Saw this come across Twitter this morning.

 

 

Nokia took the time to take advantage of (another) Apple Maps goof to promote their own HERE Maps.

Lol, ironic - considering how WP market place lags well behind either iOS/Android app store/Play store. You could just use Google Maps on iOS - I still don't know why people use Apple maps, boggles my mind when I read that article yesterday.

Quality jab.  Google Maps still reigns supreme though.

WP8 doesn't have Apple Maps either, but that's not the point

They're making fun of Apple Maps, which everybody already knows is a POS.

Anybody with half a brain stopped using that junk a long time ago and downloaded Google Maps.

Yeah they are also laughing at their customers for taking premium prices for something that isn't so much premium as a whole anylonger.

 

If Steve Jobs had been alive and working at Apple, Apple Maps would never have been released like it did earlier.

I definitely agree with that. He would not have tolerated that at all.

You must be American, I can tell from the fact you don't know what irony is.

Everyone always says that for every bad thing Apple does. "If Steve were alive, he would never have allowed this" blah blah blah. You know he probably knew all about maps.
