Mac Rumors claims that Apple is "turning to select Retail Store employees to help improve Maps for iOS 6." What a genius idea!
The rumor site says that multiple sources "indicated that participating stores will dedicate 40 hours of staff time per week, distributed among a number of employees, to manually examine Apple's mapping data in their areas and submit corrections and improvements." Such fun, isn't it?
They don't provide any more details except that one of the employees will be designated "a subject matter expert to oversee the team and receiving training on how the team will operate." A Maps Genius, folks. I hope they also give them sextants and a compass that you don't have to move like an idiot from time to time. And a Zagat guide.
I'm having a very hard time believing all this. How effective can this be? The problem with locations—some of them so bad that have been mocked by all of the internet except for the most ridiculous Apple fanboys—is just one.
