Confirmation bias

So Apple maps does this when it’s released, first iteration:


and it’s OMG, Apple Maps fail!

But Google Maps does this six months later:


and it’s art.

All I know is that the week before Apple Maps came out, Google Maps sent me to the wrong location twice in one week, and not for the first time either. Apple Maps has never sent me to the wrong location.

It did not know where Devil’s Punchbowl is, and Google Maps did. But the fail, unlike GMaps, was perfectly clear, and unlike GMaps, did not cost me $10 in parking and being a half an hour late. And before AMaps, I didn’t have audio turn-by-turn directions and always visible maps. Now I do. And also Google is not getting to track my location every time I use it.
