Mercedes-Benz has announced its plans to fully integrate the the driver's iPhone as well as the Siri assistant into future A-Class models. It'll be like having your own personal, mildly-incompetent HAL.
For a while Samsung couldn't decide whether to call its Galaxy Note tablet or a phone. Considering that its 5.3-inch screen splits the difference between an iPhone and a Galaxy Tab 7, that's not surprising.
The iPhone 4S was released a few weeks ago and its hallmark feature, Siri, has been poked, prodded, played with and patronised by everyone. Hell, even us. We made Siri talk to herself. We even talked dirty to her. And you know what, everybody has a Siri story! But which are the best?
When the first iPhone came out, the camera was an afterthought, only tossed in to feature match its competitors. Fast forward four years and it's an entirely different story, Apple has made it a point of emphasis and the camera in the iPhone 4S sh-sh-sh-shines.
Siri, the personal assistant extraordinaire, is one of the hallmark features of the iPhone 4S. But why oh why can she not be on the iPhone 4? She is, after all, just software. iPhone developer Steven Troughton-Smith thought the same thing and actually ported Siri over to the iPhone 4.
AnandTech has dug up some apparent benchmarks for the iPhone 4S, which they found around different benchmarking sites and believe to be true. Judging from the numbers, it seems like it'll be one of the most powerful mobile devices around.
