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.

Pocket App for Mobile and Desktop

Lot would have already been discussed about this app / Plugin (Pocket – http://getpocket.com/) formerly called ReadItLater. This is an amazing app that keeps my reading websites across devices.

I have this in my Firefox plugin as an Addon in my laptop. As I visit new website which grabs my attention, I add that in the Pocket reading List. I have installed the android version in my mobile. So on the go what ever website I have added in the reading list before I continue reading it. When I use my IPad I continue with the same reading list.

It is also has a offline viewing feature. Were the website is downloaded for offline viewing when there is no Internet connection.

ubiquitous computing at its best!!
