Earlier today, Apple CEO Tim Cook took the highly unusual step of issuing a public apology for the fustercluck that is the company’s new map offering. That’s probably little consolation to anyone who upgraded to iOS 6 and has spent the days since utterly unable to get from point A to point B and/or lost somewhere in the wilderness, but hey, it’s a start.
Twitter naturally greeted his heartfelt mea culpa with a chorus of LOLs.
This Daily Show executive producer needs a hand, thanks:
Tim Cook, thank you for apologizing. Now do you mind giving me a ride home from wherever the hell I am? It’s a city, but that’s all I know.
