People downloaded Google Maps 10 million times in 48 hours

Last week, the new Google Maps app became available on iPhones, ending the longest three months in the history of modern civilization. Anticipation had built up as the app's launch approached, thanks in large part to a disappointing maps feature that came with the Apple's new operating system. It was so bad, in fact, that Apple CEO Tim Cook issued a public apology on behalf of the company. Google came to the rescue, though, and launched a competing maps app last week. It was downloaded more than 10 million times in the first 48 hours it was avaible. For those of you who are too lazy to do the long division, that's, like... a lot per second. [USA Today]
