Apple Maps is too good... for Taiwan's military secrets

This follows after last week Turkish Sosyalmedya accused rang alert over a picture of maximum security prison. Now, Taiwan is asking Apple to blur a radar installation under construction that is right now visible on the company’s maps.
“Apple should follow its rival Google in using only low-resolution satellite pictures.” The station is situated near Hsinchu Airbase in northern Taiwan and monitors aircrafts and missiles that could come from “as far as western China.”

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" LOL

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
