Apple Siri – means laugh in tamil

Apple’s Siri is one of the path breaking software inventions. I wanted to try this myself today. I upgraded my iPad 3 to iOS 6. I know I don’t have a American accent. But still I thought I could get some of the popular searches working.

It was real fun and I had my day..

Ok. Back to some story..Siri in Tamil language(chennai India) means laugh. I had my laugh which is justifiable…

I searched for Rajinikanth..so popular here in India..here is the output.

I was surprised Siri works well with full sentences.. With apple which has big customer base in India, I guess they need to be more global. Lets wait and watch.

Camscanner for mobile

Gone are the days where we use a scanner for scanning a document for softcopy. Things have changed. If you are using a smart phone or tablet, let it be Android or IOS, Camscanner will replace your scanner.

i have been using in my smart phone and IPAD. It works like a charm!

The way it identifies if it is a photo or document is excellent. It adds magic colour to the document.

It can even process OCR.

It has lot of options of saving/sharing the scanned document. You can convert the document into a image or pdf. It also has options of sharing it through email, fax it or share it to any free upload facility website.

Here is a sample document that was scanned.

It also allows to save it as pdf.
