Motorola makes fun of getting #iLost
Oh Motorola! You guys just love to kick a rival Apple when it's already down. Remember what you did in 2010 when the Apple iPhone 4 was just released and it quickly became apparent that the antenna design was flawed? Your full page ad for the Motorola DROID X in the New York Times shouted out in bold type, "No Jacket Required," making fun of the free rubber bumpers that Apple was handing out to iPhone 4 owners to prevent attenuation of the antenna.

Now, you are making fun of the problems that Apple iOS 6 users have been having with the new Apple mapping application. Right on your Google+ and Twitter page, you show the Motorola DROID RAZR M getting directions to 315 East 15th Street in Manhattan while the new mapping application on iOS 6 shows an address in Brooklyn on the new Apple iPhone 5. You guys are like the Raptors in Jurassic Park, always testing for weaknesses. No one looking for Manhattan wants to end up in Brooklyn! Replace Brooklyn with the Bronx and you could have Bonfire of the Vanities.

While we don't take sides here, we have to say, well played Motorola, well played.
