Apple Fixes Australian Maps Issues

Apple has officially fixed the problem with its maps in Australia that were leading some drivers into a barren national Park with a distinct possibility of personal injury. According to Australian authorities, a number of people attempting to find a town in the Australian outback of 30,000 people called Mildura became lost in park and subject to high temperatures.

One Australian man was reportedly stranded for 24 hours in temperatures of up to 46°C and three others had to be rescued after becoming stranded from following Apple Maps. Apple has updated the error on its maps and no more people should become lost, assuming they apply the update.

"We've had at least four documented cases," senior sergeant Stephen Phelan said on Monday before Apple made the update. "The map puts it at least 70 kilometres (45 miles) from where it should be. We have had people bogged down in Sunset country."

An Australian in London...There’s a curious universality to Sean O’Neill’s music. Born and raised in Perth, Australia the singer now resides in London. Yet, listening to his music, such biographical details become unimportant. With that voice – whiskey soaked, saw dust sprinkled – his music has an oddly out of time feel, as though O’Neill had emerged from the photograph of the Old West. Releasing an EP in Australia in 20 ...
