Apple Iphone 4S Siri video demo

Apple’s latest Iphone was launched this week.What do you like most about the Iphone 4S?

ONE THING that separates the Iphone 4S and the Iphone 4 is Siri, the voice controlled personal assistant, so here we take a look and see what it can and cannot do.

Siri comes with IOS 5, but if you’re upgrading from an Iphone 4 or older handset then Siri won’t be included. You can ask the talking software questions or tell it to carry out tasks on your Iphone 4S.

The software is very accurate most of the time, but as you’ll see in the video it isn’t quite perfect. It can do a lot of helpful things if you don’t mind talking to your Iphone. The biggest drawback and disappointment at the moment is the lack of location based services here in the UK.

Apple iPad 2 launched

Apple iPad 2

Apple baru saja me-launch iPad 2, tepatnya tulisan ini dipublikasikan 15 menit setelah acaranya selesai. Seperti yang sudah banyak dirumorkan, termasuk beberapa ‘gosip’ yg saya tulis di artikel saya, iPad mengusung beberapa teknologi baru.

iPad 2 memiliki dual-core chip, yg bernama Apple A5. Kecepatannya 2x lebih cepat, dan mampu menangani graphic 9x lebih cepat, tapi tetap menggunakan listrik seirit Apple A4. Jadi walaupun lebih kencang, iPad 2 tetap akan bisa digunakan selama 10 jam. Gyroscope juga sudah tersedia, seperti yang ditemukan di iPhone 4.

Kamera depan dan belakang sudah terintegrasi. Jadi, iPad 2 sudah masuk ke dalam environment Face Time. Langsung dari hari pertama, iPad 2 sudah bisa ber-Face Time ria dengan iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4g, dan Mac lainnya. Bersamaan dengan ini, iPad 2 sudah memiliki apps Photo Booth, sama persis seperti yang ada di komputer Apple lainnya. Tentunya dengan segala efek yang ada akan menambah serunya berfoto ria di iPad 2. Kamera yang di belakang bisa digunakan untuk merekam HD video, sedangkan yang di depan berkualitas VGA.

Desainnya lebih tipis 33%, dari 13mm menjadi 8mm, bahkan lebih tipis dari iPhone 4. Saking tipisnya, Apple meng-claim bahwa membuat case untuk iPad 2 sulit, sehingga mereka membuat cover untuk iPad 2. Oh iya, iPad 2 tersedia tak hanya dalam warna hitam, tapi juga putih. Continue reading…

Blackberry Vs Iphone 3G


Announced to start November 14-th this BlackBerry Storm positioned as “iPhone killer”. Well, will it? Let’s have a closer look for BlackBerry vs iPhone 3G battle.

Dimensions and designBlackBerry Storm is smaller vs iPhone but somehow thicker. iPhone looks IMHO more stylish. +1 for iPhone

Screen Like iPhone BlackBerry Storm has a bright and clear touch screen, but has a click-push button effect that brings a new tactile experience to a Gadget and Gizmos world.+1 for BlackBerry Storm

InterfaceBoth iPhone and BlackBerry Storm have touch screen user interfaces with horizontal and portrait views (both auto rotating), scrolling, pan and zoom options. iPhone’s interface looks somehow clear and better. +1 for iPhone

DialingSimilar to iPhone dialing screen with quick contacts dialing, BlackBerry Storm has a voice dialing option.+1 for BlackBerry Storm

MessagingAs iPhone BlackBerry Storm has a full bunch of messaging options, but has no iPhone’s biggest gaps – it has Copy-Paste option, message forwarding and delivery confirmation reports with no additional manipulations needed.+2 for BlackBerry Storm

BrowserBlackBerry Storm is equipped with a real-HTML browser quite similar iPhones. It has zooming options and page cashing. Actually at the moment there is no information if Storm’s browser is Flash capable while iPhone is known as none.

MediaBoth BlackBerry Storm and iPhone have music and video players, BlackBerry Storm is a little more useful while allows you to upload you MP3 stuff with no need to have iTunes or smht on the PC you are downloading from that makes the process easier. Actually, if you are iTunes fan – it’s a bug +Plus for buying iPhone decision, but if you aren’t – ability to get stuff not only by “iTuned” PC or Mac will make you choose BlackBerry Storm.

AppsBlackBerry Storm comes with a lot of preinstalled stuff. Well, it can be quite enough for you and you’ll never need for smth else. iPhone’s big +Plus it’s, sure, AppStore. BlackBerry-lovers will argue that it has a lot of applications for BlackBerry available, but friendly speaking, it is incomparable with Apple’s AppStore.+2 for iPhone

CameraBlackBerry Storm allows to make 3.2MPx vs iPhone out-of-date 2.0 MPx pictures and it records video. I should mention that BlackBerry Storm has built-in flash that makes this gadget’s camera much more useful.+2 for BlackBerry Storm

MapsBoth devices has maps using built-in GPS.

InterfacesBoth devices has mini-jack phones connector, BlackBerry Storm has microSD(TM)/SDHDA slot that gives you ability not just to increase available memory capacity (iPhone is 16Gb maximum), but use your computer card reader to simply download / upload all your stuff. And, sure, you can have more than one card (it’s 16Gb cards available in the market, but, hope, it will take not much time for 32 and more).+1 for BlackBerry Storm

Availability and PricesBoth gadgets are about $200 with all-that d**n plans, but BlackBerry Storm gives you ability to use any other 3G network – if its actually critical for you.

The ConclusionWell, simply counting we’ll get +4 for iPhone vs +7 for BlacvBerry Storm. But… what are these “pluses” equal? iPhone pluses for design, user interface, iTunes and AppStore vs BlackBerry Storm – for camera, copy-paste, messaging and flash card. It’s up to you what do you need more.
