Revised iOS 5.0.1 update may make Siri port legally possible

Apple's revised iOS 5.0.1 update seems to have come with decrypted ramdisks, something which could make the port of Siri to other iOS devices legally possible. Before today’s firmware update, important files to get Siri working on other devices were encrypted in Apple’s file system. Decrypting...

Why is Siri in beta?

Why is Siri in beta?

Why was Siri, the iPhone 4S intelligent assistant, launched as a beta, something very unusual for Apple? Benoit Maison published a blog post which might just explain the reason. I worked on speech recognition with IBM Research for nearly six years. We participated in DARPA-sponsored research...

Siri ported to iPhone 4 via questionable jailbreak mod

Siri "pro-life bias" debunked

Siri "pro-life bias" debunked

TUAW's Chris Rawson did the inconceivable -- actually looking into claims that Apple's virtual assistant, Siri might have been programmed with a "pro-life bias" before posting them. And surprise, surprise, he found them to not even be worth the link-bait pixels they were posted with. Short...

Rather than just throwing up a quick "#BREAKSCLUSIVE: Cluzee brings Siri to Android!" post, Android Central's Phil Nickinson actually took the time to test it out, and while it shows potential, it turns out it doesn't yet show anywhere near Siri's polish on the iPhone 4S. It's not quick to...

Siri show and TellMe redux

Siri show and TellMe redux

Rene already commented on Microsoft's "We had TellMe before Apple had Siri" sob story, but it bears repeating: It’s amazing how decades later, Microsoft still doesn’t get it. A feature isn’t just a feature isn’t just a feature. It’s more than the sum of its technology and design. Android had...
