Former Microsoft CEO Bill Gates talks to ABC News' Bill Weir about his personal encounters with Steve Jobs.
Siri makes an appearance in one of the video finalists for Doritos' Crash The Super Bowl contest. Contestants create and submit their Doritos video ads for a chance to air during the Super Bowl halftime.
Make no mistake. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is not giving up his iPhone, but says that Android has bettered Apple in several ways.
Wozniak tells The Daily Beast that while his primary phone is an iPhone, he wishes it did all that his Android phone does.
He bemoans Siri performance, and praises Android's voice-recognition capabilities. Navigation is another area where Woz rules in favor of Android.
I'll have to back Woz on Siri. It is an ongoing source of disappointment.
Siri is amazing when it works, but infuriating when it doesn't. Siri must connect with Apple's servers for voice-recognition to work, and for whatever reason or reasons this connection fails far too frequently. Why must this be required for simple commands like calling contacts or setting an alarm? Siri often evokes surly.
Woz recently chose the Motorola Droid Razr over the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. He still recommends the iPhone for most users.
Check out my brief visual narrative of living with Siri failures.
Apple's current iPad 2 and iPhone 4S have been praised for their performance, but the next generation of iOS devices may offer a huge leap in capability.
AppleInsider picked up on an announcement from Imagination Technologies about its next-generation PowerVR Series6 GPU core family Tuesday. Imagination Technologies' chips have been used by Apple before in the iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and the Apple TV.
The Series6 GPU is said to deliver 20 times the performance of current processors, but five times more efficient.
It has been widely rumored that the next iPad could ship as early as March.
Two new iPad models are said to be joining the current iPad 2 for a multi-tablet strategy by Apple.
DigiTimes cites unnamed sources claiming Apple will unveil the two new iPads as early as January. Supposedly both will use dual-LED back-lit 9.7-inch displays with a 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution and likely a quad-core A6 processor.
The report dispels previous rumors of a smaller 7.85 inch iPad, but the say the current iPad 2 would soldier on at as a lower cost model to compete with the likes of Amazon's Kindle Fire.
In a market dominated by Android and Apple's iOS, why should smartphone buyers consider a Microsoft Windows Phone ?
Apple rather quietly launched its new music cloud service iTunes Match on Monday.
Costing $25 per year, the cloud service is supposed to make every song in a subscriber's iTunes library available online.
Matched songs can then be streamed or downloaded. To sign up for the service, users must update to iTunes 10.5.1.
Some attempting to subscribe were thwarted by messages that said the service was unavailable due to demand and were asked to check back later. There are also a few reports of iTunes Match not recognizing some songs among a few other complaints.
Meanwhile, Google has been preparing for a launch of its own. An announcement is set for Wednesday where Bloomberg reports Google is launching its own music store.
When the iPhone was Consumer Reports' highest rated smartphone it would not recommend it. Now the consumer group is recommending the iPhone 4S even though it ranks the device just behind its top Android competitors.
Android may have grown bigger than iOS from its rival Apple, and Android may hold its advantages over iOS. But Apple's mobile OS packs a few punches of its own beyond its new voice-assisted user interface Siri.
Not everyone wants an iPhone. Diehard Apple fans might assume this uprising is fueled by Cupertino angst, but there really are some compelling reasons to consider an Android device.
