  • Voice recognition – has it come of age?

    22 October 2014, 3:00 am by: Roland B

    “Hey Siri, wake me up at 7 a.m.”…that’s about all I use Apple’s Siri for at the moment, short of asking what song is currently playing (which always amazes me). It’s not that voice recognition on the iPhone is bad – most of the time it…

  • Getting nothing done quickly with mobile data

    15 October 2014, 5:40 pm by: Ewan
