Apple Maps Out a Google-Free Future

BY EVAN THOMAS ANCHOR NATHAN BYRNE There could be even less Google in your next iPhone. 9to5Mac reports Apple will drop Google Maps in favor of an in-house solution with iOS 6. The blog cites trusted sources, who say Apple’s maps will be faster and more reliable than Google’s. The application will be built on various mapping companies Apple acquired over the last few years, and the overhaul will come complete with a new icon. All Things Digital independently confirmed the rumors. One source said the new maps will “blow your head off.” “I’m not quite sure what that means, and the source in question declined to elaborate, but it’s likely a reference to the photorealistic 3-D mapping tech Apple acquired when it purchased C3 Technologies.” All Things Digital says C3’s mapping tech is based on software originally designed for missile targeting. An airborne array of cameras picks up images from various angles, which are crunched into the 3D images seen in this video from Cult of Mac. The visual polish is a nice touch, but TechCrunch says Apple wouldn’t have been able to cut ties with Google if it hadn’t had a database of its own. “While C3′s tech seems to have been used in building features, the purchase of white-label mapping service Placebase presumably allowed Apple to build up their store of map data to the point where they apparently feel comfortable giving Google the boot.” And GigaOM suggests Apple is indeed comfortable in distancing itself from a competitor. “This is

C2C Earth Changes and America

Subscribe @ for the biggest archive on Youtube. Futurist, teacher, and author Gordon-Michael Scallion(1) returned to give an update on his visions of upcoming Earth changes. Hurricane Katrina and the New Orleans tragedy are an example that the frequency and magnitude of such changes are on the rise, he said. The whole planet is heating up and going through a “metamorphosis” that is triggered by magnetic shifts and movements in the Earth’s core, he explained. The next big event will probably take place on the West Coast, which he eventually sees as breaking into a series of islands. As parts of America become submerged, he foresees new land masses arising, such as an area the size of Texas that will appear between Hawaii and the mainland. Development on this new land will probably not begin in earnest into the latter half of this century, he added. Scallion also mentioned a breakthrough in technology that would allow telescopes to clearly see the surfaces of planets in our solar system, as well as extrasolar bodies. He also shared a vision he had when visiting the Great Pyramid in Egypt. In the vision he learned the purpose of the pyramid was not as a tomb, but rather as an out-of-body machine that allowed people to astrally travel to other star systems. A great lens the size of a Volkswagen and other equipment that tuned in to the Earth’s vibrations were utilized in the process. He also noted that air-lifting devices that looked similar
