Apple Fires Manager over Troubled Maps App

Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images(CUPERTINO, Calif.) -- Apple has been firing top executives, and now another manager is out at Apple.

Richard Williamson, who was tasked with overseeing Apple's mobile mapping service, was fired shortly before Thanksgiving, the New York Times reports.
 
Even Apple admits its mapping software leaves something to be desired, and has told users to go elsewhere to find directions.  

Apple knew it had problems after it tried to replace Google Maps with its own on the iPhone and iPad, but its own app had streets mislabeled, images missing, and roads where, in real life, there are none.
