Excellence takes years; iPhone 5 launched

Excellence takes years

Apple is once again making headlines. And it's not just about the iPhone 5 launch, but also the in-house maps app in the new smartphone. Unlike the previous Google Maps version, Apple's maps lack detail, don't give you transit information and make the world look like it just suffered an apocalypse when viewed in 3D mode. It reminds us that coming up with a great mapping solution takes years of work--mastery in any field takes time.
Further demonstrating this in another category are the two digital camera heavyweights. Canon and Nikon have years of experience when it comes to full-frame cameras, so their fans naturally feel the upcoming 6Dand D600 dSLRs will be great. We fully understand why Nikon fans feel hurt when we left the D600 out of our top five favorite Photokina cameras.
iPhone users will have to accept that iOS 6's maps won't catch up with Google's in a short time. In the meantime, just download some third-party apps to fill up the void, and enjoy the aspects of the iPhone 5 that Apple has spent years perfecting.
