Apple "It seems like people really hate the new Maps in iOS 6. Now, I'm not disputing that Maps does give a lot of strange results to a lot of people all around the world, but for a large, large number of people, iOS 6 Maps has been a huge improvement over Google Maps. I'm talking about those of us who live in China (you know, the place with 1.3+ billion people and the second-largest economy in the world)." Fascinating.

My god, it is getting worse and worse:

This idiot hasn't realized (or is willfully lying) that one can get as many PoI in Google Maps as in iOS Map... By zooming in more.

Look for yourself:

There is even the "Liguozhu Yishi Clinics" listed in Google Maps where the iOS Map sees only the "Bahe Drug Store". Pitiful.

Yeah, "fascinating". Fascinating how stupid or deluded or fibbing Anthony Drendel is.

You are providing a link to the web-based Google Maps, not a screenshot of Google Maps on iOS5. You do understand the two are not the same?
