Warning: Apple Maps could be life-threatening

Die australische Polizei hat eine offizielle Warnung vor Apple Maps rausgeben müssen, weil sich mehrere Leute in den Outbacks verirret hatten und beinahe verdurstet wären. Mit Steve Jobs wäre das nicht passiert:

Using Apple's new maps system could be potentially life-threatening, police in Mildura, Australia, have warned, after a number of people trying to find the town of 30,000 people have become hopelessly lost in scorching temperatures.

One man was stranded for 24 hours last week in temperatures of up to 46 degrees centigrade, and at least three more have had to be rescued after following the directions given on Apple's new maps, which locate Mildura far from its actual position.
