10 years of iPod

They grow up so fast: today is the 10 year anniversary of the iPod

Android iRis vs iPhone 4S Siri

Android Developers Create Siri Rival "Iris" in 8 Hours @ tom's guide

While Android boss Andy Rubin told an AsiaD audience that smartphone users should talk to people, not to their devices (essentially poking a stick as Apple's new Siri feature on the iPhone 4S), an Android development team named Dexetra was hard at work creating a rival product called "Iris."

As usual, Apple is actually getting free advertising
for their bold move to AI...

Same as before with iPod and iPad, the technology is not all new,
but the quality of implementation is made good enough
for (many) regular users, not only geeks...

So, will there now be plenty of (so and so :) "intelligent" agents
on personal computing and communicating devices,
same as there are plenty of touchscreen-only mobile devices?
You can bet on that...
