You don't like FREE updates and enhancements to the operating system? I do!


Well i do but from other sources. And i like to be root on every system, and apples philosophy is to avoid such things, thats what i don't really like on iOS. And it depends on what a user need from these os's.

Waze obsolete when iOS6 is out?

I am wondering, if Waze will be obsolete, when iOS6 is out. I know, Apple will implement Waze: But who will install Waze, when you have a navigation app onboard of your iPhone?

Even if apple maps were to somehow be good enough to blow Waze out of the water in Apple land, it would be far from obsolete as we android users count for more than a couple of the Wazers on the road.

Remember Apple is not the only device brand out there.

No, we are not too worried. Remember iTunes "ping"? It would shake the sh*t out of Facebook... not.

No no, that is because I do not have any "friends".

As Samsung and Apple combined employ more lawyers than developers it is a miracle that there still are updates getting produced at all.

It ain't over till the fat lady sings etc. As it looks Applegate bought Waze an extra year, maybe two, and gave it a fantastic growth. But nothing final (yet).
