Apple Maps vs Google Maps in Indonesia

September 17th, 2013 No comments

Map application definitely is the most important application on gadget, especially for them who love traveling. Maps is an application that i will always open before i plan to travel to another city / country i barely know. Since i always use Google Maps, i already familiar with all Google Maps features. Even i a little bit disappointed with new Google Maps (because some features has been removed), but so far it’s still the best maps application i can use for now. Since my brother bought a iPhone 4 couple weeks ago, i have a chance to compare Apple Maps vs Google Maps when i using it in my country, Indonesia. Okay, like i already estimate, Apple Maps still don’t have a chance to beat Google for this matter. Apple Maps arguably still very far inferior to Google Maps. Google Maps is better than Apple Maps in every aspects. Okay, to make this more obvious, i will discuss every aspects of both applications.

Map View Outlook

The first thing i want to compare is the overall map view outlook. As we can see that Apple Maps has better view, when we look at the map from far perspective.

As we can see together, Apple Maps give us a very good perspective because it has an outline for mall (orange color) and has several dots for hotels around it. Compared to Google Maps, it doesn’t show any location at all when viewed on far perspective. Read more…

A Guy Who Talking with Himself 20 Years Ago

Today while browsing on the internet, i found a very interesting video about a man who talking with himself 20 years ago. His name is Jeremiah. It’s kinda cool, how he made the video. When he 12 years old, Jeremiah ever made a video tape and ask several questions for himself in the future. After stored for more than 20 years, he finally open the tape and answer all the questions and made it into a conversation between him and himself 20 years ago. Just look the video below.

The story is cool. Isn’t it? What really amazed me is how could he had a thought that he would talk with himself 20 yeas ago. It’s really unimaginable. It’s interesting to imagine how i think 20 years ago and what i become now.
