Bug  Reminders and geo-fencing
Apple is clearly the best and only uses the best technology and shuns all else. I know this to be a fact, and so I am confused.

I have an iPhone because it's... well, because of the first sentence of this post really, it's just the most superior portable device. But why I use it is not important. What is important is that for some reason, Reminders doesn't meet my expectations.

On Monday, I created a reminder that said to get my old sketchbook when I get my wife's house. I marked it as ! important, but not !! or !!! important. When I arrived at the specified location, I was not reminded. Indeed, I had to remind myself. Fortunately, I succeeded at manually accomplishing this task. The following morning, as I was getting into my vehicle to go to work, I was reminded about the sketchbook.

This clearly isn't operating as intended. I should have been reminded as soon as I arrived at my destination. Why wasn't I? Second, iPhone should know that the location selected is also my home. It doesn't seem to know where I live anymore. Why doesn't it?

Please advise.

I'm told by highly dogmatic sources that cell phone GPS is nowhere near accurate enough for turn-by-turn directions, so you might have never gotten there, according to your phone's GPS.

That might be so with Android and Blackberry devices, but iPhone uses a superior GPS technology -- A-GPS that is actually better than everything else out there.

Too bad it's linked to Apple maps.
My logic is infallible. Resistance is futile.

Again, that is also superior. It is the most performant and least intrusive.

Are you sure? Someone also told me that he could navigate his truck in the dense fog using only his blackberry.

I'm not saying that's not possible, but the experience is superior with an Apple device. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that Retina-enabled™ devices greatly enhance the drive-by-gps-in-bad-weather experience.

This thread fills me with desire to see Retina-enabled™ fog!
