iPhone & iPad Live 185: Sexist Siri Santa


But, overall this was a great show especially the joking around regarding Georgia's failure to upgrade to iOS5 or the iPhone 4S (curious as she apparently is the Editor of an iOS blog lol). Perhaps even better Georgia's cool, and perhaps even cold, reactions to the jokes. Loosen up, and the listeners will feel more relaxed! :D

On the Nuance acquisition of vLingo -- it's not about the Sepeech Recognition. It's about Nuance thinking long term: they want to get into the Personal Assistant business. Apple is going to unceremoniously and quietly plug off Nuance soon and plug in some other Speech Recognizer.... More on this at my blog -- sirinotes.com
