Looks like swiping diagonally, like Maps, is another feature Apple decided was no longer useful
Google Voice Search Vs. Siri: Who’s the Best iPhone Assistant?
By Michael Hession
With Google’s release of its brand new search app for iOS, we decided to put Siri in the ring with Voice Search—now available on your iPhone—to see if she could defend her own turf.
Looks like Google has destroyed Apple at it’s own game… thanks for coming out Siri
sharing power, good to see
Apple has released iOS 6.0.1 to iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch users. Apple says that this update includes various improvements and bug fixes.

Apple pundits will tell you what a blow it is to the Nexus 4 because of it’s lack of LTE and that it’s because the ‘devil is collecting’ or something like that… but let’s take a further look here.
A) Yes, no LTE sucks, but Google is right, outside the US there just is no standard for LTE spectrum. Apple itself has different versions of the Iphone 5 for different LTE bands. With the current limitations in baseband chip tech, you have to choose between pentaband and LTE. There is no phone that has both LTE and pentaband. Has Appleeveroffered a pentaband phone? No.
B) There’s no denying that LTE sucks up more battery; I’ve heard friends say their Iphone 5s aren’t even lasting a day with moderate usage.. this is subjective but compared to the 4/4S (without LTE), the Iphone 5 is definitely using up more battery.
C) Android has always catered to the T-Mobile AWS spectrum, you could say it all started on there with the G1.. where has Apple been? Why have they never offered anything on T-Mobile/AWS? It’d be easy enough for them to make a AWS version of the Iphone or, even better, a pentaband one… Makes you wonder if it’s because AT&T/Verizon aren’t letting them, who’s being dictated by the carriers now?
Just starting a new blog, The Flaming Apple, doesn’t seem too ambiguous, does it?
My goal here is not to bash/flame Apple, per say, but to intelligently dissect their moves from the viewpoint of an Android user ala blogs such as Daring Fireball, parislemon, the Loop, etc. I have great respect for those blogs, and in fact, am an avid reader of them. However I find there just isn’t a passionate Android blog similar to those and I’m here to change that.
As you can see this blog is pretty bare so any suggestions would be welcome; I am particularly interested in a logo so shoot any suggestions you have my way, something clean and simple is the order of the day.
Thanks for reading… and buckle up.
