Apple maps: how Google lost when everyone thought it had won

http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2013/nov/11/apple-maps...

Is Apple Maps perfect? No. Neither is Google. Or Garmin Nuvi's maps. No Map is perfect. I've never had an experience using Apple's Maps that I haven't had on any other Map app - and Apple's Maps is getting better all the time.

Get the 5s or Wait for the 6?

Decisions, decisions. My battery is dying in my poor old SG2S, although it will probably last another year. I recently got my wife an iPhone 4s, but I've been using it more than her grin I have to admit that I am impressed, even with a smaller screen. From all I've read there's a lot to like about the 5s.

Clueless Drivers

It's unbelievable how clueless some drivers can be

*this post is not intended to bash Apple maps. All nav apps can give incorrect directions. It's up to the drivers to use their brains.

iPhone 5s Touch ID Safe?

The biometrics hacking team of the Chaos Computer Club (CCC) has successfully bypassed the biometric security of Apple's TouchID using easy everyday means. A fingerprint of the phone user, photographed from a glass surface, was enough to create a fake finger that could unlock an iPhone 5s secured with TouchID.

Attention iPhone/iPad users: iOS7 release soon

Likely 1PM US Eastern Time... iTunes 11.1 is now available as well - for best results you should install that before updating your iPhone/iPad to iOS7 .

Happy downloading.

I've been running the iOS7 betas... it will be like having a new phone...
