I’m guessing most of us didn’t have a clue what that was yesterday, but most of us have encountered it and wondered about it in Apple products.
As we reported recently, since Google raised the price to access its maps API, a lot of companies have switched to OpenStreetMap when adding geo-data into their services. Now it seems like Apple has joined the club, using OSM in the new iPhoto for iPad and iPhone. But as intrepid blogger Alistair Aitchison points out, Apple didn’t bother to credit the creators of these maps, and is using two-year-old, out-of-date information.
Apple today announced the latest version of its flagship software suite, iLife ’11, at its “Back to the Mac” event. The suite includes 2011 versions of iPhoto, iMovie, Garageband, and more.
