Thread: Where is maps.apple.com?

Apparently there is no way to access an Apple map from a desktop computer.

I’d love to try pointing to an Apple map from a blog post, so we could do a realistic A-B comparison with Google maps, which of course can be accessed from anywhere from a web browser.

Pet peeve: Google Maps may have a serious problem with embedding. When I embed a bit of a map in a blog post it loses its position. For example, if you expand this headline you’ll see a map of Bandley Drive in Cupertino. (If you scroll around you’ll find it.)

That might seem like a small thing, but I’m kind of a perfectionist. I insist on having my maps actually show the place I’m trying to show you. 🙂

Anyway — it would be great to be able to try Apple Maps on my Mac or even a Google phone!

Update: Turns out that Apple maps redirect to Google on the desktop.
