Google Voice better than Siri?

June 29, 2012

So is Google Search (by voice) in Android 4.0+ better than Siri. Please note that I'm not talking about S Voice but Google Voice Search.

Below is a video comparison made by TechnoBuffalo of both Siri and Google Search. In the description of the YouTube video, the jon4lakers says,

Facebook adds Find Friends Nearby- great way to add nearby friends

June 25, 2012
Facebook adds a new feature to Facebook called Find Friends Nearby. The app is a great way to perform what it should do. The point of this app is help you add new friends when you meet them. The app is not made to help you find friends who love close to you that have a Facebook account, instead both users need to have the webpage loaded on their mobile phones so that they are visible to each other.

You know when you have a good day out and meet new people whom you would like to be friends with. So instead of asking for their phone number and stuff, both of you open up the address on your phones and within seconds could have each other on your friend list.


Another great move by Facebook?

Get your pictures to show up as a slideshow in iOS notification center

June 22, 2012
Apple's notification center is always getting better and better, not by Apple, but by external developers who allow you to improve your notification center using simply by downloading a Cydia tweak. Today I would like to tell you about PictureFrameCenter, a widget that allows you to have a slideshow of your images in your notification center on iOS. The tweak is pretty cool to add a bit of extra taste to your notification center, which if your iDevice is jailbroken should probably be much more better than the rather plain one you get from Apple.

iOS 6 adds more privacy control

June 15, 2012
Privacy has always been an issue in the smartphone industry. Users are always worried that their data is being tracked down and stolen such as contacts, calendars, location, reminders, etc. With iOS 6, Apple has further improved privacy control by third party apps. As you probably already know, you usually get a popup asking if a certain app can use your location. The reason for this was explained by Steve Jobs in AllThingsD several years ago where he said he doesn't want a 14 year old boy to get stalked and have something bad happen to him because of his iPhone. He further added, "Privacy means people know what they are signing up for, in plain English and repeatedly."

Nevertheless, this was only implemented for location services in previous versions of iOS. But with iOS 6, a similar popup appears every time data about your contacts, calendars, reminders and photos are being accessed. Below is what Apple mentioned about the new improvements in privacy in their release note:
