    The South Australian daily newspaper, the "Advertiser", this morning featured this cartoon re the current iPad Maps app.

    This was in response to some recent articles in that paper tut tutting about how bad that app is, and one journalist reporting the very great danger to peoples' lives, giving as an example someone getting lost by using the app and wandering into some arid Reserve out of reach of their iPhone.

    One writer did mention that Apple was working on improving that app. No mention of the Big Apology.
    Thought I would share.
    Regards, Andrew

    You may well be right (some Mini iPad and iPhone owners may disagree with you regarding screen size). But the point of the, in my opinion, somewhat sensationalist newspaper article, which I don't necessarily agree with, was that the use of the Maps app can lead you into dramatic life-threatening situations. The purpose of my post was really to share an amusing cartoon.

    I was wondering why when I showed up at the Grand Canyon I was actually at the Serengeti.
