NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- I am staying just a few blocks from Madison Square Garden in Manhattan and I swear to you, if I see Kanye West on these streets I will whip his ass for making me sit through that last night. If I didn't like Billy Joel so much I would have been out . . . instantly.And it's not that I don't like hip-hop and rap. I do. It's just that that wasn't hip-hop and rap. I'm not sure what it was. Kanye ought to stick to what he did toward the end when he actually showed incredible talent and sang. Surprisingly, he does have a beautiful voice, but I digress . . . . Like West, Apple ( AAPL) wakes up the morning after 12-12-12 the butt of America's jokes. Even a "Product Manager" at Facebook ( FB) took a shot Tweeting: Dear iFriends: you no longer have to get lost with a link to the big announcement from Google ( GOOG): Google Maps is now available for iPhone (via Google's Official blog). Just when I was starting to think, Gee, Apple Maps isn't so bad after all, Google does this. I played around with Google Maps on my iPhone this morning and, man, it just works . . . so much better. It's not even fair to compare it to Apple Maps. Google Maps has that smooth flow of an old friend -- it's Billy Joel -- whereas Apple Maps -- like Kanye West -- screams ice pic in forehead.
