    It must be pretty serious (i.e. a lot of people), if the PD had to issue a press release...

    Apple is now blaming some of the Australian mapping info they got - apparently you can't have two locations with the same name or you're liable to be sent to the wrong (and potentially desolate and dangerous) one.

    Great. I guess Apple will next insist that every location that has another namesake will have to compete to keep it's name. That's so less inconvenient (and cheaper ) for Apple than fixing the app - or going back to Google.
