Don’t you love the often-misguided stereotypes people come up with? Perhaps especially in Apple land, with the famous Mac vs. PC commercials, these stereotypes are apparent. Hunch has put together a clever illustration of this which I think you’ll enjoy. Read more
The Porsche Design BlackBerry P9881 was announced back in October, but I have had no information of it coming to South Africa.
As a reminder the Porsche Design BlackBerry comes with a casing which is made from steel and leather, plus BlackBerry OS 7 and a single core 1GHz processor.
Other specifications on the Porsche Design BlackBerry P9881 include NFC, a 5 megapixel camera which can record HD video in 720p and a custom porsche design font and icons.

As you’re likely not aware, Apple’s new Siri technology was launched as a beta rather than a final release – a move which is especially rare for Apple. But why was Siri released as a beta? A recent blog post from Benoit Maison sheds some interesting light:
I worked on speech recognition with IBM Research for nearly six years. We Read more
Firstly, doing this is really a bad idea (but it is really cool). The reason why is it will use about 25% of available CPU performance just to present the screensaver in the background.
However, if you happy to sacrifice the performance drop or simply want to know how it’s done then I will show you. Read more
