Apple maps + STUPID people = Death (or… “against technology”)


Police have warned that inaccuracies in Apple Maps could be “life-threatening” to motorists in Australia’s searing heat. Officers in Mildura, Victoria, said they had had to assist drivers stranded after following the software’s directions. Some of the drivers had had no food or water for 24 hours.

“Tests on the mapping system by police confirm the mapping systems lists Mildura in the middle of the Murray Sunset National Park, approximately 70km [45 miles] away from the actual location of Mildura” (see photo) police said.

How stupid must one be to rely on a machine for his safety?

How much must someone trust machines (and not himself) so that he values a phone’s maps more than his own skills and knowledge?

NO. It is not Apple’s fault! Take a map. Learn how to read it. Know the area you travel to. Be a human. Not a FUCKING MACHINE. Idiots…

In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
