    Remember kids, only Google has the smarts to make good-looking webmaps. Those amateurs at Apple can only make embarrassing distortions of reality. Oh, wait.

    quite rightly, people have been ragging on apple maps for not providing public transit directions.

    this morning Google Maps UK switched from using Tele Atlas’s data to their own, lovingly handcrafted by some guys driving StreetView cars and a digitizing sweatshop in India.

    "You’d better tell the Captain we’ve got to land as soon as we can. This plane has to be gotten to an airport."
