And it vows to pour as much time and manpower into repairing Maps as it takes."]  New York Times [Free/Paid Registration Required] 6:06 PM
  • "Apple-Google Maps Talks Crashed Over Voice-Guided Directions" ["Spoken turn-by-turn navigation has been a free service offered through Google's Android mobile OS for a few years now. But it was never part of the deal that brought Google's maps to iOS. And sources say Apple very much wanted it to be. Requiring iPhone users to look directly at handsets for directions and manually move through each step — while Android users enjoyed native voice-guided instructions — put Apple at a clear disadvantage in the mobile space. And having chosen Google as its original mapping partner, the iPhone maker was now in a position where an archrival was calling the shots on functionality important to the iOS maps feature set."]  AllThingsD 2:52 PM

The driver then inched the vehicle deeper into the Apple showroom as a person exited the vehicle and began grabbing as many iPhones and iPads as possible ... The driver's bail was set to- you guessed it: $600,000 (which was reportedly the cost of damage to the store). ... when is the last time you heard of someone driving a car through a window to get a hold of Google's Droid? Or selling their kidney just to get their hands on a Nokia Lumina? ... You haven't.
