As is the case with other Android 4.1 updates, the Galaxy Nexus will benefit from enhanced notifications, Google Now, smarter widgets, and more. Verizon has a support page set up for users which outlines all of the minutiae and might be worth a quick glance for those not up on their Jelly Bean game. It's frustrating for some that Verizon has taken this long to deploy 4.1 to the phone, especially considering that the carrier was the first in the U.S. to offer the then-cutting-edge phone. Nevertheless, the JRO03O update is finally here and ready to download. Galaxy Nexus owners are advised to connect to Wi-Fi and navigate to Settings > About Phone > System Updates to start the update process.
Even though it's only been available a few days, Apple's iOS 6 is already taking heat for its new Maps app, The new mobile operating system is the first to incorporate Apple's mapping technology instead anatomy of an axolotl iphone case of Google's popular Maps app, But the new technology is experiencing some hiccups, including misnamed cities, misplaced landmarks and absent mass transit directions, Mike Dobson, president of map consulting firm TeleMapics, has a a few harsh things to say on his blog about Apple's efforts so far, but he says the company still can fix the problems..
"Apple's data team seems to have munged together data from a large set of sources and assumed that somehow they would magically 'fit,'" Dobson wrote. "Sorry, but that often does not happen in the world of cartography. Poor Apple has no one to blame but themselves.". Not all hope is lost, Dobson says, but it's not going to be easy for Apple to fix its problems. First, Apple can't do everything with an algorithm. It will have to step back and change its approach to mapping in general, Dobson says. The company needs to hire mapping experts and other qualified people to fix the problem, as well as someone to oversee the development. It also needs to crowd source to improve the data quality, and Apple might even want to buy a company that specializes in integrating mapping with search services. The biggest mistake Apple could make, Dobson says, is hiring a big consulting firm instead of mapping experts.
