Tim Cook to Apple Maps Users: With ‘Phone’ Feature You Can Call Friends And Ask About Directions
CUPERTINO, CALIFORNIA (The Global Edition) — Apple CEO Tim Cook sent a official letter of explanation to unsatisfied Apple Maps users today, in which he accentuated the voice call feature of iPhone 5 that “allows a person to call someone and ask about directions”. Mr. Cook claims this feature has not been advertised enough in the new iPhone campaign, and that Apple is trying to move away from old-fashioned “Maps” application to an improved version of ‘phone call’ feature.
“In the age of social and inter-netted communication it is essential for technology leaders like Apple to pave the path to new ways of communication. We believe talking to your friends about directions is one of those”, said Mr. Cook.
Apple CEO spared no words to emphasize the importance of staying in touch with people “even if a person you are calling is not a very good friend, but just in case he or she knows how to get around town.”
First customer reactions show that majority of Apple Maps users are now realizing the potential of ‘calling a friend’:
“This is some groundbreaking stuff, it seems I’ve been using my iPhone wrong this whole time. For example, if I’m looking for a spot in the city, why would I want to bother with silly Maps app when I can just call a person living there and ask how to get there. It’s another ingenious Apple invention,” says Dan Carlson (24) of Santa Monica.
