Reuters report: “Google Inc has made no move to provide Google Maps for the iPhone 5 after Apple Inc dropped the application in favor of a home-grown but controversial alternative, Google’s Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt said.” Apple launched its own mapping service earlier this month, but users are complaining about Apple’s new map service and would love to see Google Maps back on their iPhone. Earlier reports said that Google has submitted a Google Maps app to the App Store but Google now said to reporters in Tokyo that they didn’t. » Google Said: Google Maps Not Yet Submitted To The App Store

TechCrunch reported that Apple is going after people with experience working on Google Maps to develop its own product. According to TechCrunch’s source “Apple is pursuing a strategy of luring away Google Maps employees who helped develop the search giant’s product on contract, and many of those individuals seem eager to accept due in part to the opportunity Apple represents to build new product, instead of just doing “tedious updates” on a largely complete platform.» Apple Recruiting Ex-Google Maps Employees To Build Out iOS Maps

Apple has been taking a lot of heat regarding its new Maps application, which replaced Google Maps. Inaccuracies and missing features in the app have spawned a parody Tumblr and Twitter account, in addition to quite the uproar in the tech world. AndroidCentral noted that Motorola is the first to capitalize on the criticism, by creating an “iLost” ad (shown above). Their new advertisement just popped up on their Motorola’s Google+ page that shows the iPhone 5 and Motorola’s new Droid RAZR M both with their Maps app loaded. » Motorola “iLost” Ad: Wants To Prevent iOS 6 Maps Users To Becoming “iLost”

After Tim Cook’s usual talk about how Apple is doing, Phil Schiller took the stage to introduce the next generation iPhone. And as expected it’s called iPhone 5 and it looks just like the many leaked images we’ve seen the last couple of weeks. It’s 7.6 mm thick. That’s a thickness reduction of 18%. It’s also 20% lighter at just 112 grams. The iPhone 5 has a 4 inch retina display. This is the thinnest and lightest iPhone yet.

Much more after the break.
