There's a bidding war going on over a crowd-sourced map application provider. Or so the rumor mill says. Credible sources are pointing to a competition between Google and Facebook for Waze.
In a bid to further the utility of Google Maps, the tech giant is adding live updated mass transit information for New York, Washington, D.C., and Salt Lake City that makes it easier for users to plan their trips.
The new frontier in digital mapping is indoors. Apple is joining the trend by buying Silicon Valley start-up WifiSLAM, which specializes in indoor mapping and geolocation technology.
iPhone users now have at least one less reason for getting lost. Google has released an iOS version of its Maps app, meaning that users can avoid using Apple's own, problem-plagued Maps.
