    So after Samsung was followed by Nokia stating, "it doesn't take a genius" to wisely chose their device over the iPhone, Motorola has now taken their turn at bat. I think it's another funny one....iLost, funny shlt.

    Apple is looking down right foolish over this map thing, that's for sure.

    Agreed. What an epic blunder.

    It's this generation's "Damn You iPhone Auto Correction."

    Fun for all on the interwebs.

    SMH @ Apple's "robust" mapping features.

    This one isn't that funny though. The iClouds jokes are funnier imo :D

    Apple is probably the only company who can get away with a blunder like this and not affect sales.... They are still selling them as fast as they can make them despite the whole maps fiasco. Its funny how Samsung and Motorola spend all this money trying to diss Apple in commercials and ads, but it hasn't deterred Millions and Millions of people from pre-ordering and lining up.

    Judging from the huge marketshare lead Android has and how Samsung's Galaxy line outsells the iphone, I doubt Samsung NEED to do anything. They are just doing it because they can.

    While it's funny, it's not very creative. #iLost? Yea who hasn't thought of putting a word after "i" ?

    Of course they are showing a plain view against a satellite map view as well....

    Oh and remember this is Google, not Motorola. There is no Motorola cell phone group any more - it's owned by Google...

    Motorola is closing offices all over the globe...

    Maybe they should worry less about Apple, and start focusing on making a product that isn't hideous.

    Came in to say this. Tell me when you have a phone with a non-crappy screen, and doesn't feel like it was made in the 80s Moto.

    Yep. They can't troll Apple directly, so they do it through their recently aquired subsidiary instead.

    Omg wait...they knew this was coming since they had pulled their maps from iOS 6, so they bought Motorola only to......... :eek:

    I'm disgusted by Apple Maps, but I'm even more disgusted by that Motorola AND Verizon carrier branding on the face of the phone.

    Both those companies can go **** themselves with that.

    Also, that RAZR looks like it was designed by a child who plays Madden on Xbox. What a piece of crap.

    The only thing I can say about that Moto phone is it looks better than that iPhone 4 slab next to it. Oh, sorry, it's the iPhone 5.

    Apple's obviously not taking this ad very seriously--the bad search result is still showing up in Apple Maps.

    On the other hand--and it's already been pointed out by one commenter here--where does Motorola get off comparing satellite view on the MOTO phone to a standard view on the iPhone? At a glance, it looks like the iPhone doesn't offer satellite view, when of course it does.

    Probably payback for the Droid Apple used in their antennagate video.

    A contract ran out, it wasn't them pulling it off maliciously.

    Same reason why there was no YouTube.

    Do we know why negotiations failed?

    Not that I am defending Google, but please, Apple has its fair share of lies.

    "The iPhone 5 is the world's thinnest phone" anyone?

    And revealing this farce of Google/Moto doesn't make Apple Maps better.
