Apple’s New Maps App Shafts Columbia
Written by Bwog Staff
Yesterday, Apple released the latest iteration, iOS 6, of their immensely popular operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices. The flagship feature of the release is a completely re-designed, Apple-developed Maps application, which has already drawn flak from users and experts alike. The fanciest innovation is Flyover, giving you a birds-eye-view of major urban areas through helicopter-based 3D mapping. Considering the thousands of glowing insignia and white earbuds adorning our fair campus, one would think that Apple would have taken the opportunity for a close-up, but Columbia proper is not included in the Flyover-enabled area of Manhattan: in fact, the cutoff is 114th street. Though “Rush Beta” is visible along frat row in all its glory, Butler remains a decidedly flat gray mass. Maybe Apple couldn’t get media access?
