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...

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.
Funny but I received the same notification on my iPad LTE from AT&T, but my Notification settings remain unchanged. Huh?
This movie will never be released, it will have to escape.
