Gadget Lab Show: Apple’s iPhone 5 Wins, Maps App Fails | Gadget Lab | Wired.com.

Apple’s iPhone 5 is just a few days old and, so far, it’s the best-selling iPhone ever. It’s also one of thefastest, most powerful handsets ever. It’s mighty stylish, too.

Our resident Apple reporter, Christina Bonnington, gets her hands on a new blacked-out iPhone 5 and, along with iPhone 4S owner Roberto Baldwin, compares the new and the old in this episode of the Gadget Lab Show. There’s a lot of newsy newness here — bigger display, thinner chassis, an aluminum panel replacing the back glass, the wonder of iOS 6 and, of course, the complete and utter fail that is Apple’s Maps app.

Christina and Roberto break down the good and the bad on the hardware and software. Take a look and stay tuned for Christina’s full, in-depth written review of both the iPhone 5 and iOS 6.

He says that one of Yahoo’s biggest problems over the past couple years has been “B-players” hiring “C-players” who were not “fired up to come to work” and were “tolerated too long.”

“I mean nobody gave a s— to come to Yahoo.”

Taking over a mess like that, says our source, “I’d want to review all the talent that comes in the doors, too.”

Mayer has worked hard in her first few weeks to improve Yahoo’s employee culture. She’s keeping the lights on later at the office, giving employees new smartphones, and made food free.

She’s also explained to Yahoos that with these privileges, they will be expected to work harder and faster than they did before.

Now, it seems she’s just making sure the company is staffed with people who will get the message…Read more
