Before you start calling me just another hater, I've been a major Apple fan for 20 years+. That said, I just don't get it. What's the real-world use for 3D maps? Why spend (hundreds of?) millions of dollars developing 3D maps instead of competing with Google's street view (which is WAY quicker to load and much more useful)? I always used street view when I was driving to a new location so I knew exactly what the place looked like before I even got in my car. I could see the storefront and other stores around it making it very easy to find. 3D maps on the other hand are slow to load (even on my i5), from a bird's eye view (instead of a straight-on shot), and are available in what... .02% of the US? While this new feature "looks cool", I fail to see its usefulness over something like street view.
