Apple wins again: Much improved Google Maps iPhone app vindicates Cupertino’s strategy
Thursday, December 13, 2012 · 2:15 pm · 11 Comments

“Google’s much-anticipated iOS Maps application is out today and the early accounts are that it’s awesome,” Matthew Yglesias writes for Slate.

“I haven’t had time to play around with it properly, but I hope people will undrstand that if its as good as it sounds that’s really a vindication of Apple’s business strategy in launching its own Maps product,” Yglesias writes. “Recall that the problem with the old Maps wasn’t that it wasn’t as good as the new Maps. The problem is that it was distinctly inferior to Google Maps for Android. And that wasn’t a coincidence… While Google wants to promote Android, Google also doesn’t want to lose the vast customer base that is iPhone and iPad map users. So they’ve responded by writing a Google Maps program that’s much better than the old Google Maps—one that feature vector graphics and spoken directions and Google’s superior mapping data.”

Yglesias writes, “So pride aside, from Apple’s viewpoint this is a win. Apple’s not in the maps business, they’re in the device and platform business. Their problem as of a year ago is that their platform didn’t have a great maps program. Now it does. Mission accomplished.”

MacDailyNews Take: As we wrote upon release of the app earlier today, “Well, lookie here: All of a sudden Google Maps goes vector-based and gives iOS users turn-by-tun navigation and Street View.

Who says Apple’s Maps didn’t work?”

Ah Yes Apple wins again for Googles work?

Google won. They get data from users and will benefit and gain money. That money is used to invest in phones, tablets and OS and they are one of Apple's main competitors.

There was a reason why Apple made their map a default, even if they are not in the 'Mapping' game. I guess Google can say they are a search engine and not in the 'Phone' game.

Oh and Mac daily news is the source you use for everything. I can tell you must be a Floyd fan and go on Fight Hype for your source.

Carry on roller blading son, men have cars.

Apple Fires a Manager Over Its Misfire on Maps
By BRIAN X. CHEN and NICK WINGFIELD

8:51 p.m. | Updated

Apple has fired a manager who oversaw its mobile mapping service, continuing to clean house after a bad stumble.

Eddy Cue, senior vice president for Internet software and services at Apple, fired the manager, Richard Williamson, according to two people briefed on the matter who did not want to be named to avoid Apple's ire. The firing happened shortly before Thanksgiving, according to one of these people.

Trudy Muller, an Apple spokeswoman, declined to comment. Mr. Williamson did not respond to a message sent to him through the business networking site LinkedIn, which as of Tuesday evening still had a profile listing him as Apple's senior director of iOS platform services.

Apple had been using Google's mapping service in its mobile software, but in an update released in September it replaced Google's maps with its own. The new service added some features, like turn-by-turn directions and sharper graphics, but it was widely criticized over incorrect addresses, misplaced landmarks and misleading driving directions.

In a rare move, Timothy D. Cook, Apple's chief executive, publicly apologized for the deficiencies of the service and recommended that disappointed customers use mapping services from Apple's rivals while the company worked out the kinks.

Some early problems with the maps have been fixed. When providing directions for travel from San Francisco to Sausalito, Calif., Apple's maps used to say the trip required taking a ferry; now it shows a simple drive on the freeway. The Flatiron building in New York and the Washington Monument are no longer a block or two from their rightful homes. But some directions still lead drivers astray, and flaws in the 3-D imagery persist; for example, the London Eye still has no spokes.

The firing of Mr. Williamson, which was first reported by Bloomberg News, follows a management shake-up at Apple in late October, when Mr. Cook fired Scott Forstall, the former head of Apple's mobile software development. Mr. Cook made the change after months of simmering tensions between Mr. Forstall and other executives, which were exacerbated by the map problems.

As part of that shake-up, Mr. Cook gave Mr. Cue oversight of Apple Maps, along with Siri, the company's voice-activated assistant technology in the iPhone.

Apple prepared for years to shift to its own mapping system. It acquired three start-ups and formed a partnership with TomTom, a Dutch maker of navigation systems. Tony Costa, a Forrester analyst, said Apple's move was a necessary one, because iPhone owners were the most active users of mobile maps.

"To leave those people in Google's hands is just something Apple can't do," Mr. Costa said. "Their ability to control and evolve and innovate with maps was limited by their dependence on Google."

While they wait for Apple's maps to get better, some Apple customers have also been waiting for Google to release its own maps app for Apple devices. People working on the app say they are seeking to finish it by the end of the year.

Tyler Bell, a product director of Factual, a company that Apple has listed as one of its data providers for business listings, said mapping services had become extremely challenging to produce because smartphone owners demand more from maps than ever before.

Apple, or any company that provides maps, has to collect data from many different vendors and then stitch it together to overlay onto a map, he said. Often there are duplicate entries, or locations are labeled or placed differently depending on the vendor. Along with using computer algorithms to cobble together the data, human testers are needed to smooth things out.

"All these things need to be improved, and it's a never-ending problem," Mr. Bell said. He added that he felt Apple had the proper tools in place to quickly improve its database, like a system that allows users to report problems.

But Marc Prioleau, a managing director of Prioleau Advisors, which provides consulting services for mapping companies, said it would take Apple a long time to fix its maps fully because of the scale and complexity of the effort.

Google had a huge head start, he said, because it began doing maps for stationary computers, a less demanding task, and could gradually build on the data as smartphones and tablets emerged.

What Just Happened?

Cook: Update Google maps.
Schmidt: Pay us lots of License fees AND allocate lots of Apple engineers to update all fixes and updates and be happy with the inferior version. No Turn By Turn for You!

A few months later…..

Schmidt: OK! Dont pay us any fee’s. Have it for free. We do all the updates. And you can also have Turn by Turn and the App is better than the Android version. Happy now?

Talk about being screwed……and liking it.

It doesn't matter about initial the maps being rubbish, the best thing Apple could do is get rid of google maps being the default on their devices and improve their own.

Google:

Our maps are superior to Apple's. Confirmed.

We get millions of users from Apple and make money through data.

Apple's map users lost out due to Apple's incompetence.

Apple Maps reputation ruined.

Cook: Sorry for our Maps being so bad.

Damn we spent so much money on getting people to develop our maps.

Talk about shooting yourself in the foot and claiming you won.

Google pissed on I Phones and all the headlines are about Google. Free advertising.

Remember Apple maps being quite a big thing at the launch of the I Phone 5? HaHa.

Failure.
