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.

Walmart crisis

With google maps I could find 7 Walmarts in my city but with iOS Maps I can only find 2 Walmarts in the entire country, and one of those hits are in Hongkong (the other one is in Shanghai).

Other than that it seems to find the same things as before.

[correction! the iOS map search required a "-", so it should have been "Wal-mart", not "Walmart". Now I can find 10 wal-marts in my city, google map does the same. Still I give the upper hand to google for finding at least 7 "walmarts" where iOS maps found 0.]
