The fact that Google Now is officially a part of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean hasn’t stopped Galaxy S3 owners from sideloading the app onto their device. Availability clearly isn’t an issue for those who know their way around, but there’s still one app that gets in the way of fully appreciating all that Google Now has to offer — Samsung’s S Voice.

Nokia vs Apple

Samsung attacked the iPhone 5 by releasing a print ad titled “It doesn’t take a genius,” which did not take long to become viral. Nobody expected Apple to officially respond to the ad, but the “fanboys” quickly came to the rescue, albeit with not much success (or logic, or common sense). Now there’s a new “ad” ready to become viral, coming from Nokia fans (or maybe Windows Phone fans).

Apple unveiled the new iPhone 5 a few days ago, but as usually, the company forgot to mention more details about its processor and RAM, although it did say that the new smartphone will pack a CPU that’s twice faster than the A5 found on the iPhone 4S and 22% smaller. Apple also said the iPhone 5’s GPU will offer twice the performance of its predecessor, again, without mentioning any details about it.
