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.

iPad App: Composite

Like actors with stage fright, I had a phobia called canvas fright.
The fear of not able to draw the exactly shape of given object led me to quit art. Then years later, a new tool called photoshop came out to the world, and changed the whole perspective of drawing and kept me aside to art ever since then.

Today, I’ve dare to introduce you a better app, an iPad app that could help you with draw whatever you see. It’s a not photo, but mimics the scenes that you see expressed in much more creative way.

You can download app here. Am I buying it? Yeapsolutely!
