On the eve of the Mayan Apocalypse, three men gather to talk strategy, survival ... and smartphones. This week on the Pocketnow Weekly, we discuss what device we'd like at our side for the end of the world, before going for a quick dip in the nostalgia pool with a chat about running new Android software on old devices. After that, we knock around some Samsung Galaxy-family speculation, then dive headlong into a rundown of the merits and drawbacks of the new Samsung ATIV S, before touching on the tablet-smartphone interaction issue. Finally, we wrap it all up with some tablet speculation ...

The Nexus 4 launches, and a man in Pennsylvania does his best to keep Google's latest and greatest -and slipperiest- from sliding off tabletops. The Lumia 920 lands, and a man in Boston moves back into an old apartment called Windows Phone - but the place isn't the same as he left it. The Droid DNA launches, and all America is atwitter with talk of 1080p, nonremovable storage, and HTC making Sense out of Jelly Bean. And over in Romania, one man watches, waits, and wonders what all the fuss is about. That's about the shape of this week's installment of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast, on the ...

It's clear that Maps on iOS 6 is bad. The list of complaints is huge, and the fact that Apple's own CEO, Tim Cook felt a need to apologize is a clear sign that things aren't good. Cook linked to some third-party solutions in his apology, but the apps offered are either paid or simply not as reliable as Google maps. The great thing is that this hasn't stopped developers. We just ran into this neat Google Maps client called ClassicMap that looks almost identical to Maps on iOS 6, but that's powered by Google. Keep in mind that this is a version 1.0 though, so don't expect Street View, ...
