Maps absolutely sucks. Wonder why Apple's stock is so depressed? Look no further.
Lots of people disagree with you. I've used it and it certainly doesn't "blow". Many people DO like directions and the fly over view. Just because you don't doesn't mean that the whole thing is a pos. Maybe to you, and you're entitled to your opinion though.

Some people get so worked up over nothing.

Besides when Google relases it's iOS maps app, you can be happy again.

So OSX 11 won't look like windows 8.

That's reassuring.

Nice to hear Cook come out and address this issue. I know I've been more than a little concerned.

I think Cook was right on; organizational culture is more important than most people think and it only takes a few bad apples to spoil everything. Also, with as much money as Apple is paying it's top execs they SHOULD be A-Plus in all areas including collaboration.

Having the right people on board is super important which leads to a good business maxim: be quick to fire, slow to hire. This doesn't mean to "can" people that make mistakes...what it means is to take your time to hire the right people and if you find that they aren't right for the organization then you get rid of them fast before they poison your organization's culture and force the good people out.

If it wasn't for Scott Forstall none of us would know what the word skeuomorphism means. And for that we should all be truly grateful.

I don't doubt that some of the recent stock tumbles are effects of questions being raised in the wake of the recent shakeup. A bit like "Oh, wow... OK. So now what will happen?" So while I may be biased here, I do think this interview is a smart move by Cook, and probably calculated.
No question about it and frankly does it not make you feel better as a stock holder to have the belief that the company is on the right path for more success. Both on a PR front and a management front this is a very good move. You want senior leaders to collaborate as a team and NOT some dictatorship with the head guy just pushing folks buttons on his beliefs. Not one of these 4 guys at the leadership can do all 4 jobs effectively. So collaboration as a team with the same goals in mind are what it takes to succeed. Now since they did that than use it as good PR as well. Frankly pretty damn smart.

Apple Maps is pretty good. Yes there were a few problems but that's to be expected. It was senior management's decision to sever ties with Google Maps and rush out a new product. Then Eddy Cue fires the manager in charge of Apple Maps. Heads must roll I suppose.

Apple seems like a pretty political place right now, people jockeying for position and throwing enemies under the bus. Looking at those photos, diversity does not exist anywhere near the reigns of power.

I just hope that in the post-Jobs era, under Tim Cook, Apple manages to continue being successful.
Diversity should happen and not be based for the sake of it. I say this even though I am not white. Talent should win to get and make the best.

We don't subscribe to the vision that the OS for iPhones and iPads should be the same as Mac.
I don't agree with this. iOS so far is only good for COMICS, games, movies, music and web. I want mobile productivity. Unfortunately I'm going to have to go back to windows for that. MS is not there yet but when they are I'll be switching back.

Right now the ipad compliments your laptop and PC. I want it to replace it some day.

Technology has to move forward or you will be left behind again Apple.

I assume that you are not male either?

There are many talented people that don't get to make it to the top. And NO, diversity doesn't "just happen".

Besides I was simply making an observation.

Face it, without Steve Jobs (half Syrian, half Swiss) those talented people wouldn't even be working at Apple today since it would have gone belly up 12 years ago.

The "talented" people that took over Apple and kicked Jobs out ran the company into the ground.

I think they need some females on that team... maybe that will help with the collaboration efforts, then we'll see some real change.
