Yeh issue out of nothing, apple replaces an app with a shocking product ad all you say is people should just use a webpage. How exactly will the majority of people know how to do this and why should they have to.
Im pretty sure if apple put out a press release saying if you go to an apple store they will bend you over and give it to you good and proper more apple fanboys would turn upand somehow justify it
Re: Meh ...
What a silly comment its irrelevant if google maps was not that good first time around, the iphone was using the current version of google maps not version 1.
The regression in features i can life with but the blatant shoddyness of locations, aerial images and place data is shocking ad in laces non existent.
In many places the roads are simply not mapped, in others they are spelt incorrectly and as the sear only allows exact matches some businesses and places will never be matched
Apple didnt need to release this now they should of got it out of version 0.00001 instead of putting their ego related google battles before their customers
Call me stupid but surely using patents that are part of a standard mean they need to be provided for licence on reasonable terms?
Dont they make a 5% referee fee from apple if someone links to the store and purchases?
In the Apple world Court they have already assessed the patents and provided their ruling
Yet again apple oversteps its mandate, unless they get a court order to remove it why are they taking sides?
Re: Isn't it obvious
Totally didnt think of this and yes it would explain the lack of crime scene at the flat and the bag
Who know how he got into that situation but the very strange part is the totally clean/srubed appearance of his flat
If this had been some bizzaire sex game gone wrong i doubt it would be this clean unless the 'other' people where part of the same "dark arts" whatever that is
We didnt try and land on this thing?
They did it in the movies!
Google slopy shoulders
With comments like this google may well have started the beginning of the end of android as a viable commercial device, you can guarantee phone manufacturers will drop it like a bad cold if there is any sign of validity of oracles claims now
Microsoft agreed cross licensing on these patents to allow them to create their JVM like frameworks, it is impossible for them to side with google who decided to skirt round these patents
Just as google has sided with verison on net neutrality that is for gooles self interest in the mobile world, microsoft has sided with oracle for interest ...so what?
The whole point of a warrant is to prove there are reasonable circumstances to investigate further
In not sure if the issue here was that the gps was placed on a car on provuate property?
If the gps had been placed on public property say in a public car part would that be ok?
Id say MS have innovated a lot in the online console space with other like sony, steam trying to catch up with trophies, steam achievements etc
If it wasnt for xbox live im sure psn would still be int he dark ages
8 vs 5
so ms wins right?
Im sure MS will find another 10 or so patents if they looked hard enough, companies like salesforce need to be careful they do not prod the nest troo hards or the will be in litigation well forever
Missing the point a bit
If i left my door unlocked would google be valid to have a look round my house and see what i own? Thought not. Of course they have every right to make a note of where my house is on a map.
The no harm done argument is silly, intent is the key and this is what the US government will hopefully get to the bottom of.
Either the google decision makers never knew about it or it was a 'rougue' engineer that somehow was never noticed in testing or the 3 years worth of data collected.
Google need to prove and provide the engineer or provide who approved the actions for appropriate privacy invasion sanctions.
Its about time this is a serious breach of anti tapping laws and needs to be treated seriously
It is not enough for google to say it was a a mistake they need to prove that it was a mistake by one person and that person needs to be punished in law
If there is proof that this was not actually one person but was an approved feature of the project them the approval line needs to be investigated and those people brought to task
This was not a one off grab of data but three years of data collection
