So you think Apple is a loser in this? You remind me of the generals of the West scratching their heads when the generals in the East don't play by the rules! I'm betting Apple has been trying to get Google to update the Maps app for years, and Google says, no, much like IBM in the 70's and 80's, saying something like: We will make Maps for Android far better than Maps on iOS (giving them a perceived competitive advantage).

So Apple kicks them off the iOS platform, Google loses lots of money from less advertising $$$ coming in; and we get a better Google Maps app. How beautiful a chess move is that?

People's memories are very short, so this will not hurt Apple in the long run. Especially when all you pundits figure out what Apple actually did!

Is "too much screen time" really a problem?
Yes -- smartphone addiction is ruining relationships.
Yes -- but primarily due to parents' failure to regulate kids' use.
Possibly -- long-term effects on health are not yet known.
Not really -- lack of self-discipline and good judgement are the problems.
No -- angst over "screen time" is just the latest overreaction to technology.
No -- what matters is the quality of content, not the time spent viewing it.
