voice-actions-vs-siri2-

All we hear from Apple users, and especially from the poor souls that chose an iPhone4S over a Galaxy Nexus or any of the other leading Android devices, is how cool Siri is. Siri that, Siri this, we get it, you love your virtual personal assistant. But Google has its own voice recognition technology – Google Voice Actions, which lets you send texts, fire up your GPS navigator, or go to a website simply by telling you phone to do it. Sure, it’s not Siri. Google Voice Actions is not designed to be an intelligent assistant, nor does Google claim…

droid-razr-maxx-vs-iphone-4s

No matter what newer smartphones come out, Apple still retains a dedicated group of fans who won’t budge for anything.

Raspberry Pi computer

Remember Raspberry Pi, the tiny $25 computer that’s launching very soon, and promises to revolutionize the world? It seems its GPU comprehensively beats the Tegra 2 GPU and is even twice as powerful as the iPhone 4S GPU. At the heart of the device it’s a Broadcom BCM2835 chip that comes with a 700 Mhz CPU, and this ultra-powerful GPU. A Broadcom employee had this to say about it: “I was on the team that designed the graphics core, so I’m a little biased here, but I genuinely believe we have the best mobile GPU team in the world at Broadcom…

  If there’s one thing tempting us to convert to the iPhone 4S, it would be Siri—the featured voice-activated personal assistant on the device. Well, almost. Before we could even wipe away the saliva from our faces (yes, we do admit it’s a really cool feature we’re jealous of), we received word that Android will be having its very own rival to Siri. This time, our own assistant has been called Majel, relating to Majel Barrett-Roddenberry who, for many die hard Star Trek fans remember as the voice of the Federation Computer. Beat that iPhone 4S! In theory, Majel is…

filestreaming

The year 2011 was really a rich year with better, stronger, and faster smartphones coming out. But, it didn’t stop at the phone specs. Samsung, Apple, and Motorola each took a step further and brought their own file streaming apps. What this means is that you could stream media back and forth between your phone and your HDTV, your laptop, or your PC. In the Samsung Galaxy S2, you’ve got AllShare. On the iPhone 4S, you have Airplay. On the Motorola Droid RAZR, MotoCast is the way. Although similar in function, not all these apps are the same. MotoCast The…
