iPhone 4S has extra infrared sensor for Siri raise-to-speak

If you have been wondering how Siri reacts so quickly when you "raise to speak", the answer is a tiny infrared LED that's added into the proximity sensor in the iPhone 4S. iFixIt discovered the sensor after a second look, determining that it shines brightly whenever the screen is activated. The light isn't visible to the human eye but it's there. And it's constantly letting Siri know how close your face is to your iPhone 4S.

LinkDots for iPhone and iPad

LinkDots for iPhone and iPad

LinkDots is a new puzzle game that is similar to the classic Dots game. The goal is to drop your dots on the grid in a manner that will result in more connections. Two adjacent dots will give 1 connection, 3 dots placed as a triangle will give 3 connections, and 4 dots placed as a square will give 6 connections.

I've played several round of LinkDots on the iPhone and I'm really enjoying it! I love puzzle games, especially when they are relatively challenging like LinkDots. It took a few games before I was able to win a match against one opponents and the game only gets more challenging against more opponents. You must strike the perfect balance between playing offensively and defensively.

Poll: Which email services are you using on your iPhone?

Poll: Which email services are you using on your iPhone?

So which email services are you using on your iPhone? Apple gives away iCloud's me.com addresses for free now, geeks love their Gmail (though not the app!), Yahoo! mail is still going strong, even if Yahoo! isn't, and Microsoft recently said 2 million iOS 5 users were using Hotmail, and growing at the rate of 100k a day now that it's easier to setup (go figure!). Then there's corporate Exchange, your ISP's email, home-spun servers, and all sorts of other stuff.
