    When we first heard that Apple was planning on ditching Google Maps in the latest version of iOS for their own home-brewed mapping service in iOS 6, we were concerned. It seemed as if Apple had taken their feud with Google to a ridiculous level by denying customers access to their preferred mapping app simply out of spite.
    More than that, we were doubtful that Apple would be able to compete with Google in the mapping arena. Lacking the millions upon millions of Google searches performed in Maps, Apple had a lot less data upon which to build maps of various cities around the world. To try to take on Google at a service they'd offered for the past seven years seemed like a recipe for disaster.
    But oh boy how we were wrong! With the latest Maps app for iOS 6, Apple has literally changed the world! Just look at how many things have changed since iOS 6 Maps have been introduced. New airports have been created! Cool, wavy bridges are suddenly appearing! It's the kind of radical global makeover Steve Jobs would have loved!*

    I thought Sam I AM owned the copyright for slamming Apple in this forum... prepare to be sued for copyright infringement.

    Nah, I open to sharing the wealth in this case. ;)

    I will say this. Steve Jobs must be rolling over in his grave. I don't think he would knowingly release a product of the quality that we are seeing images of. I don't think he would do it just because he wouldn't want to have to embarrassingly answer for it. He absolutely hated the fact that he had to address the whole antenna issue. From what I've seen, this makes the antenna issue rather small in comparison.

    :laugh2: It's not even called the Sears Tower anymore. Now it's the Willis Tower or something like that. Of course, I will never call it by that name. It will always be the Sears Tower to me. (I have an affinity for skyscrapers)

    I think this image is correct...it just so happens the picture was taken right at the time that a natural disaster movie or marvel comics movie was being shot on the bridge. :laugh2:

    Looks like the Tacoma Narrows bridge collapse except that the Tacoma Narrows bridge was a suspension bridge.

    One of those things where you just can't take your eyes off of it because it looks so crazy.
