Question - why would Google bail Apple out at this point and release a Google Maps app? After all, you can go to maps.google.com and get 80% of the functionality of a dedicated app. I just don't see it happening. It is a big black eye for Apple and Google must be tickled pink. It is a major win for Google and I can see Apple losing customers over it. Last year - Siri beta (meh) This year - Apple maps (fail) Thoughts?
