IBM bans the use of Siri on its networks due to privacy concerns

If you work for IBM, you are welcome to bring your iPhone 4S to work with you but forget about using Apple’s voice driven digital assistant, Siri. IBM has banned the use of Siri on all of its networks due to concerns over privacy. Siri works by sending anything you ask it to a data center in North Carolina; after that, no one really knows exactly what happens with that data once it has been dealt with.

How Apple could provide direct document access in iOS 6

How Apple could provide direct document access in iOS 6

For a couple of years now, before every major release of iOS, I've begged and pleaded for a native iOS documents repository. Not a file system like OS X, but something that would do for documents what Photos.app and the photo picker do for images.

Right now, even absent a file system and hierarchy, it's still too complex, confusing, and unwieldy for users to remember, find, and attach documents in iOS. iOS 6 is a chance for Apple to change that, and a Files app and documents picker are simple, consistent, convenient ways to do it.

If Apple goes to a 4-inch iPhone, which way would you prefer they get there?

If Apple goes to a 4-inch iPhone, which way would you prefer they get there?

If Apple goes to a 4-inch iPhone, how should they do it?

While it seems increasingly likely Apple will be going with a bigger, close to 4-inch iPhone 5 screen, and that that screen will be close to a 16:9 aspect ratio (making it taller but not wider). However, until we see Tim Cook or Phil Schiller (or dare we hope, Jony Ive?) hold it up on stage, we still have time to dream.

Rather than go over all the options again here, I'll point you to Rene's excellent post on the 4-inch iPhone from a few days ago. Give it a look, then come back here and vote on which 4-inch screen option you'd most like Apple to go with? 2:3 at 960x640 stretched? 2:3 at 1920x1280 stretched? 9:5 at 640 x 1136 taller? 2:3 at 1092x728 bigger? 16:9 at 1280x720 bigger and taller? 3:4 at 1024x768 bigger and taller? Or do you deeply, truly still hope Apple sticks with the 3.5-inch iPhone that brought them to the dance in the first place?

Vote up top and tell me why in the comments!
