re: iOS 6: 5 Things That Disappoint
"lack of Flash support" - my heart sank but then, as I continued reading, I laughed whole heartedly when I saw you were kidding! Whew! hahaha! I'll be honest, I don't even bother supporting Flash on my desktop browsers.
I'm installing iOS6 on an iPad right now. I cannot wait to play with Maps! Everything I've read about it has been so funny. It sounds just like they took MapQuest circa 1999 and turned it into an app.
Siri... well, Siri isn't as funny as Maps. Siri is... well, Apple has a very long history with voice recognition software. I can't recall what it was called but, it was included in OS7 in 1995-6. True, the scope of what you could use voice recognition for back then was pretty much limited to software manipulation but, that was nearly 20 years ago. And now Siri seems to be a complete PR disaster for Apple. I honestly don't know what's worse - Siri saying that some Nokia phone is the best phone when asked or Apple subjugating your results through Siri.
Out of curiosity, has Apple ever been asked for an official response on why they don't allow their default apps to be removed?
Anywho, thanks for writing this article! I really enjoyed reading it and appreciate the tips!
