Create/Update Notes with Siri

Posted by unlocker under News on Thursday May 3, 2012

It is recently discovered that one can create and update notes through Siri.
When Apple unveiled iPhone 4S’ personal voice assistant Siri, the company mentioned that it works with Notes app. However, little that people know is that Siri can be used to create and update notes.
One can tell Siri to “Make a new note” and gives a title to the note by simply saying, “Make a new note packing list.” Updating a note is also a breeze by simply ordering Siri to update your note and enumerating the contents. For example, “Update my note toothbrush, deodorant, book, tickets, camera.” If you have many notes, Siri will ask which note to update and will provide you with a list. The user can either tap the note to update or simply say the first line. The user can also view or check the notes by simply asking Siri to list the notes.
However, Siri cannot delete the note and share it via email. The user has to do those manually. However, it is always good to know that Siri can do more things with the assumption that it can understand what you are saying.

4-Inch Display and Unibody Case: New Look of iPhone 5

Posted by unlocker under iPhone Hacks on Thursday May 3, 2012

iPhone 5 could be sporting a new 4-inch display screen and a unibody case.
This is the findings of an analyst at Topeka Capital Market Brian White research based on his trip to Asia that aimed to find out the new specs and features of iPhone 5.
According to Brian White, “In our view, this will be the most significant iPhone upgrade with a four-inch screen and a new, sleek look that we believe will require a Unibody case. This new, sleek look will be the most important reason that consumers decide to upgrade to the iPhone 5, while we believe the addition of 4G will also attract buyers of the new device.”
Brian White added that suppliers from Asia such as Foxconn in China are rushing the production of the supplies in June, just in time for the August-September launch of the device.
Some of the highlights of White’s report are:
- Display issues have caused a bit of a bottleneck on supplies of the new iPad, but the shortages seem to be easing. Any small constraints on March quarter sales numbers would be compensated for by a boost to June quarter sales.
- Suppliers suggest that a smaller “iPad mini” is still in the works, but launch timing remains unknown.
- While the new iPad is not yet officially available in China, some resellers are already carrying the device. Speculation is pointing to a potential May release for the new iPad in China, although evidence for that timeframe beyond a recent regulatory approval appears scant.
There have been a lot of rumors about the new iPhone 5 such as it will be equipped with a variant of A5X chip, 1GB RAM in iPhone 4S/iPhone 4 casing.
