I’ve recently read that Apple has decided to ditch Google Maps from their mobile devices and will use a map program they have developed instead. Could this be another bold move from Apple or could they be shooting themselves in the foot? I personally greatly rely on Google Maps so I could see this as a deal breaker for some people, unless Apple could actually surpass the reliability, and ease of use of Google Maps. I don’t know if Steve Jobs would agree with Tim Cook here.

In addition, Apple is integrating Facebook into their phone and snubbed Google+. I don’t know if Steve Jobs would agree with Tim Cook here. I can see how Apple would drop Google, (being that the Android is the iPhone’s biggest rival) but Facebook?

I smell mobile war.
