    So now that the CEO himself has come out and admitted you're better off with the competition, it's just been noticed that Apple Maps also fails at security for many sensitive places. What a complete hack Apple have become. I can see the new tagline: Apple Maps - The Number 1 Map Choice of Evil Doers.

    I think government censorship of aerial imagery is really lame. If it needs to be truly hidden, they should stick it in the ground or in a hanger, but otherwise don't worry about it. If you can see it from the ground, why annoy people by hiding it on aerial imagery.

    I remember when the US Capitol building was blurred on Google Earth a few years ago - what the hell was the point in that?

    Good grief. The hits just keep on coming. Make no mistake this is a complete failure for Apple. I have never seen an iPhone launch with so many issues. Thankfully for Apple, the drones will keep on buying as they don't know any better. Apple has the public fooled that "it just works" even when it clearly doesn't just work. But this cache of goodwill won't last forever.

    Sensitive things happen on the ground, hence "testing grounds". I work on Aberdeen Proving Grounds on occasion. Every time I go on base in the back areas I have to have a constant escort and can't bring a phone with a camera on it. So not being able to look at detailed ariel photos shouldn't be surprising....

    Edit: I just check APG is as clear as day on Apples maps, you can see all the ranges and even the bunkers precise locations even though they are camouflage under the ground hahah. How did they manage to pull that off when some of there satellite views are so bad?!

    Why suddenly dig up a more than a 2 year old thread for that?
