To an atheist, G. K. Chesterton somewhere remarked, the universe is the most exquisite mechanism ever constructed by nobody.

Guardian, BBC and Telegraph seem to be competing who gets to publish the biggest piece of crappy journalism.

Or maybe religious doctrine is intellectual laziness. Or doctrinal intellect is religious laziness. Or laziness is the doctrine of religious intellectualism.
My brain hurts.

Anybody with "half a brain", a category of people in which Heidi Moore clearly belongs, knows that Steve Jobs was a time traveller from the future (... of course he's from the future, silly, we haven't discovered time travel yet).
That being clearly established, Apple Maps was not a fiasco but an untimely look into the future. Missing buildings and collapsed bridges? Personally, I wouldn't take any chances and would avoid those locations.
Towns, points of interest and airports not represented in their current locations? Ever heard of tectonic plate movements?
Just like in hockey, where you don't skate towards the puck but towards where the puck is going to be, such is Apple Maps. Just maybe a little bit ahead of its time though.
