Now Apple solves international disputes – brings peace between China and Japan


Don’t get me started on the iPhone 5 launch. Apparently the Geniuses were whooping everyone who went through the door this morning in a cheesy way that is part cheerleader and part Butlins’ Redcoat. Don’t they know we are British.

The best story though is around the launch of Apple Maps. Apparently…

One Twitter user pointed out that the app has also created two instances of the Senkaku, or Diaoyu, Islands. Japan and China have been fighting over ownership of that territory, leading the tweeter to quip that Apple may be trying to broker a deal by creating two versions of the islands.

Brilliant diplomacy from Apple and Tom Tom.

So why stop there. How about two Palestines? A pair of Falkland Islands? Maybe even they could create another Canary Islands for us Brits to take over.
