I personally think Apple should use OpenStreetMap. I don't think there's any licensing issue as long as the app links back to the site. And, assuming the main reason of developing their own navigation app is to free them from Google, it's not like OpenStreetMap is a competitor to them. They can probably still put ads in it without violating the license.

The Slashdot that I'm reading has somebody saying "Apple lovers must be stopped" "retarded articles" and "BS Apple stories" and doesn't get modded Flamebait. It gets a +5. My comment that Google is gaming this system gets modded Flamebait. I think it illustrates my point. And I think this allowing single companies to direct the moderation will be the death of Slashdot.

They shouldn't market it as the decentralized network. They should market it as the network with no advertisements, no changing your settings at any given moment, and without that stupid timeline Facebook added in it's panic over Twitter. If you take the time, you can come up with a long list of things people hate about Facebook that aren't really necessary for a social network to exist.

Dead? No excuse for laying off work.
