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.

Apple Care Support Site Revamped With New Features



Apple Care Support Site is finally revamped with a 24/7 chat and some other improvements and enhancements. The website should have been updated on August 12th, but somehow this happened only now.

The site features simpler interface with larger icons to help people find what they’re looking for easily. As I’ve mentioned above, the new support web page also gives users quick access to Apple Care agent 24/7 and this is probably the biggest improvement, since before the update you had to look through various FAQs to finally get the ability to talk with Apple representative.

According to the latest rumors, the revamped Apple Care Support Site is not yet available for all users but in a day or two it is expected to start working properly.

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.
