Apple Said to Fire Maps Manager After Flaws Hurt IPhone 5

Eddy Cue is making some heads roll:

Richard Williamson, who oversaw the mapping team, was pushed out by Senior Vice President Eddy Cue, said the people, who asked not to be named because the information wasn’t yet public. Cue, who took over last month as part of a management shakeup, is seeking advice from outside mapping-technology experts and prodding digital maps provider TomTom to fix landmark and navigation data it shares with Apple.

Is it just in time or way too late? I just bought myself a new iPad Mini so Apple will manage some time, but the mapping experience is just horrible.
