Taiwan Wants Military Bases Censored from Apple Maps

They're apparently supposed to be secret


Apple Maps is the subject of complaints again, this time from the Taiwanese defense ministry which has voiced its frustrations that secretive military sites are clearly visible in the iOS 6 mapping app. "We'll ask Apple to lower the resolution of satellite images of some confidential military establishments the way we've asked Google in the past" ministry spokesperson David Lo said this week, though Apple is apparently yet to have formally received a request to blur out the installations.
