    On September 19th, iOS received an update. More than 200 functions were added or improved, and among them, the Maps app. This thread was created to commemorate this defining moment in contemporary abstract art. Enjoy.

    Things like these make you wonder... do people still bug test things? How much splendor does a fast food restaurant need? I mean, seriously...

    "It doesn't take a genius to understand that a revolutionary feature like 'Samsung's Awesome Maps' will let you crash into a tree way better than iOS6's maps."

    Dude, that's New Vegas.

    Apple Maps predict the future - the nuclear holocaust is upon us! The smart users of this forums already have bags full of bottle caps.
