Viv is a more advanced AI that works by connecting to multiple sources of information and drawing responses right from the pools of data themselves. No more regurgitating web search results; this assistant is smarter, sleeker, and more accurate.

My first impressions with the Apple iPhone 4S Device

Apple iPhone 4S BoxThe Apple iPhone 4S was released on Friday, October 14th and was a major hit worldwide. It certainly got me interested as soon as I heard the news that it was going to be released.

The core features of the device are: the A5 processor (similar to the iPad 2), the 8-megapixel camera with auto focus and LED flash, 1080P video playback, adjusted antenna for twice the speed of the iPhone 4, Siri, and lots more. I was in line for device and was the first customer at my local corporate AT&T store to test it out!

The iPhone 4S is a beast of a device in my opinion. The processor is noticably faster than the iPhone 4 and it handles the multitasking feature a lot better. I am able to easily navigate through the Facebook application, have the Safari browser open, and have a movie in the background all at the same time. The best part is: there is no lag or signs of slowing down. I can’t even feel the device heating up! After the break you can see my first hands-on video with the iPhone 4S device.

Apple iCloud DatacenterThe new iPhone 4S is not merely an improvement on the already successful iPhone 4. It indicates a radical sleight of the hand in business focus for Apple, away from hardware and onto software and online services. In particular, the iCloud is now an integral feature, and perhaps the chief feature of the iPhone, from here on out.

Yes, Siri, which utilizes the iCloud, is here to stay. Of course, they may want to rethink the name, since this is too close to a widely used term for “ass” in Japanese. Nevertheless, the feature will irreversibly tie in the iPhone with the iCloud. Coupled with the new iOS5, millions will be stress testing the new operating system and the iCloud capabilities.

Apple iPhone 4SFinally, the moment that everyone was waiting for: The release of the next-generation iPhone device (well, sort of). The rumors circulating around the web never ceased to change opinions about what kind of handset Apple would release next. Well I’m here to put those rumors to rest. Here are the facts!

About few hours ago, Apple announced the all-new iPhone 4S at their “Let’s talk iPhone” keynote in Cupertino, California. This was not a shocking surprise to many; however, the lack of the expected iPhone 5 sure did catch their attention. It was originally rumored that Apple would release a lower-end handset and a higher end (upgrade). What ended up happening?
