Apple "Apple today announced it has sold over five million of its new iPhone 5, just three days after its launch on September 21, and more than 100 million iOS devices have been updated with iOS 6, the world's most advanced mobile operating system." The last claim is debatable, but the figures are not - very impressive. Of course, do note that the iPhone 5 was available in more countries than the 4S in its first weekend, and if you take that into account, the iPhone 5 didn't do any better than the 4S at all (which doesn't negate the incredible sales - it just highlights the smartphone market's growth might be slowing). It's also lower than what analysts expected, but they're just monkeys throwing darts at figures anyway.

The whole Google Maps subject is getting tired, though. Microsoft has cut a deal to use Nokia maps on all future Windows Phone 8 devices, where is the outrage about that?


Nokia maps work exceptionally well.

Apple's Maps app is not perfect, granted, but it is an initial effort and there are plenty of other apps that provide the same service, so it's not like users are completely out of luck.


Apple Maps are barely beta quality.
