vectors soundlike a great idea, but also a TON of work

bottom like, APPLE mas a completely amateurish childish asshat move when they deleted a far superior maps app from people's phones and replaced it with their maps app that currently is a piece of $#!%.

btw - if google maps a image based maps and apple maps are vector based, then once apple gets their $#!% together they could (in theory) have an equal quality product with much less bandwith requiment.

Isn't think Zak the same person that wrote the "Steve Job was the first to think of a Tablet PC" article? :/

Toms needs more techies and less apple fanboys writing their articles :p

Hey, I have a map app that covers the whole planet at 0.01% the amount of data Apple uses!
It displays a blue sphere...

Please let's not compare Apples with Googles. First show the same results, details and accuracy; THEN we compare who did it with less bandwidth usage.

"It's worth noting that Google Maps running on Android devices already run on vector-based graphics."

So native Map Apps on the respective OS run Vector. Where exactly is the news here.

Ohh I get it..

Apple copies Google and runs Maps on Vector!

Wait, so at the end the article says "It's worth noting that Google Maps running on Android devices already run on vector-based graphics." So their comparison wasn't really fair then? Since most users use maps from their mobile phones, wouldn't you compare that or at least both!?

It just proves the advancement of AndroidOS and it's superiority over iOS. Nothing more.

That bit at the end there was most telling. That Google has the more efficient vector maps program available, but was only willing to give it to their Android users and not to Apple. I can see that as a reason for Apple to want to create their own maps program even though they still had a license to use Google Maps. That, however, does not excuse Apple for pushing out a vastly inferior product. Espeasially when their fortune has been made by charging more for a "superior" user experience.

Google has Google maps, Google sky maps, and now Google is mapping the ocean. Seems like Google will map the moon and mars before apple finishes a decent state map.

What a crappy headline, at least they corrected their misleading statement at the very end. Google uses vector graphics on android too. The only reason they cant on iOS is because APPLE WONT LET THEM. Google maps on iOS is nothing more than going to maps.google.com and downloading them through HTTP. The "app" is basically a bookmark shortcut. They might as well say "Apple maps offers turn by turn navigation unlike Google..............when used exclusively on iOS devices lulz"
