Steve Jobs Death Confirmed – RIP Steve Jobs

Statement by Apple’s Board of Directors

CUPERTINO, Calif. — We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today.

Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.

His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts.

Steve Jobs was a visionary of the marketing and product launch world; his unique insights and inspirations made Apple what it is today, and what it will be for years to come. We at brandspiel.com send our thoughts and prayers to those close to Jobs and the entire Apple family.

  • Theoretical download speeds of 14.4Mbps (as opposed to 7.2 on the iPhone 4.) Interestingly, Schiller called out Motorola, LG, and HTC for calling these speeds “4G”.
  • World Phone (in other words, the one model will handle both GSM [like AT&T] and CDMA [like Verizon], and it should work well in most countries around the world)
  • 8 megapixel camera (Photo resolution: 3264 x 2448). The camera also takes advantage of image processing on the A5 chip, enabling stuff like Face detection and 26% more accurate white balance.
  • 1080p video recording with real-time noise reduction and video stabilization (!)
  • Voice-controlled personal assistant. You can ask things like “Will it rain in Cupertino?”, or “Can you find me a Greek Restaurant in Palo Alto?”, or “What’s the time in Paris?” and it’ll answer accordingly. This is the culmination of their purchase of Siri back in 2010 — and surprisingly enough, they’re keeping the “Siri” name.

Apple Siri Voice Recognition Assistant #letstalkiphone

One of the most innovative features put forward by Apple in this new iPhone 4s launch is the Siri voice recognition assistant. Supposedly one of the most flexible voice recognition systems on the planet Siri will accept commands like: 

“Find me a Greek restaurant in Palo Alto”

or “When am I free on Friday” “You are free after 12pm on Friday” “Please enter a meeting for Friday at 2pm with Phil” and Siri will book the appointment.

Siri is capable of searching the internet, booking appointments, reading texts via bluetooth, dailing, searching and taking notes. Siri is not only a system for taking voice to digital text but Siri also interprets data, pictures,  and information to reply to your questions.

Siri can define words Wolfram Alpha definitions, help you search for the best deals on shopping and check your stocks

Siri fully supports English, French and German; and can over come Accents and understands contextual language and slang
