I guess Apple isn't happy with silly people following its maps and has decided to allow a less lethal app on their phones:

Google Maps return to iPhone with new mobile app

The world's most popular online mapping system returned late Wednesday with the release of the Google Maps' iPhone app. The release comes nearly three months after Apple Inc.

Hay, at least they showed the sense necessary to admit defeat before there was an actual body count.

Some people were harmed yes... But for a typical corporation to blink it takes a minimum of 100 nuns and orphans to raise an eyebrow of caring. Kind of like Firestone and Ford playing Duck season vs. Rabbit season back in the 90s. Apple (i feel) caved in a timely fashion.

...Now stop arguing before I accidentally say something nice about Apple and have to be horsewhipped.
