The Apple Islands

by

I cracked up this morning when I came across this news article concerning Apple’s iOS6’s brand new inhouse maps software and the Senkaku Diaoyu fisticuffs going on between China and Japan.

Apple has been coming under fire for their new maps software being extremely inaccurate. Apple removed the old Google maps version (which worked a treat incidentally), as Google are becoming an increasingly large competitor in the phone market. Apple’s new map software actually performs quite well – utilising new high-speed vector graphics which allow panning without that annoying catch-up effect.

Anyhow, one of the inaccuracies relates specifically to these most hotly contested islands. Yes the islands are there…but in duplicate! I have absolutely no idea how the software could possibly do this, but it has mapped two identical sets of islands – one for China..one for Japan 🙂

Who’d a thunk something so tense could be so easily solved? All that needs to happy now is to get someone from Dubai in to make this happen.

Twin Senkaku’s..or is that Twin Daioyu’s…

    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as
    I provide credit and sources back to your webpage? My website is in the
    very same niche as yours and my users would truly benefit from a lot of the information you provide here.
    Please let me know if this ok with you. Thanks!
