How every Apple fan watches an Apple keynote.

With this week’s release of Apple’s new iOS 6 Apple removed Google Maps from the iPhone and introduced their own Maps app. The new Maps app lacks public transit directions and has a lot of other flaws that have left tech pundits wondering why Apple would take away such a strong app and replace it with such a… piece of crap. But did you know Apple made major changes to five more of their standard apps?
Apple released iOS 6 yesterday with over 200 new features for iPhone users. Despite what appears to be yet another win for the men and women in Cupertino, one casualty was spotted in the rollout: Declined Daniel, the young man getting dissed by every curious customer checking out Apple’s iOS website.
This looks like it would be about the best public transit apps for the iPhone after the iOS6 update, but it’s not. We have no Maps replacements for public transit directions. They’re probably in iTunes, maybe even highlighted in iOS 6 on iPhone 4Ses and iPhone 5s, but we don’t know them.
10:12: Jesus, the iPhone event isn’t til 1? Switch to Eastern Time already, like adults.
10:26: How am I supposed to do work when there’s a new iPhone coming?
10:37: Ugh just give me a new iPhone already. Put it in my mouth.
10:41: What do you guys think will be on this one? I think they’re bringing back real keyboards.
Yesterday Gizmodo got a hold of an Apple Store Genius Training Manual. They read it cover to cover and exposed its shocking techniques, like politeness and empathy. Today they announced they have found a leaked copy of a DiGiorno Pizza Training manual.
Sam Biddle Reports:
You may have seen the outrageous DiGiorno advertising that has been permeating televisions for years, claiming that their pizza is as good as any delivery place, even implying that a tiny nerdy kid could be invited into what appears to be a generic rap star’s slammin’ party. You would think DiGiorno knows better, right? You bet they do: DiGiorno knows exactly what it’s doing with our emotions. How do I know? I read DiGiorno’s secret training manual from cover to cover.
It’s a penetrating look inside DiGiorno: psychological mastery, banned words, role playing — you’ve never seen anything like it. THE HORROR!
The training manual I mysteriously ended up with is apparently the most up-to-date and runs a bizarre gamut of DiGiorno do’s and don’ts, even mentioning words that employees shouldn’t use like “fucking asshole” and lessons on how to capitalize on human emotions, like love of food.
A while back, Kotaku listed the 12 Best Games for Mac. Although they make some solid suggestions (I’m a little partial to Starcraft myself), there are some glaring omissions. Here are the real top titles.
1. Watching PC Users Struggle with Hot Corners
Arguably the greatest game on a Mac, thanks to the recently released DLC level, “Where the hell did Netflix just go”. After some PC luddite clumsily hits a Hot Corner, it’s a race against time. The goal is to see how long you will try and guide them to get back their windows before snatching away the mouse. You’ve really got to master the sneer of contempt at the end to get into the higher levels, though.
The head of Apple Retail, John Browett, recently decided it would be a good idea to cut back on staffing in the stores. While Apple backpedals, you can have fun applying Browett’s thinking to everything else in the world, with our Browett Makes It Better advice meme!
As the legal battle between Apple and Samsung rages on in court, new details of a patent issued to Steve Jobs and Apple have surfaced, leading many to wonder if the patent system should have a serious conversation about how it issues protection to innovators.
That conversation, as it turns out, may be covered in the unearthed patent.
Our crack team of patent specialists have found a patent issued to Steve Jobs that actually patents the patent issuing process. The patent was applied for by Jobs on his death bed and was awarded to Apple last week.
