Apple Inc. (AAPL) has fired the manager responsible for its troubled mapping software, seeking to win back the trust of users disappointed after the program debuted in September, according to people familiar with the move.
Hopefully this is a start, but I have my doubts.
This morning I said into the Maps app, "Hollywood DMV" and it botched it by sending me to a business called DMV in Hollywood, FL. Then I said it into the Google app and it found it instantly, only to spawn me off into Google Map's web app. I just tried it starting with Siri from the Springboard and it got it right.
What a mess.
