Apple CEO Apologizes For Maps Fiasco

I guess the heat finally got to Apple today as CEO Tim Cook posted an open letter apologizing for the mess that the new Maps application has become. Not only that, but taking a page out of RIM’s playbook (pun intended) came this paragraph:

While we’re improving Maps, you can try alternatives by downloading map apps from the App Store like Bing, MapQuest and Waze, or use Google or Nokia maps by going to their websites and creating an icon on your home screen to their web app.

Now, some of the alternatives are ones you have to pay for, but many are free. Still it’s an interesting gesture from Apple. What do you think? have they gone far enough? Post a comment and share your thoughts.
