We Need Apple & Google to Work Together Again
Jon Mitchell, Read Write Web
On Tuesday, Apple’s iMessage service went down. Again. For the second time this week. Last week, when the amazing new Atebits iOS game, Letterpress, came out, Game Center collapsed in a heap, making the game nearly unplayable. If Apple insists on being a a service provider, not just a device maker, it had better get its act together.
Apple’s new, in-house Maps are mostly okay in the U.S., but they are unusable elsewhere. Siri, the artificially intelligent assistant, has a remarkably hard time understanding some seemingly simple requests. And don’t even get me started on iCloud syncing.
TAGGED: Google, Apple
