So. Funny story. Apple releases a phone that has a processor which finally matches its Android counterparts, an operating system that incorporates numerous features from Android and one – just one – truly new feature: an application called Siri that acts as a fairly effective virtual assistant.
Then, on October 19th, Android introduces a new operating system – and phone – that features advanced NFC technology, face recognition security, bluetooth-enabled gameplay, a built-in data monitor, built-in panoramic function, the most pixel-rich display on the U.S. market, a barometer for fast GPS-lock on and dozens of other tweaks that would take paragraphs to explain.
Nine days later, someone at Forbes says that Siri trumps all that. She is a "Google-killer."
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha...
Forbes Magazine has a seriously stupid article about how Siri – literally the iPhone 4S's only notable new feature – will eventually kill not just Android, but the entire Google company! Why? Because she "works" (I should hope so...), "has personality," (i.e., can imitate the computer in 2001: A Space Odyssey) "is hard to copy" (technically she IS a copy...), and has "potential to improve" (don't all apps?).
It is such a flaming pile of Apple fanboy rubbish that I seriously wonder how Forbes could ever have published it.
