after it’s been run over. source
