Motorola Hastily Cobbles Together Apple-Mocking Maps Ad

By Gary Cutlack on at

Motorola, the phone maker that's owned by Google and therefore really ought to be above this sort of thing, has put together an advert mocking Apple's disastrous decision to switch to Apple Maps.

The ad, which Motorola has hashtagged #iLost and distributed via its US Twitter account, shows the now familiar image of a laughably vague Apple Maps location guesstimate placed alongside a more accurate and useful image offered by the reliable old Google Maps, which Motorola includes as the default option on it many Android models.

It's a bit childish of a company like Motorola, especially given its less than glorious history of ruining Android with some terrible interface customisations of its own. But still quite funny. [CNET via Android Authority]
