I must say I'd like some of the services I get when I have my "Location" services switched on.

When I walk past a Cadwaladers Ice Cream shop I often get a message telling me that if I pop in withing five minutes I can have a free one!!!!!!

Now that sort of service would really revolutionise my punting choice :D

I saw an article on Sky News earlier where they were saying stealing personal details off Iphones and similar was a rapidly increasing crime so i hope everyone uses passwords that arent too easy to break, apparently many people still dont use any.

There really is big potential in this punting wise, i look forward to developments. :)

I didn't know that the Location Services were switched on when I got my new phone. Rather stupidly I expected all my services would be the same after a complete "backup and restore" from old to new.

So it as a surpise when the message arrived, but it alerted me to the situation and that was quickly resolved.

Yes, my phone is securely passworded, but than you for the reminder.

I quite like the Siri app. Tried it a few times texting Mrs Taggart and worked great. Just debating whether to say "text my boss and tell him he's wanker......." Well, he is!!!!!!!!!!

Despite what progress is made with technology, there will always be people who diss Apple because it's Apple. Frankly, I'd rather go back to paper and pen than use a Windows PC, but that's another story.

Overall, the 4S is a worthy upgrade to those of us who had the 2.5 or 3G phones.

Yes I watched that to, a hacker set up a fake wi-fi hotspot, and could fish smart phones that had left their wi-fi switched on.

If that Siri joke is true, it is a great stunt (I'd not expected that of apple though, they dont have that sense of humour and too afraid to offend the PC)

There is a good joke about SIMI (a chinese version of Siri) on youtube, search : mrbrownshow simi .

And if not already exists, I'd not be surprised if some hobbyist creates an escort-service-finder similar to Siri soon. (there must be an app for that).

and so we participated again in another viral apply-commercial

Fanbois... bah.

Just a word of warning for any punters that (like me) share their iTunes account with a "significant other".

Anyone with an iPhone authorised to your account can go into their app store/updates/purchased then select "Not on this Phone", they will then see any apps you may want to keep hidden from them. The only ways around this are to not share your iTunes but there are some useful paid apps that I let her have or to have a secondary account just for your private apps.

iPhones are brilliant but they can also bite your arse and beware, if you've already downloaded any such apps they can't currently be deleted from your purchase history but there's a growing movement lobbying Apple to remedy this.

As this is a techie type post I'm going to cross post it into the techie forum now.

Indeed, DG is right: Apple will be partial to just about any data you put on their devices.

It is just one other party that knows too much about you,

Your choice.

Eugh. That was a horrible 'article' to read, in that 'newspaper'.

All over the place, they've done that.

As I understand, Siri is a iPhone 4S feature designed to respond to natural human speech and react to it. So If you say "I'm hungry" - it'll find you a restaurant, and if you say "my boiler's broken" - it'll probably find you a plumber/heating engineer.

And yes, if you say "I'm horny" - it'll likely suggest escorts.

Not sure it's an 'easter egg' so much as a normal feature, with a slightly more human reaction than we've come to expect from computers.

It also answers a stupid question with a stupid answer, as proven by this page of other responses: http://shitthatsirisays.tumblr.com/

It even understands broad accents apparently. I'll believe it when I see it.

Much as I like to see a nice app, I'd rather see companies build proper mobile websites that work on all handsets without requiring a download of a separate app.

Especially where escorting, etc. is concerned.

Apple have a list of all the apps you've downloaded, and even email you an invoice (if it's a free app, it just says it was free, but you still get an invoice). As mentioned above, iTunes can show apps downloaded, free or paid. It's much more discreet not to need an app.

You don't need an app for everything. You access thousands of websites on your computer without needing a separate app for each. Mobile shouldn't be any different.

I 100% agree, a quality mobile site is much better.
