Siri: Helpful personal assistant or SERIAL APP KILLER?

Andrew Hart

Siri can be useful for somethings, my most frequent use is to turn all the alarms I've set off. Say 'disable all alarms' to Siri and it will turn off every alarm set in the clock app. Great timesaver!

'Bogus IT guys' slurp £1.3m from Barclays: Cybercops cuff 8 blokes

Why oh why does anything involving moving money not require 2 factor authentication. The employees at my local HSBC put a smart card in when unlocking their computer, surely this would stop this kind of attack?

Curse you, old person, for inventing computers!

@Sony NEVER learn

Surely the frame rate of 50fps in the UK and 60 in the US is less that they hate us pikey Brits and more about flickering seen when videoing under lights that flicker at the countries respective mains power frequencies??

Phantom power spec is 10ma max at 48v so only 0.48w, well within USB..

But if I were gonna spend £150+ I'd get the Roland Edirol UA25..

Thumb Up

@Sir Wiggum You have a choice

When you click Shutdown/Restart the normal 'Are you sure you want to Shutdown, if you don't do anything for a minute I'll shutdown on my own' dialoge box pops up but there's a new option (ticked by default) that says 'Reopen windows when logging back in'. It works very well!

Apple's 3G iPhone to launch 11 July

Andrew Hart


Even people who don't approve of apple smugness (myself included), have to be impressed at the iPhone 3G, I think it looks good enough to replace my trusty Vario III.
