Humor: Apple Maps apologizes to the masses
Apple Maps is a gift that keeps on giving, and so is another iconic iPhone feature, Siri. While there is no doubt that Apple’s Maps application will be improved upon over time, we suspect that thanks to its initial launch, each new version will be easy pickings for the comics and comedians everywhere. Thus, Apple Maps will continue to be a gift that keeps on giving.

Apple Maps was useful for only one thing - Being the butt of Apple jokes.

Apple Maps is just not ready for prime time. Welcome to Apple under Timmy's stewardship. If there is any doubt how Steve would have responded, look back to his response to the MobileMe debacle (Apple Maps is worse). That ain't gonna happen under Timmy.

i think siri should answer... "Sorry i didn't catch that. Would you like me to search the web for you?"

Gotta give it up for Apple Maps tho!
The world would've been deprived of making fun of iOS users and Apple if the compnay didnt take the step.
Wake up sheep...Apple is screwing you over...and over....and over again :)

Is it only me or this 'Humor' really lacks the punch? -__-

The story should have been ended on the third frame.

i agree that this humor lacks a good punch-line. But i think they meant that even Siri is a fail, where it couldn't answer the maps question, or with the fact that Apple never apologized from their fans, makes it hard for Siri to come with a decent apologize.

I thought it was going to apologize for having a logo that is telling someone to go off of a bridge and onto a highway.

The judge probably asked siri what the verdict should be when Apple sued Samsung. Aha
