    Hey everyone

    I just downloaded OSX Mavericks and fired up the Maps app just to check how good they are...and to my surprise, they look just like HERE maps, ditto except for the standard view where they have changed the color scheme a bit. I even checked their 3D maps for san francisco and new york and it just left me baffled. Has anyone else noticed this or is it just me?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yeah, that's what I thought too but these maps look a lot like HERE, especially the 3D ones.

    How do we know is not the other way around? iOS7 is the one almost copying WP8.

    it's a joke. Apple doesn't innovate, they sue.

    I believe the correct term is "Innovation by Litigation".
