    I wish they could have just added their sat nav aspect to the Google Maps, as the sat nav system is really good and in itself (if it had the good maps service to support it) would have been a revolution :)

    yeah interestingly I went into work today and made a joke about the maps and the sales and marketing directors said they found the new turn by turn absolutely brilliant! had been using it all weekend and found it superb

    There is also no satellite images for our part of the world either, released way too soon for me.

    Downloaded IO6 on my iPad3. Don't see what the fuss is about for the most part. I was maybe expecting the clouds to part but to me aside from the clock, and maps, don't really see why I even updated the software. Haven't tried the SIRI thing. I was dissapointed that the camera won't do the panoramas like the phone is supposed to do.

    What's the buzz...tell me whats a happenin

    generally speaking IOS6 was taking what they had, making it a bit faster, adding facebook sharing into more places so you can share more easliy... shared photostreams, better email (the VIP feature is useful), shared photo streams...

    http://www.apple.com/ios/whats-new/

    It's all in there but its not necessarily "in your face" like a totally new app or something

    Interesting. :mental:

    Tim Cook apologizes for Maps in IOS 6.

    If Steve Jobs were still around they'd need a whole new engineering staff working on Maps cause the old ones would've been fired in about 10 seconds.

    Tom :)macwave:... at least they're admitting it's garbage...)

    So....I tried Siri for the first time...novel, but she is one cofused gal!!! I wonder where the whole voice activated thing will eventually lead. I guess it is a start right?:unsure:

    Ask her to "open the pod bay doors". And keep asking her until you get the answer you think you're looking for. :mental:

    Tom :)macwave:... great... technology that thinks it has a sense of humor!)
