iphone4 Siri


Apple disappointed many iPhone 4 owners with the news that Siri, the digital personal assistant technology, would only be available on the new iPhone 4S, and efforts quickly began to hack Siri onto the older smartphone. Developer Steve Troughton-Smith got the local app running with no problems, but faced Apple servers refusing to play ball with anything but the newest iPhone. Now, with the judicious application of some validation tokens from an iPhone 4S, its possible to get Siri on the iPhone 4 and iPod touch up and running, even without official support from Apple itself.

"It does require files from an iPhone 4S which are not ours to distribute, and it also requires a validation token from the iPhone 4S that has to be pulled live from a jailbroken iPhone 4S, and its about a 20-step process right now" Steve Troughton-Smith, developer

Meanwhile, a second video has already demonstrated Siri running on the iPod touch 4, though in this case there are some hardware limitations. Thats around the iPod microphone, however, which is less sensitive than that of the iPhone 4/4S: Siri demands a strong, clear voice if its going to pick up any commands

Still, You should not expect to see a public release of this particular Siri hack any time soon!

We hae got some great news for you, our dear Bada-loving friends. Samsung has just confirmed that it will be bringing the latest version of their proprietary OS, 2.0, to all the devices in its Bada lineup before this year has ended.

Have in mind though that due to hardware limitations some of the Wave smartphones will not get the full feature set that Bada 2.0 brings.

Epic 4G touch

Sprint has started rolling out a small update (EL29) for the Samsung Epic 4G Touch to fix one of the most annoying issues folks had with phones on the Now Network Carrier IQ integration. That "minor detail," described as "security update," is not the whole story aside from that, the new software also updates the calendar app, allowing users to dismiss multiple calendar alerts at once.

The Touch-screens technology Innovation is non-stopping, A new type of capacitive displays allows any type of button to protrude (pop-up) from a touchscreen on command. When no longer needed, the buttons drop back down seamlessly into the screen making it flat again.

Combining the best aspects of a touchscreen interface with physical keys, this Tactile Layer technology from Tactus could drive the final nail in the hardware QWERTY keyboard's coffin.


Well, Tactus uses microfluidic technology to create physical buttons that rise from the touchscreen to give users the experience or feeling of operating a physical keyboard. When no longer needed, the buttons recede back into the touchscreen, leaving no trace of their presence. Watch the Video below to know more.
