Apple – A letter from Tim Cook on Maps

At Apple, we strive to make world-class products that deliver the best experience possible to our customers. With the launch of our new Maps last week, we fell short on this commitment. We are extremely sorry for the frustration this has caused our customers and we are doing everything we can to make Maps better.

Perspectives – I Love Solar Power But…

I completely agree with James. Better utilization of infrastructure is more environment friendly than having Solar Panels at the cost of clearing trees from the land.

I’m personally not crazy about clearing 171 acres in order to supply only 4% of the power at this facility.
