Is Apple Losing Its Direction?

The following video is from Tuesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Rex Moore, along with analysts Joe Magyer from Motley Fool Inside Value and Jason Moser from Motley Fool One, discuss the top business and investing stories.

In this segment, the guys discuss whether the perception of Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL) new Apple Maps is worse than the reality. Should Apple partner with Google on maps? What does Apple Maps mean for investors? Joe thinks the Apple Maps debacle is costing Apple sales and flows through to the stock price; he's bearish on Apple and thinks Apple risks losing sales to Samsung. Jason is bulish on Apple and notes the company's attractive valuation and opportunities in mobile.

There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded, with more than 1,000% gains. However, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. The Motley Fool's senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, Eric Bleeker, is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple, and what opportunities are left for the company (and, more importantly, your portfolio) going forward.

    Since I have updated my iphone, the navigation application Telenav not only changed the fact that it was a one time charge to a yearly charge but it does not work effectively. The maps are upside down and not reliable. And with the original app, there were voice directions included...now they want to charge additionally for that.
