-The world is a crazy place especially if you're using the new Apple Maps application, bridges look like rollercoasters, football stadiums have disappeared but the bigger fail is addresses that are simply wrong.
I used Apple Maps to find a bar where I was meeting friends.
It guided me here to Linden Street.

-If you have upgrader's remorse, there is a quick fix.
maps.google.com in your phone's browser and select add to home screen to create a shortcut.

by Apple Maps, just in case.
In San Francisco, I'm Sumi Das, CNET.com for CBS News.
