Harry Marks with a dose of reality:
Using a maps application or GPS device takes a modicum of common sense.
I had quite the debate this weekend with people over the maps app — keep in mind these are not nerd, just consumers — all of whom thought Apple was doomed because they had no maps app. Not that Maps was bad, that the coverage over the true problem is so bad that consumers don’t even know what the real problem is. And that’s the problem, not that consumers are actually having that many problems, but that the press has built up the issues to be so bad that consumers think there aren’t workable maps on the iPhone.
There was a lot of head-meets-desk this weekend.
