First of all I would like to say hello to all of the folks at www.http://soshitech.com for following me, nice blog people.

Right now onto the business of the day.

Rectums.

Hmm! That isn’t very nice is it? But what would you say if you lived in the town of Rectum in the Netherlands?

It s in Holland silly

Sadly I couldn’t find a picture of the good town of Rectum but I was using google maps and that is probably why.

The picture below is the best they could do, and their best, as we know is pretty crap unless they are promising not to give anyone our data, as they do when they ask for your phone number to ‘help’ them restore your gmail account if you get locked out of it and then in turn they give all of your precious private information to the NSA, the Israelis and the British. Way to go google they are the best at something – not respecting privacy!

Everyone but everyone, well ‘but’ me until today has been talking about the “balls up” I can say that here can’t I? That Apple have made with their maps after throwing their toys out of the pram in their spat with Google.

You know I have been using Apples computers since the day they made them with a hard shell and I loved them, no sorry I loved them, no that isn’t right I meant to type I ‘love’ them but that ‘d’ just keeps popping up!

In the old days when you bought an Apple computer you made a choice, not only to spend far too much money but also to help keep a small company alive, and in return you got reasonably good tech service and brilliant dealer service, free OS upgrades, copies of Apple programs thrown in with your purchase and everything else that you would expect from a company with a human face that not only liked (ooh that ‘d’ again) its customers but knew that it needed (‘d’) to keep its them.

Now that doesn’t seem to be the case and just because Google have a different business model to Apple and Google want to snoop on you find out what you like/do when using your, email, your computer, iPad equivalent or iPhone 5 equivalent and then once they have snooped enough serve you ‘personalised’ adverts and they are making their software available to everyone who wants to clone an iPhone. Apple have become all silly and got rid of the Google maps and replaced them with a collection of crap – again I can say crap here can’t I?

Here are my two farourite examples and a message to Apple, “for god’s sake grow up!”

Berlin antarctica

Apples wobbly Clifon Bridge

So what do the examples above say about Apple these days, my take is hasty, arrogant, and slap dash, what a difference to the Apple of the 1990’s, it just goes to prove that when something gets too big and secures too much power it isn’t healthy like local government and Microsoft in the 1990’s, now though Microsoft are a company who I have started think have some cool trendy ideas like say for instance SkyDrive which is Microsoft’s answer to GoogleDrive which is awful and you know they will read your stuff and the iCloud which I personally find almost impossible to use and I have no idea why because I have been using computers since the year dot.

When not snooping on us through the internet, recording pictures of the outside of our homes for Google.Maps, Street View and generally gathering as much information as they can about you and I so that they can offer us products and services based on our internet activity and worse the content of our emails, Google try to cover their less than savoury business practices by producing ‘interesting’ information, daft doodles on their home page, and all sorts of fluff.

Google is very keen to show how their ‘wonderful’ maps can be used to demonstrate all manner of things, the manner of things they had on their minds yesterday was odd, to say the least, as you can see below in their map that completely redraws Africa’s boundaries.

Ladies and Gentlemen and dear cuddly readers I give you the “Britons arrested abroad mapped,” map; for what it is worth which is slightly less than nothing I imagine.

One of Googles odder maps

Google released this ‘very informative’ map to show where Britons are arrested abroad? Quite why they wanted to do that I have no idea this was their little explanation.

“Data blog: More Britons are fleeing the long arm of the law to other countries. Find out how many and where.” (As if anyone is interested).

Well thanks for that Google the map was very enlightening, just one question! Since when has Africa been almost completely sub-divided by what Google label as the “Gulf of Guinea?” Beats me, but then I am only a Cat and not half as clever as the ‘intelligent ones’ at Google.
