Well I'm on an iPad 3 and opted for an Otterbox Defender case rather than extended Apple Care. Plus my old Mac is no longer compatible with iOS so I can't back up and restore (not that I'd really want to bother with all that, especially as last time the process ultimately failed and I lost a lot of stuff.)Anyway, last night as I was watching a trailer for What We do in the Shadows on YouTube, Siri suddenly interrupted the action to say, "Sorry, I didn't quite get that."
Yeah, too bad there is no Portrait Mode orientation with the Brydge (because Instagram.) Logitech makes a pretty decent Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for the iPad Air. Not all the bells and whistles as the Brydge but does support Portrait and just over $50 after shipping.
I selected Male, the voice sounded more natural to me. For some reason the Female is still very synthetic in American English.
I thought Siri was much improved in iOS 8 but after the last update it's really FUBAR. No longer respends to "Hey Siri," and when I manually woke him up to ask "What are your new features?" the reply was "Here's what I can do now:" And that was it.
Same problem on my iPad 3, even after update. Guess this is what is being refered to as the "text selection bug."Overall responsiveness still terribly lacking.iOS 8 sucks donkey balls.
From this article, as has been mentioned previously: "GTAT was unable to create sapphire at the 262-kilogram boule size that it had originally agreed to produce." Sorry if this has been discussed before, I must have missed it. What would the dimensions be of such a boule? Can't help wondering how big a sheet of sapphire might be produced from one of these...
As a resident of NYC who travels upstate regularly, I find Apple's Maps to be utterly unusable. When seeking walking directions to the surrounding boroughs it will direct me to routes by ferry (with no way to override), when there are dozens of multiuse bridges encircling Manhattan. Searching for directions upstate, Maps cannot accurately pick up my location over GPS, when Google Maps does. Not to mention that Google offers turn by turn cycling routes that perform...
Phil didn't mention how much this new thinner iPad weighs. The first iPad Air was just about a pound, right? And what is the difference between the new [rear facing] camera on the iPad Air 2 and that of the iPhone 6?
Funny but just a few weeks ago I noticed something different about my iPad but couldn't put my finger on it right away. Finally It dawned on me that the status bar read LTE rather than 4G. There had been no prior announcement that LTE was coming to this hick town in upstate NY and to date the coverage map does not indicate that we have it. But even the two lousy bars of reception I get gives me download speeds of 24Mbps and uploads about half that, woohoo!
Anybody know whether Safari for iOS 7 will enable full screen on the iPad? Thanks.
