Could Mapgate be Apple's undoing?
I love Apple, but this Mapgate thing would not have occurred this way if Steve Jobs was around! It just wouldn't have!
The maps app would not have been released with so many imperfections, Steve liked polish and simplicity. This is a central feature of a smartphone, it has to work better than it does.
Tim Cook came out too quickly with an apology, and even recommended competitor apps. Again, Steve would have NEVER done this. Steve wasn't a fan of promoting competitors.
The iPhone 5 leaks were relentless, they completely stole its thunder,
Furthermore, what is going on with the TV negotiations? Is it possible that Steve Jobs was the only one capable of negotiating these impossible type groundbreaking contracts?
This is a sad time to be an Apple fan ;( I wish Steve was around, the heads would role!!!
