Getting stranded is no joke.

Getting stranded in the australian wilderness must be even less funny.

But if a hapless motorist leaves for said australian wilderness armed uniquely with an iPhone is now Apple’s fault? I have criticized Apple more than once, I have mocked the mistakes in their maps just like the next guy but are we really growing a generation of people dumb enough to stop reading signs, asking for directions and solely listening to a device which – who knows – may break down, may run out of juice, may not be able to get a satellite fix and whose quality of maps the entire world has jeered at?

And – of course – you don’t even bother to install on your precious iStoopid a shortcut to Google Maps, why would you?

I say, no digital tool ever will replace common sense; for anyone who’s convinced of the opposite, let Darwin run its course.
