When Apple Maps was unveiled, it came with the claim that their maps were "the most beautiful, powerful mapping service ever." Regardless of how the feature performed, that's an awful hard statement to back up since everything has its flaws. We just didn't know just how flawed it actually was.
After Apple CEO Tim Cook confessed that their maps aren't so great, the company's website changed their tune as well, going from "All of which may just make this app the most beautiful, powerful mapping service ever" to ""All in a beautiful vector-based interface that scales and zooms with ease." You can see the alteration they made in the thumbnails, as well as some pretty bad visuals of some famous U.S. landmarks.
