You've seen the mockery over Apple's messy map app and how will sometimes give users wrong information, but the question this past week have turned to why.

And so it chose to move quickly ahead with this own creation and breakoff its dependence on Google. Well, you know Google's been perfecting its map database for 7 years so Apple's got a ways to go, it's just getting started. But I wanna hear what you think about all this.
