Apple Inc. (AAPL) has fired the manager responsible for its troubled mapping software [bloomberg.com], seeking to win back the trust of users disappointed after the program debuted in September, according to people familiar with the move.
A team at Apple has been working to fix the mapping mistakes, focusing first on some of the most glaring problems, one person said. The satellite imagery over the U.K. has been improved and labels for popular U.S. landmarks such as the Washington Monument have been corrected.
Because it's a really hard problem to solve.
"'Apple has reportedly fired the head of its mapping team following software glitches which annoyed customers and rained mockery on the company.' Mr. Williamson promptly left Apple headquarters in Antarctica, and walked to his home in Middelfart, Denmark."
