    I only see one search bar.


    Just looked it up, Windows Live Search had two search bars. That was years ago.
    That's strange:

    It looks like that in the Playbook app too.

    Seems it does that if I switch my language to German. That's odd. Then again Microsoft always lags behind in their products when outside the US.

    It can't even get away with social features, since google already has Latitude.

    Besides who the fuck is gonna stop using google maps? it's so hilariously deeply ingrained in peoples minds that they're not gonna use apple maps, cause google maps are easy as fuck to access and use and there is no reason to change.
    A bit like how nobody use safari on macs.

    Gotta love how Facepunch instantly dismisses every new thing like this.
    "It's Apple so it has to be shit!!!!!!111! Am I right guys?"

    We know next to nothing about it right now, stop jumping to conclusions. Besides, even if the majority of people won't be using it some competition is always good.

    Yeah but the thing is, they're super late into the field and people will only use this cause it's built into the iphone, there is no other reason to use that over google maps.

    Besides Google Maps is a free service so there's hardly gonna be competition.

    Well, if Apple's maps actually turn out have some useful features that Google Maps don't have yet, it'll be an incentive for Google to improve their service. Everybody wins in the end.

    Being overpriced and claiming innovation while lacking features that everyone wants that won't come until second or third generation.

    Yeah except look at steam vs everyone else. Steams done it for so long, they basically dominated the field. If ANYONE gets close, they can expand to a huge degree right now, problem free.

    I'm sure apple fans will adore it anyway, then when they all use it against me. I'll be like "The technology has been around for years" and they'll be like "Yeah, but Apple made it public and so everyone can use it and its so amazing".

    Its really annoying that apple buys other companies then claims it as their own.
