I wonder, if it truly is a hardware issue that can't be compensated for with software updates, how Apple will handle this one.

In regards to another earlier article, it's looking less WIP, and more mess.

That's what happen you want low price and quantity at the same time... part of the quality will get ignored.

I think it's a feature to counter the misdirection of Apple maps.

This is big trouble for Apple if a software update doesn't fix all of these bugs. Only see this leading to customers ditching Apple. Tim must be one worried president these days..
