Communications professionals say it was a masterful stroke to say "Welcome, Apple" instead of, e.g., "Thieving bastards steal OSM data". And even those who are not in the business of manipulating opinion and who don't see a clever plan behind every communication say that our reaction was cool.

I was at a local Mac/iOS developer meet-up last night, and was curious what the reaction would be.

It was exactly the above - people who make their living in the Apple sphere, who'd never heard of OSM before, thought it was an excellent way to react.
