re: Australian Police Steer Drivers Away From Apple Maps
Article: "The police are strongly suggesting that travelers find an alternative to Apple Maps until Apple fixes its software. (Of course, it wouldn't hurt if travelers heading into the desert also brought along a couple gallons of water.)"

Response: Maybe they would have brought along some water, if they had any inkling that their defective Apple Maps would land them 45 miles away from their intended destination of Mildura! It was the Apple Maps that steered them there, not a decision on their part to take a drive through a desert with actual forethought.

Isn't this kind of like blaming a car rental driver for going into a drug-filled neighborhood because of faulty instructions given to them by the rental agency? I see major lawsuit potential if anyone ends up dead because of these glaring errors.
