Apple to Discontinue Google Maps on Mobile Devices

Apple vs. GoogleTech giant Apple is expected to announce that it will cease producing mobile products with Google Maps built in. Google is in the process of making 3D maps and maps that are visible offline. Both stocks are $580 per share, virtually tied in the stock markets, where they actively compete to dominate the tech industry.

Apple has sold millions upon millions of iPods, iPhones, iPads. Google is the world's largest search engine, which has a long list of records and achievements, including unveiling the world's first licensed car- without a driver!

Apple is expected to create it's own mapping app, but with the announced changes Google is planning, many industry observers agree that it will be truly difficult to take on Google Maps. Many will remember back in 2010 when Google introduced Streetview, a technology that provides panoramic views from positions along many streets in the world.
