Merging Data From Multiple Sources Is Hard

Remember this from a couple weeks ago? I exposed it as hogwash, but one of the statements rings true, but not in the way Google intended during that interview.
Says Brian McClendon;

“Merging data from multiple sources of truth is hard,” he said, “and mapping is the best example of that.”

Now he was digging at OpenStreetMap and the millions of “multiple sources” that that community has. But take that quote out of context and apply it to Apple. Rings a bit true, doesn’t it?
