  • Quanta rumored to be building new 'inexpensive' MacBooks in Dec. quarter

    Headline "Quanta rumored to be building new 'inexpensive' MacBooks in Dec. quarter" First line in article: "Frequent Apple partner Quanta should soon see a surge in orders thanks to "new expensive notebooks" from the former …" So, is it inexpensive or expensive?

  • Siri on HomePod can now speak to you in French, German, Canadian English

    What’s Canadian English, eh?
    As far as I've noticed, there are handful of words that are pronounced slightly differently. And spelling generally follows British rules.

    If you want to know more, watch Strange Brew. ;)
    You misspelt "huh". ;-)
    Spelling follows Canadian rules, not British or American. There's some overlap both ways. We don't say "oot and aboot" so neither should Siri. We say kilometre properly, where it rhymes with pillowfeeter (and centimetre, and millimetre, and kilolitre, and …) rather than speedometer. Bob and Doug were lovable fictional characters, not learned men of elocution. ;-) 

    The best we can hope for is that Siri will say hockey, not 'ice haw-key', and she won't say MON-tree-all for Montréal, or trip over her digital lips when saying attempting to say Saskatchewan or Kapuskasing.

    It became a consumer electronics company and even dropped the word 'Computer' from its name with the iPod.
    Apple dropped 'Computer' from its name when iPhone was introduced January, 9, 2007.
