Apple and the year ahead

by Dan Moren, Macworld.com   Dec 30, 2011 9:00 am Assuming apocalyptic doomsday predictions from South America don’t come to fruition, 2012 is poised to be a different kind of year for Apple. In 2011, the company rolled out significant updates to most of its products—including two major new operating system versions—and also introduced a new Web platform to glue all of its devices and platforms together. But the company also lost its most significant figure, Steve Jobs, and had a new man officially take the reins of the company.

What makes Siri special?

by David Daw, PCWorld   Oct 25, 2011 8:15 am If you ask Siri, the virtual personal assistant on the iPhone 4S, why it’s so great, it answers with disarming humility: “I am what I am.” COMPLETE COVERAGE iPhone 4S 16GB (AT&T) SIMILAR ARTICLES iPhone 4S review: It's a sure thing iPhone 4S: What you need to know Apple unveils iPhone 4S What Google's Rubin doesn't understand about Siri Five ways to improve Siri iOS 5 Review: Ambitious update rings in the changes But industry insiders say there’s a little more to it than that. Siri goes well beyond voice recognition, they say, by applying powerful artificial intelligence and statistical analysis to decipher the meaning behind questioners’ sometimes jumbled sentences. Add to that Siri’s dry wit and you have the kind of breakout hit that will propel new uses of similar technology on your phone, tablet, and even your PC, experts say.

Make custom tones for your iPhone

by Dan Moren, Macworld.com   Oct 20, 2011 8:20 am Among the multitude of features in iOS 5 is the ability to at last use custom sounds for alerts. Custom ringtones have been around for several years, but extending that feature to an iOS device’s other alerts, like voicemail or text messages, has been a feature long sought after by iPhone users. Until now, iOS device users have had to limit themselves to merely the limited—and often bizarre—tones offered by Apple.

Christian ZibregApple InciOS DevicesDiscussion (28) inShare October 5, 2011 at 7:44 am If selling your iPhone on eBay or great services like Gazelle are too cumbersome, Apple will now accept your used iPhone 4 and pay for it up to two hundred bucks, depending on its condition. Just head over to the Reuse and Recycle program at Apple’s site and hit the Get Started button underneath the “Get an Apple Gift Card for your old device” section. If your used iPhone 4 manages to fetch a cool $200, congrats – you just secured yourself a 16GB iPhone 4S free of charge (with a two-year contract). As part of yesterday’s reshuffling, the iPhone 4 is now available only with eight gigabytes of storage and priced at just $99. The iPhone 3GS, meanwhile, has gone free. Both older iPhone models require a two-year plan to fetch those prices. Apple is also offering the iPhone 4 and 3GS without a contract commitment for $549 and $375, respectively.

Apple iPhone 4S/5 Rumors: What Was Right, Wrong And Just Plain Crazy

  MATT BURNS posted 7 hours ago 17 Comments Rumors and speculation run wild prior to any Apple event and most often the announced product does not live up to the hype. That’s essentially what happened today. The Apple rumor mill promised an iPhone 5 with killer specs, a huge screen and nothing less than a built-in teleportation device. We got the iPhone 4S instead. Here’s what the interwebs got right and wrong. The Correct Rumors Extensive voice controls It’s called Siri. Apple feels these voice controls are essentially the next paradigm in personal computer. Android users will cry foul, though, because their mobile OS of choice has long featured similar functions. We also wouldn’t be surprised to see Microsoft fans make a couple comments, as Mango has some pretty extensive voice control features, too. Dual-mode GSM/CDMA radio Apple solved what must have been a frustrating supply chain issue and used a dual-mode GSM/CDMA radio for the iPhone 4S. Read the full article →
