Huge energy corporation, Halliburton ditching BlackBerry for iPhone

Halliburton, one of the world's largest energy corporations with over 70,000 employees worldwide, will be making a huge move away from BlackBerrys, to converting their employees to iPhones. For those still not convinced about the iPhone and iOS' place in enterprise, this decision comes after Halliburton did significant research into both Apple's platform and the Android, and decided Apple was the way to go.

Get Siri to launch apps, do translations, have a conversation, and more with AssistantExtensions for iPhone 4S [jailbreak]

AssistantExtensions is a jailbreak app for iPhone 4S that greatly enhances what you can do with Apple's Siri virtual assistant, including voice activation, app launching, translation, and more. Developers can even add their own, custom commands via a new plug-in architecture. That means, unlike the limited built-in functionality Apple provides, many more powerful, and interesting, commands become available.

iPhone 4S has special noise reduction hardware for SIRI, makes official iPhone 4 Siri port unlikely

iPhone 4S has special noise reduction hardware for SIRI, makes official iPhone 4 Siri port unlikely

It turns out that Apple's Siri voice assistant is enabled by special noise reduction hardware called earSmart, wired right into the Apple A5 processor. The technology is made by Audience, which has an earSmart-less chip in the iPhone 4. The difference is, the iPhone 4 chip was designed to reduce noise when speaking directly into the microphone (like when you're on a phone call), while the chip in the iPhone 4S is designed for a wider field of sound, so you could talk to your phone at arm's-length (as one tends to with Siri) and still benefit from noise cancellation. The bundling of earSmart with the processor explains why the A5 chip was so much bigger than expected, even after taking into account the second core. It also means that, if you're still desperately clinging to the hope that Apple will someday update the iPhone 4 with Siri functionality, now's the time to let go.

Warning: WD-40 will not fix your Home button, may damage your iPhone or iPad

Warning: WD-40 will not fix your Home button, may damage your iPhone or iPad

Do not -- repeat -- do NOT put WD-40 or any such substance in your iPhone or iPad -- it won't permenantly fix your Home button and may, in fact, damage it far worse. The idea that repeatedly squirting WD-40 into your iPhone or iPad Home button could fix responsiveness began floating around the internet last month and has gotten some attention -- that needs to be stopped immediately. Keep in mind we're huge fans of DIY repair here at iMore. We have a weekly column focused on DIY repair. But putting WD-40 is not DIY repair. It's dangerous, particularly for iPhones and iPads that are built with moving, plastic parts.

How Apple is defending against Samsung and Motorola's unfair, unreasonable, discriminatory patent attacks

How Apple is defending against Samsung and Motorola's unfair, unreasonable, discriminatory patent attacks

Apple is increasingly playing defense against lawsuits from Samsung and Motorola that seek to take iPhones and iPads off the shelves and out of stores. Apple is trying to do the same to their competitors, of course, but there's a subtle difference -- Samsung and Motorola are suing Apple over FRAND (Fair, Reasonable, And Non-Discriminatory) patents and are apparently seeking licensing that's anything but fair and reasonable, and may in fact be discriminatory.

FRAND patents are typically typically pledged as part of a standard, which makes them essential to a technology, the organizations that govern those standards require them to be equitably licensed back to everyone. That's the whole point of having standards. If you want your invention to become a standard, you let it be used as a standard.

Samsung makes fun of iPhone users, fails to show Galaxy Note features, in Super Bowl attack ad

Samsung makes fun of iPhone users, fails to show Galaxy Note features, in Super Bowl attack ad

Samsung has aired another of their good-natured iPhone attack ads, which should be an occasion for merriment and ego-prickly good fun. But once again the commercial feels like it missed it's mark. Or rather, the whole series of commercials still seem awkwardly in search of a mark. This one stars the latest in Samsung's broad-range of devices, each separate by a different Galaxy monicker and roughly 0.25-inches of screen size, the Galaxy Note. It's something that can't quite make up it's mind between being a phone and a tablet -- I'm not going to call it a phablet -- and that's either the best of both worlds... or the worst. The jury is still out. How big is it? 5.3-inches of HD Super AMOLED big, baby. (Yes, that's exactly inverse the iPhone's traditional 3.5-inches.)

It's also got a stylus.
