Apple Updates Siri to Make Fun of Google Glass Fans



Apple has updated Siri recently with the ability to give smart responses to those who mock it with a command 'Okay Glass', which is originally used to control Google Glass. From now on, each time Siri hears these two words, it will reply with one of such phrases:

  • "Just so you know, I don't do anything when you blink at me."
  • "Stop trying to strap me to your forehead. It won't work."
  • "I think that glass is half empty."
  • "I'm not Glass. And I'm just fine with that."
  • "Very funny. I mean, not funny "ha-ha," but funny."
  • "Glass? I think you've got the wrong assistant."

If you have nothing better to do, check whether you have the latest version of Siri virtual assistant installed on your device and try to play with it on your own.

New iPads to unveil on September 10th?



According to information provided by Bloomberg, Apple will unveil both iPhones and new iPads on September 10th. Previously it was widely believed that the iPads will be presented on a special event in October.

Apple, based in Cupertino, California, plans to introduce new versions of its phone and tablet at a Sept. 10 event, a person familiar with the matter has said, and the company promised “several more game changers” in the product pipeline as it tries to fend off Samsung Electronics Co. and Chinese makers selling cheaper handsets.

However, the information was provided in a report concerning Apple opening it first retail store in Tokyo since 2005. Thus it may not be true. Recent reports state that Apple is not likely to prepare  iOS 7 for iPad, so its release will be held in October.

Apple will visit Russia to talk about iPhone



TechCrunch reports that Apple executives are visiting Russia to talk about Phone sales.

Although Apple has yet to confirm what iPhone handsets it will launch next, the meetings are a sign of how Apple may be preparing to launch new, possibly cheaper devices, to revisit a market that has seen demand for its products, but also one where it has faced challenges working with carriers, the presence of a crazily-priced grey market and, according to eager distributors, short supply issues that do not meet demand.

Apple will be sending its top executives to have a meeting with retailers in Russia. No details of the topics to be discussed are known.

Instagram Acquires Luma Camera App



Instagram has acquired the Luma Camera application and this is the main reason why it is now removed from the App Store.

Analysts predict - and this is quite obvious - that we shall see all of the above mentioned features embedded to Instagram very soon.

Apple patents interface for 3D objects creation



Apple is going to obtain a patent for 'Working with 3D objects'. It implies the technology of generating, modifying, and manipulating 3D objects with the help of 3D gesture inputs.

Three-dimensional objects can be modified using 3D gesture inputs. For example, a 3D object shown on a touch-sensitive display can be detected, and a 3D gesture input that includes a movement of a finger or a pointing device in proximity to a surface of the touch-sensitive display can be detected. Detecting the 3D gesture input can include measuring a distance between the finger or the pointing device and a surface of the display. The 3D object can be modified according to the 3D gesture input, and the updated 3D object can be shown on the touch-sensitive display.

The 3D object can be generated based on two types of inputs. The first is a touch or a two-dimensional (2D) gesture input. The second is 3D gesture input which implies detecting a movements in proximity to a surface of the screen.
