iOS 5 Real Time Face Recognition




It was Apple, which made touchscreen based devices so popular that almost all the smartphones and tablets are now relying on the medium. Now, the Cupertino based company is all set to make the next iPhone 5 a hands-free device by integrating its next revolutionary voice based command interface via newly acquired company called Siri.

Apple took over a company named Siri in late last April, which clearly suggested that the iPhone maker is planning to introduce a new and alternative control that wiil be hands-free. According to the reliable sources, the iOS 5 is going to get Siri integrated as a core feature, and it is coming sooner than you expect. The post published on 9to5Mac has the screenshot of the “Assistant” feature coming integrated with the next iOS 5 firmware update.

The screenshot of iOS 5 Siri is accompanied with the iOS SDK’s hidden code describing voice based control of the iPhone’s location, contact list, and song metadata. The code unearthed by 9to5 mac also highlights “speaker” feature, which opens the door for further Nuance integration in the future Apple devices.
However, the assistant feature is currently in testing phase only, and may not be ready for the for Apple’s iPhone 5 releases. You can read more on the iOS 5 Siri integration by clicking over the link given below.

Pakistani woman kills, attempts to cook husband


KARACHI — Pakistani police on Thursday arrested a woman who had killed her husband and was attempting to cook his body parts after he planned to marry another woman without her permission.

The police arrested Zainab Bibi, 32, and her nephew Zaheer, 22, in the Shah Faisal colony of Pakistan's southern megacity Karachi, and recovered the bowl of flesh she planned to cook, said police chief for the area Nadeem Baig.
"They killed Ahmed Abbas, Zainab's husband, and chopped his body into pieces and were about to cook the flesh in a bowl," he told AFP, adding that the knife with which they killed the man had been recovered.
Television networks showed gruesome footage of the human flesh in a bowl ready for the stove.
A neighbour had alerted the police and investigations were ongoing, said Baig.
"There could be two factors behind her intention to cook the husband. One is to destroy the evidence and the other could be her immense hatred against him," over his plan to marry another woman, he said.
According to family law in the Islamic country, a man has to get permission from his first wife before his second marriage, but the law is rarely observed.

Warning: Be careful when using Facebook Apps & Games

   With cultural networking being so broadly consumed via civilians of everybody ages & saunters of life these days, protection has become an increasingly worrying effect, specially onto Facebook.
However, not everyone whom consumes the likes of Facebook, realises which information they are freely granting away towards third party app & toy developers or organisations.

Who reads privacy accounts and terms & moods within full thesedays anyway? Often they are so lengthy and consist so much legal jargon that processes it would rob far too long towards read & earn any actual feel of.

In fact, I doubt a very few of civilians actually read these t&c’s or privacy accounts at all.
Why you should be careful when consuming Facebook apps & games
This modern news bulletin posted via The Hacker News should be robbed as a severe alarm towards everybody Facebook users whom consume apps and toys onto Facebook.

Think ahead of granting permission towards Facebook apps & toys towards access your information. Whilst Facebook do not truthfully (or knowingly) allow your password or login items towards be granted towards app or toy developers, the modern column via The Hacker News would evoke programmers possess somehow located a distance towards withdraw users passwords, as soon as they’ve gave access towards their information.

There are a number of great apps & toys available onto Facebook, made via a number of top developers from circled the earth, but let’s not forget – anyone is licenced towards design a Facebook app. Do you mind handing again your personal information towards person you don’t know or that nobody’s ever heard of? Personally, I’d want towards keep my personal information as personal as possible – specially my online password(s)!

Think of your allies, teammates, & touches when consuming Facebook apps
This is another increasingly worrying thing approximately consuming Facebook apps & toys – without willingly or knowingly doing so, you can transmit nasty apps or relates towards your Facebook contacts. This can be done via you authorising/ consuming a Facebook app, ‘liking’ a web-page, or within a number of instances via merely clicking a relate located onto Facebook.

Before you know it, your Facebook touches see your pastime within their news feed and do the same. I’m sure via already you appreciate how hastily things can happen onto Facebook!

10 Things you don't know about NOKIA

4) The "Special" tone available to users of Nokia phones when receiving SMS (text messages) is actually Morse code for "SMS". Similarly, the "Ascending" SMS tone is Morse code for "Connecting People," Nokia's slogan. The "Standard" SMS tone is Morse code for "M" (Message).

5) The Nokia corporate font (typeface) is the AgfaMonotype Nokia Sans font, originally designed by Eric Spiekermann. Its mobile phone User's Guides Nokia mostly used the Agfa Rotis Sans font.

Apple Fixes Critical iPhone Battery Issues With iOS 5.0.1





Apple has released iOS 5.0.1, an update to its mobile OS that fixes a series of issues that drained the iPhone’s battery.

iOS 5.0.1 is the first update to Apple’s iOS 5, which brought the notifications tray, increased performance and iCloud to the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. In addition to fixing the iOS battery issue, 5.0.1. adds multitouch gestures to the original iPad, fixes iCloud bugs and improves voice recognition for Australian iPhone users. This is the first OS update available both via iTunes and over-the-air.

Not long after the release of the iPhone 4S, users began reporting that their phone’s batteries were draining faster than before. This issue affected not just iPhone 4S users though, but anybody using iOS 5. Apple eventually figured out that there were bugs in iOS 5 that were causing the battery drain and enlisted developers to help them find the bug.

On November 2, Apple admitted that iOS 5 had battery performance issues and announced that the company would fix the problem with iOS 5.0.1. Apple has released several betas of the updated OS in the last week.

Our testing of the beta has shown that iOS 5.0.1 provides a noticeable improvement to the iPhone’s battery life. We’re still testing the updated OS though, and will let you know what else we find.
