iOS 6 Dumps Google Maps

And YouTube too. It's part of the war that's been slowly intensifying between Apple and Google. So that the latest operating system launched by the Cupertino-based tech giant has been bundled with a map application developed by Apple itself.

I have to say that I find the standard view pretty crappy. Steve would probably have said that it sucks and I doubt he would have allowed it to go through as it is. Granted that the 3D option looks pretty nice. As the following pic of Gotham City confirms.

What's the next step? Apple going into search?

Do You Know What A Priority is?

We have 161 days left to indicate to the Human Rights Committee what we intend to do to comply with their views. If it's easier for you that means we can send our response by February 27, 2013. That's a lot of time. The CPE exams begins on October 16. In 27 days. And if we don't do anything bold we will still fail about 1/3 of these kids.

We've been going nowhere for the past many years. So I would suggest we make a slight and temporary retreat on the BLS. At least until we fix the CPE exam disaster.

Indian PM Worth 10.73 Crore

A crore is 10 million so we're talking 107.30 million Indian rupees here. Or Rs61.16 million. And he's not exactly the best paid PM in the world either.

At $38 million Bill Clinton is worth about 20 times more than Manmohan Singh.

How much is our PM worth again? And are we getting a big enough bang for the bucks we're paying him every month? What about Berenger?
