Apple looking to hire 10 new engineers for their failing Maps app

AppleInsider are reporting that they noticed some job postings where the Cupertino-based company are looking for some engineers to work with their Maps team. Out of the ten jobs, nine of the engineers "will handle various programming duties, while one will be assigned to tackle navigation." In the job posting, Apple say that their Maps application is the "best mapping program on any mobile platform" - really, Apple?
