12. Why can't they let the consumer decide

which app they want to use?

The iPhone only has room for a single map application and Apple will make sure that their app is the only one that can be used??? Didn't they learn anything from Microsoft's Internet Explorer and MS Office lawsuits? Sounds like Apple dictates control over their users.

My phone happily uses Bing, Google or any other map provider for its map data. The choice is mine and I can switch with just a few taps on the screen. Oh, and I don't need to jailbreak my phone to run an app that I write myself. My screen hasn't ever cracked. The "home" button still works after 2.5 years. I don't have to stand with one leg up in the air or wrap it in a special case to get a decent connection. My friends iPhone is always in for service. Glad I chose a better product.
