Fed up with clicking on links to get things done on the Internet? Here is good news for you.
Apple, which relieved you from the pushing-the-buttons-world with its touching devices, is coming once again to your rescue.
When Apple's iPhone 4S reaches the hands of the smartphone fans on Oct. 14, the talk of the town in the tech world will be nothing but a voice-controlled artificial-intelligence system called Siri which the device carries along with its over 200 features.
When it acquired the best mobile personal assistance software in 2010, Apple said: No more endless clicking on links and pages to get things done on the Internet. Delegate the work to Siri and relax while Siri takes care of it for you.
Apparently, Apple named its new smartphone as iPhone 4S, with S standing for the phone's best among many other features which puts it ahead of iPhone 4.
Siri answers the users' questions in a natural language. The technology is so intelligent that it understands colloquial phrasing and context of the input information too. Users can literally talk to Siri as a person.
A lot of devices can recognize the words you say. But the ability to understand what you mean and act on it, that's the breakthrough with Siri. It completely changes the way you think about what a phone can do, said Scott Forstall, Apple's senior vice president for iOS.
Users may also change the language for Siri. At launch, the feature will come with built-in support for English, German and French.
