This has affected me severely and I'll be suing Apple for mental anguish...
Considering that suing is as American as Fish&Chips is British, it is just a matter of time until someone does and gets paid off.

'We give you $0'
'Ok, lets meet in the he middle'

So those are the people you you talking to (or about). Nothing you can you about them. An the whole topic is about the a problem, I'm not sure of the people who came to this forum to point it out (why are they here?).

And if it was most any other company in the world it wouldn't have been labeled a "fiasco". Overall, maps worked great for me. Anyone who thought they'd be perfect first time through is crazy. All that and we're still talking about maps, only because it's Apple.

I saw SO many of the map reports were bad 3d images, those don't get you lost, that's when you're goofing around with 3d flyovers. They added to the fuel and we a cute feature that had some problems.

Don't get me wrong there were map mistakes, but looking at the directions before you start driving are a good idea with an app, a printout from google maps or a TripTik from AAA.

If I'm trying to go up north and the directions are taking me south, people need to use a little common sense and not complain the program got me lost. When you type in a location it shows you a map and when you route it shows you the overview.

But what is the point of making the statement. The people you are referring to aren't listening. You're just stirring the pot.

Not sure the point of this, the alarms work fine. The Do Not Disturb function didn't work. It's a brand new feature, it's the first time it crossed over to a new year. Again, if it wasn't Apple, this wouldn't be such a huge issue. And there wouldn't been all these people stirring the pot.

It's not like the phones stopped working like when all the Zunes stopped working a new year's (last year?). They just stopped.

MY HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT: Apple didn't send an e-mail out to everyone (or a text message) warning them of the problem. I'm sure a few people were confused as to why they didn't hear the phone ringing.

Not that most companies would send out such a thing, but it sure would be useful.

My (way more) than 2 cents,
Gary

I give up.

The argument will just go to-and-fro forever.

To the crowd that feel "apple can never do wrong" there is no talking sense to them. Sometimes I wonder if they're being argumentative for the sake of being augmentative. If something's wrong with a product and it stinks - then it stinks. It's the way Steve Jobs often looked at it himself.

The bottom line is this: Apple used to pride themselves as a company who produced products (and software) that "just works".

That I'm afraid, is no longer applicable - even though I dearly wish it was...
The hardware by all accounts is great. The software (iOS) is letting it down.
It's no doubt why heads rolled.

It's delusional for people to constantly make excuses for them in the face of a flawed product.

That's all I have to say on the matter.

And I agree with you 100%! Apple can release "poop" and some people here will think that it's the next best thing.

I assume that you're not including the Mac Pro in this "hardware is great" position. The Mac Pro is years out of date.... It's an embarrassment to the brand.

Daylight Savings Time (aka Summer Time for international English speakers) started this morning for most of us in the US. I checked the time online just to be sure my iPhone had switched over. So far so good. Has Apple finally solved its clock issues?! Maybe development for the rumored iWatch has actually done some good!
