361 Degrees Podcast - "Apple, Maps & Rafe's 6 Year Rule"

Published by at

The 361 Degrees Podcast has returned for a fourth season. In the first episode of the new season, we talk about Apple and industry cycles, asking whether the recent kerfuffle over Maps is indicative of a wider problem, and ponder what kind of impact this may have.

Episode description:

This week we catch-up on all the Apple news and ponder whether their recent maps problems show the 'perfect' image is beginning to slip. Back in season 2 we'd asked if Apple was the new Nokia... Not because they are suffering the same OS problems, but because eventually firm's past decisions begin to catch-up with them. Was the rushed tie-up with Google Maps before the original iPhone launch now hiding some unexpected down-sides? Cumulatively are the issues for consumers reaching the levels it will deter some buyers? If not now, how soon?

361 Degrees also now has an associated newsletter:
