11/11/2011, Siri uses your voice to perform its tasks, but what about taking it to the next level by using your mind to control Siri? If you think that’s some sort of science fiction movie in the making, think again as some hackers have managed to find a way to get Siri to working simply by thinking out their commands.
11/10/2011, If you’ve ever wondered about who were the voices behind Apple’s Siri voice assistant, they’ve all remained a mystery at least until today. The voice of the UK English version of Siri, aka Daniel, has come forward to reveal himself as a man named Jon Briggs. In case you weren’t aware, unlike the US English version which is voiced by a female, the UK English version of Siri is voiced […]
11/09/2011, Siri is one of Apple’s latest and probably the most hyped up feature on the iPhone 4S. So much so that developers have attempted to port it over onto older iPhones, but if a recent SEC filing is to be believed, it seems that Amazon may want in on a Siri-like feature of their own too.
11/09/2011, After all the promising news of how well Siri works on non-iPhone 4S devices (i.e. the iPhone 4 and even the 3GS), and rumors about Apple secretly testing Siri with its own employees – it looks like it all those hopes will have to come crashing down. An iOS developer named Michael Steeber recently asked Apple about the chances of having a special paid version of iOS 5 with Siri […]
11/07/2011, Earlier this morning, we did talk about rumors of Siri for the iPhone 4 being tested by the good people over at Apple. Well, here is more interesting news for you who are really interested in just about where else Siri is going to make an appearance – jailbreak developer Ryan Petrich has just introduced a video that depicts Siri running on the iPhone 3GS. Before you decry the YouTube […]
11/07/2011, A few days ago, some very interesting rumors concerning Siri, Apple’s new voice assistant service for the iPhone 4S surfaced. According to the folks at jailbreaknation.com who claims to have a source close to Apple – the company is said to be testing Siri on devices other than the iPhone 4S, namely the iPhone 4 (and the iPad 2?). Apparently Apple has given its employees access to a special software […]
11/06/2011, In a recent appearance before a Senate subcommittee that investigates whether or not Google is abusing its dominant position on the web, Eric Schmidt has declared that he sees Apple’s voice-assistant named Siri as a “significant development” that could threaten Google. “Google has many strong competitors and we sometimes fail to anticipate the competitive threat posed by new methods of accessing information.” he says. Schmidt adds that his previous statements […]
11/04/2011, It seems that Apple’s supposed intelligent assistant, Siri, experienced some down time – perhaps working overtime proved too much even for a digital entity? Well, apparently the voice-bot’s service failed to work for a few hours last night before returning to action quite recently.
11/03/2011, By now, you probably know that Apple wants to enter the multi-billion dollars TV market, and Steve Job himself thought that he had “finally cracked it”, meaning that he believed to have found how to make the TV user experience much better than what we know today. We previously reported that such a TV may be powered by Siri, the digital assistant currently present in the iPhone 4S. This has […]
11/01/2011, With the possibility of Apple unleashing a TV upon the world starting to gain a bit more ground, thanks in part of a quote by Steve Jobs in his biography by Walter Isaacson, a Flickr user by the name of Guilherme Schasiepen has taken the liberty to draw up a concept image of what Apple’s TV could look like, along with some features we may or may not be seeing.
10/30/2011, When the iPhone 4S was released, developers worked on getting Siri ported to the iPhone 4 immediately. While they managed to get the app running on the phone, it couldn’t connect to Apple’s servers and had to resort to using alternatives such as Google or TellMe to get the job done. But now, those problems have been solved: some developers have managed to get the hacked version of Siri communicating […]
10/27/2011, There has been murmurings that Apple plans to launch an Apple television set perhaps next year. Rumors of such a product have been sprouting ever since a quote from Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs led many to believe that an Apple TV is in the works. But what so interesting about an Apple TV? Well apart from it probably sporting a sleek and elegant design that is Apple’s trademark, […]
10/25/2011, One of the most interesting features of the iPhone 4S is its Siri voice assistant that lets you ask questions or tell your phone what to do just by using voice commands. But one of the caveats about Siri is that you need to hold the iPhone in your hand in order to use it and if that irks you, ThinkGeek has got a solution for you.
10/24/2011, Siri here, Siri there, Siri everywhere – considering the popularity of iOS devices worldwide alongside the fact that most people do own iOS 5-compatible devices, you might soon hear Siri, the personal assistant who understands most of your logical questions, far more often than usual. It did not take long for fans to port Siri over to devices apart from the iPhone 4S, and here we are with a developer […]
