Feel the heat from Korea: We Run Seoul 10k

Last Sunday, I’ve ran 10k from Nike We run Seoul race. Although my record wasn’t something to be proud of, the experience of being part of such a nationwide race will remain as a priceless memory.

Below is the official recap video for you to see what it was like in Seoul, Korea. Feel the Heat!!!

 

Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson is out

Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson, the CEO of the Aspen Institut,  is out. Below I put links to bookstores you could reach. For me, I pre-ordered book from iTunes, so I’m going to get e-book, but I’m also planning to buy in hardcover book in Korean. I wish to share more stories from Steve Jobs’ book later on. (Adios, Steve)

SIRI: Apple’s real weapon is coming

Not long after iPhone4S been out, Apple has hit us with a new app called SIRI. Siri is a new app that will be included with the iPhone 4S. This app is a new way to control your phone with your voice. Instead of just dictating a message to your phone, you can ask your iPhone to do stuff for you.

It Literally it understands the context of sentence you say and interact with you and this is much more advanced than Google voice action. Although the app is part of iOS5,  it is only available on the iPhone 4S. It works in English, French and German, and will extends its service in Korea, Chinese, Japanese by 2012.

 

If you watch the video above, SIRI acts like your personal assistant. Here are just a few of the things you can ask Siri to do:

  • Ask for a Reminder – At a specific time or place
  • Ask to send a text
  • Ask or the weather
  • Ask for information – Like a restaurant
  • Ask to schedule a meeting
  • Ask to send an email
  • Ask for someone’s number
  • Ask to set an alarm
  • Ask for directions
  • Ask to set a timer
  • Ask about your stocks
  • Ask to play a playlist
  • Ask about Siri

Here’s a fun experiment done by LAAN Lab. They hecked SIRI to door lock system so that you could freely close/open door with your voice commanded SMS. It takes a while to process, but given the thought it is only a initial experiement, it’s something to keep your eye on.

Shame on me, Shame on Apple!

I could not keep my promise: a post a day. I don’t want to make excuse out me all the time but I’ll have to say sorry this time.

The last couple of days has been the most crazy yet exciting times. At work, we had 24h of brainstorming, sharing ideas and came up with brilliant plans. Because of that, it’s going to make my words even hard to keep, but I will at least make extra time to keep up with my blog as well.

Thank you for all the supports with comment, I really appreciate that. I will really try to make the best of Sweet Ideas as possible.

By the way, Apple should be sorry about their new iPhone4s. What? The only difference is 800 pix camera resolution and price? Shame on Apple! I think people who were expecting Apple’s new & innovative move must have been disappointed.

I just wish to be it’s an counteract with Samsung lawsuit revenge. Hopefully after all the legal issues solved between the two companies, Apple will come up with much innovative iPhone5.
