      Why are the articles on this website constantly becoming increasingly biased? I can understand the logic in hoping for improved mapping functionality, but honestly, who cares if Apple are still using Google's imagery? Obviously it isn't APPLE imagery and that doesn't satisfy your fanboy hunger but as far as I can tell Google Maps is currently the best out there so you could do much worse and reliance on the imagery shouldn't affect the ability of the software anyway.BTW, before everyone starts the flaming I'm not anti-apple. I have an iPhone and a Macbook Pro. I just can't stand biased fanyboyism.

      There is no doubt about Google maps being the best mapping solution out there, at least amongst free options. But taking a cue from the present Apple-Google relationship, Apple would like to put its acquisitions to use.
