Google’s $1.5B Market?

While I hate to harp on Apple’s map woes twice in one day, this interesting post notes that Apple has removed traffic, transit, and street view from 1.5 billion potential customers, and stripped one or more of those features from a total of 5 billion potential customers (these numbers represent the affected populations of countries where these data have changed, not iPhone owners).

If Google were to offer even just the standard, old Google Maps for iOS, and charge a buck for it, there’s a pretty nice market. Good luck with that thermonuclear war, boys.



  1. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same
    comment. Is there any way you can remove peopple from that service?
