Rumor Has It: Will iOS 6 get a real Google Maps app soon (please)?

Nintendo's Wii U is probably going to be region-locked, to nobody's surprise. Soon you may be able to wake your phone up by yelling at it, and Apple Mapgate 2012 has an effect on someone very near and dear to our hearts.

Will Google save the day?

Is Google working on an iOS 6 Maps app?

If you had trouble finding this post, that's probably because you were using Apple's new Maps app. With the release of iOS 6, Apple replaced the awesome Google Maps with an app of its own. The result? A lot of frustrated, lost iPhone users.

Also this week, we check out a rumor that the Wii U will be region-locked, just like all the previous Nintendo consoles, and Nuance may be developing software that will allow you to wake up your phone by yelling at it. Great, just what we need.

Thanks for watching!
