Tim Cook announced a new upgraded iPhone 4. The new iPhone 4S. What on earth does the S stand for and why S. Yes these details are the minutia that keeps me up at night. Perhaps you are curious too? So after spending some time on the Apple site, I’ve come to the conclusion there are two reasons. First, the installed SIRI your iPhone becomes your own voice activated personal assistant. Definitely Sci-Fi here, just watch the video as the jogger moves his meeting up.
Or you can find your favorite restaurant. This feature is great for people who don’t want to spend the time looking on a browser of their phone. Just talk. I hope they’ve perfected the technology of hearing requests clearly. Ever been on hold with an electronic voice saying “Sorry I don’t understand” “Repeat request please”.
Second, the S stands for the new OS5 technology within it. Which when you think the operating system isn’t cool enough, it gets even better. Ok there are 200 new features with OS5 but I’ll list my top 3, Notification Center, iMessage, and Tab Browsing-(finally) within your iPhone or iPad. iMessage is great because you won’t have to go through your phone carrier for it. Yes! Notification Center keeps all updates together more organized, it’s similar to a tweetdeck type of service. Tab browsing iPad user’s know – enough said.
