Thanks heavens it’s only for photo-tagging: Apple has tossed yet another gauntlet onto the ground in its ongoing spat with Google, dropping Google Maps out of iPhoto for iOS and opting for OpenStreetMap instead.

  1. Aside from the well-known “you ripped off the iPhone” spat, is this possibly also because Google has started charging for Google Maps pageviews?

  2. Please consider they dind’t just “opted for”. They STOLE the maps, removing the licensing informations and any link to OSM.

  3. You’re quite a bit more harsh about this than OpenStreetMap themselves are:

    Yesterday Apple launched iPhoto, its photo management app, for the iPad and iPhone… and we’re rather pleased to find they’re the latest to switch to OpenStreetMap.

    It’s also missing the necessary credit to OpenStreetMap’s contributors; we look forward to working with Apple to get that on there.

Stop right there.

This is *not* about some arbitrary "30-year backwards compatibility".

This is about your patch BREAKING EXISTING BINARIES.

So stop the f*&^ing around already. The patch was shown to be broken,

stop making excuses, and stop blathering.

An entertaining read.

  1. The link seems to be broken. It keeps getting timeouts (error 7).

  2. Site’s overloaded. Took me 2 or 3 reloads.
