Apple Maps makes Mad Magazine’s “20 Dumbest” list of 2012
Apple Maps made the list of the “20 Dumbest People, Events, and Things of 2012” amongst President Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Facebook and more. For Apple’s sake, Mad took the route that Apple and CEO Tim Cook took when the company decided to face the music and apologize for Apple Maps by writing up a full-page letter to the faithful followers led astray by the new map program.
We particularly like the confidence instilled by citing "more than a dozen people" that trust the application. The recommendation to try folding maps found at gas stations or sneak a peek at an Android phone brought about a chuckle as well. The final summary of the mock letter lets Apple have it with a wincing remark about being a directionless company in the absence of Steve Jobs.
Apple will find its compass again, as soon as Maps tells the company where to look. Click to zoom-in and enjoy the scorching letter below.

This is really funny. Some of the points were a little exaggerated, but had a good laugh. Especially the top, "Cupertino, 2 miles from Austin, Texas" That was hilarious. Oh god, what must the iPhone 5 and other iOS 6 users be going through right now. lol :D
