Apple and Google divorce over iPhone Maps, are they?
For those of us that absolutely love our iPhone, then this is really sad almost as serious as Divorce, as surely if this wasn’t the case then why on earth would Apple buy a mapping company.
Apparently though this isn’t so, the tight integration between the iPhone and Google is a massive part of why us people who have iPhones just love them. Apple has bought it’s very own mapping company Placebase and it is making us feel a little uneasy.
The deal which happened in July, added some talent to a ’Geo’ unit inside Apple. We just hope that before Apple starts messing with Google maps on iPhones, it really must consider the consequences.
There may not actually be a major conflict here but we are pretty certain that Apple and Google are not as lovey dovey as they used to be. Source – pcworld.com
