Steve Jobs once said about iPhone's virtual keyboard: "when you don't need it's not there, when you need it it's there".
Well with Apple's map "when you need it's not there, but when you don't it just won't go away"

The problem with a virtual keyboard is that it covers up the screen that you still need.

This is amazing. Apple cant get a break...lol. And Google Maps having a blurry image was actually a good thing.
Makes me feel extra good about Google Maps and privacy now. Wonder what all the privacy folks that hate on Google have to say...lol
