Apple Maps Fail

Here’s how ridiculously Apple Maps sucks today…

BCC High School is located in Bethesda, MD. It’s not far from the location you see here on the map if you’re in San Diego or something, but it’s definitely nowhere near this spot, which is actually Northwood High School in Silver Spring.

So, it’s clearly marked as BCC. But it’s Northwood.

When you click the icon (a feature of Apple Maps I actually love a lot), the location screen shows the correct address for Northwood, but it’s labeled BCC. Students at either school might be able to get away with using this as an excuse for missing class at least once, right?

I can't make it to school today. I'm lost.

There’s a lot of buzz about how new edu­ca­tion plat­forms are mak­ing it easy to acquire the kind of skills that, tra­di­tion­al­ly, have been reserved for the hal­lowed halls of high­er edu­ca­tion. These ser­vices, whether it be Khan Acad­e­my …

This is great in every way.

Social Networking Value

Social Networking Value: Probably the first “social networker” (or at least the first one I encountered back in 1997 or so) is Chris Pirillo. My recent decision to buy Empire Avenue “stock” in Chris is evidence of how powerful what he has built online over the years has become. Because he also invested in Shawnblog, the masses who follow Chris (everywhere) saw this activity and, probably without and thought (since this happened in a matter of minutes), decided to also buy me.

Since it’s free, educational and fun, I think you should too!

IOS 4 bug on 3GS?

I think there’s definitely a bug in IOS for where you intermittently cannot hear through iphone. People can hear you but you can’t hear through the earpiece. You have to use Bluetooth or headphone and headphone is shown as an option even when not plugged in!

I’ve gotten this twice – yesterday, on my old iPhone 3GS and today on my brand new one.

I had an awesome experience dealing with Apple today

I had an awesome experience dealing with Apple today at the brand new Georgetown Apple Store location. My phone wouldn’t work in iPhone mode (only speaker or bluetooth) and it had “Headphones” as an option even though they weren’t plugged in.

They gave me a new phone.

Satisfied? You bet!
