Evolution of technology

Life is incomplete without technology and a mobile phone is just one of the many manifestations of technology. Like a Swiss Penknife, this device has multiple uses, such as calling, messaging, clicking pictures, weather forecast, etc. As technology progresses, these devices become smaller and smaller, adding multiple features into one small device.

It all begin in 1973,when Dr.Martin Cooper called a rival telecommunication company and said that he was calling via mobile phone. The phone weighed 1.1kg and gave 30min of talk time after 10 hours of recharging.

In addition to telephony, modern mobile phones also support a wide variety of other services such as text messaging, MMS, Internet access, short range wireless communications, gaming and more general computing capabilities are referred to as smartphones.  


A beautiful lady who leads you to victory-Siri

Introduced as a feature of iPhone 4S on October 14, 2011, Siri is included in all iOS devices released during or after October 2012.

To talk to Siri, hold down the Home button and you’ll hear two quick beeps and see “What can I help you with?” on the screen. Just begin speaking. The audio wave moves across your screen, letting you know Siri is listening and processing your request.

You can speak to Siri as you would to a person — in a natural voice with a conversational tone. If you want to know what the weather will be like tomorrow, simply say “What will the weather be like tomorrow? Or “Does it look like rain tomorrow?” Or even “Will I need an umbrella tomorrow?” No matter how you ask, Siri will tell you the forecast.

Siri works right out of the box, without any work on your part.


Application/Gadget review



Microsoft is focusing on Apple’s Siri digital assistant in one of the first Windows Phone 8.1 commercials.

Cortana is a fictional artificially intelligent character in the Halo video game series.

According to Microsoft, the Halo AI is exclusive for the US for now. However, there is work around to make Cortana work in India. Without further ado, here are the instructions:

1. Go to Settings, click on Region. In Country menu, select United States, and leave Regional at Match phone language. Restart your phone.

2. Reboot

3. After the Reboot, hit the capacitive Search key that seats besides Windows button. This should trigger setup wizard for Cortana.

Microsoft’s Cortana is a mash-up of Siri and Google Now. It can talk back and also deliver information you may find useful in advance. These suggestions are based on your usage pattern. We’ve noticed that Cortana catches Indian accent very well. You can ask Cortana to place a call, send an SMS, or open an app (including third-party apps).

She (Cortana) is doing well. However, it needs to improve in few areas to be a Siri competitor.
