Sign of the times

Joseph Phelps employees put up this sign on Old Howell Mountain Road about a month ago to help their customers find the winery on Taplin Road. Mitzi Inglis, marketing and public relations manager for the winery, said the Apple iMap feature on the newer iPhones is inaccurate and sends people to the wrong address for the winery. She said they have been working with Apple since January trying to fix this flaw in the iMap application but added that “it has been a nightmare” for the winery and its customers. Inglis said they “continue to work with Apple to fix this,” but added that customers can use Google Maps and Mapquest to find their way. The sign has made a big difference, and Inglis called it “a viable Band-Aid” for the problem. She said that eventually the software will get fixed. David Stoneberg photo
