Humor: Apple Maps apologizes to the masses

Humor: Apple Maps apologizes to the masses
We have seen some interesting ideas as to why Apple Maps was not any good.  Indeed, the theory that Apple Maps is indeed quite accurate in a parallel universe is quite a compelling argument. 

Apple Maps is a gift that keeps on giving, and so is another iconic iPhone feature, Siri.  While there is no doubt that Appleā€™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.

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 :)

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
