Apple "Between 2009 and 2011, Apple acquired three mapping companies in quick succession: Placebase, in 2009; 3-D mapping outfit Poly9 in 2010; and in 2011, C3 Technologies, a second 3-D mapping company. Three mapping-company acquisitions in as many years. But for good reason: Apple has been hard at work developing its own in-house mapping solution for iOS, and now it's finally ready to debut it." I'm probably crazy, but I've never used the map applications on my mobile phones, so it's difficult for me to get excited about this.

It would be hard to blow my head off with a map app. Google Maps does a good job on Android. I'm not trying to become the mayor or even tell everyone every place I go with checkins.. I just want to know what subway station is nearest and if I am walking the correct way down the block.

Oh, i guess actually having an iDevice would be a prerequisite... deal breaker...
