Apple iOS 6 Maps FailIs very hard to remember when Apple makes  a bad move. Unfortunately, this time every iOS 6 user is affected. The new Maps app seams to have a huge problem: it doesn’t have maps.

In a very strange move, Apple decided to replace Google Maps app with their own Maps app, starting with iOS 6 update. The result can be seen in the picture.

Apple had no reason to replace Google Maps app, which is one of the best app that Google ever made with another one, since no one ever complained with it. Except the fact that it was made by Google, which doesn’t seem to be on Apple’s friends list.

Apple iPhone 5 is now Official: Slimmer, Faster, LTE and iOS 6

Apple iPhone 5 and EarPodsIt’s probably not news to anyone keeping up with the tech community that the iPhone 5 was launched yesterday. At around 1PM San Francisco time, Apple held their usual “top-secret” press conference to make a big announcement.

Latest iPad “Mini” rumors: design, price and specs

iPad and iPad MiniFirst let me begin that here is no name set for the 7″ iPad that is expected to be announced in the near future. If it follows the iPod it will be called a Nano but the “iPad Mini” and “iPad 7″ have all been tossed around as well.

The Amazon Kindle has proven that 7″ tablets have a place in the hands of consumers and between its success and the upcoming pre-order success of the Nexus 7 this is the first piece of technology that Apple is going into in years where they are actually late to the table. That being said iPad’s are still the tablet of choice and therefor should have a quick advantage on taking the throne of the 7” tablet.

According to Mashable – Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray, one of the industry’s top analysts, told attendees at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech conference in Aspen that an iPad Mini was “highly likely.”

So why is it likely? Well it basically is an easy way to expand their product line in the tablet market. While they own 90% of the 10″ market it lowers to 75% when you look at the market as a whole and that’s a lot of additional room to grow in still.
