http://techcrunch.com – So, iOS 6 is upon us and people are going to start getting their new iPhones this week as well. What they’ll soon (maybe) realize is that Maps for iOS is no longer powered by Google. And it sucks something fierce, and yes I’m using iOS 6 GM. I’m not going to go into tons of technical detail as to why this is, but let me just say that when consumers are used to an experience for oh, five years, and you all of a sudden change it, people are going to be angry or confused. I’m betting on both happening with the Maps app. Apple decided to build its own and no longer work wit (IT news)
