    It’s Alive! Google’s iOS Search App Shows Hints Of Self-Awareness

    It may not have a cool name like “Siri,” but you can’t accuse Google’s Voice Search app of lacking personality. Or self-awareness, for that matter. In case you missed it, Google upgraded its iOS search app on Tuesday with improved voice search functionality – it’s the closest iOS users can get to a “Google Now“-like experience.

  • Apple re-affirms its longstanding commitment to not being a gaming platform

    In a statement to the press today following the announcement of the newest MacBook Pros, which sport hybrid graphics and increased battery life, an Apple representative had this to say: We are proud to continue a decades-long commitment to not providing a compelling platform for gaming.

  • Apple announces Steve's Blood Pressure, available immediately

    Very funny. Unless it’s just an act and, like Kim Jong Il, the original Steve died years ago and this one is just a Life Model Decoy. With Apple’s new manufacturing techniques, they could probably pull it off… Read More

  • True iPhone killer: the BlackBerry Terminator

    “Put down your iPhone. You have 20 seconds to comply.”
    “I think you’d better do as he says, Mr. Jobs.”

Never had the new firmware or any pre-SDK pack. Certainly never signed any NDA. I find it interesting that a simple joke on the front of a minor at best repo can cause so many wakes. It is equivocally funny that… Read More
