Mike Dobson’s blog this week on the Apple Map’s launch has become the gold standard for solid technical analysis of the issues there. It’s great to see so many folks picking up on it (here, here, and here among many others) and Mike getting some exposure for his expertise. Truly could not have happened to a more deserving guy. Mike doesn’t write often but when he does, it is always worth reading.
But it’s one thing to be wise in retrospect, much harder to anticipate problems. That’s why it is worth re-reading (or reading for the first time) Mike’s comments on problems he anticipated for Apple when they announced Apple Maps at WWDC in June. They are dead on.
Second guessing is easy and not always appreciated. Forecasting accurately is what separates the pundits. Nice job, Mike
