    Tired of applications just asserting themselves into your personal information?

    We have seen so many instances where applications from the App Store have taken our information from our iPhone and just snatched it like it was their own. One of the most recent instances was with the popular social networking application Path, which as we reported, takes your contacts' information and uploads it to their own servers. Wouldn't you feel violated if that happened ...

    Apple: we want retina-sized apps now.

    I cannot tell you the countless times I have been disappointed after purchasing an application only to find that it was made for the standard resolution display. I personally wish that app developers would take the hint that Apple wants us to move to retina displays - since standard display resolution applications appear pixelated on the retina display. There are still, even ...

    How often do you use Wolfram Alpha with Siri?

    Siri is Apple's voice control system brought to a whole new level. It comes with not only voice recognition, but clever responses and dictation which make using Siri a pleasure and a very high demand for people not owning an iPhone 4S yet. With that being said, a Siri port for older iDevices is a highly anticipated event. But, have you ever taken the time to see where ...

    Is your computer life hectic? Are all of those extraneous windows floating around keeping you from concentrating?

    If a Mac OS X computer is one of your main tools of choice for getting work done, then while multitasking can be daunting. It isn't because Mac OS X has bad multitasking, it's because of the way that we perceive things. When we have a lot of Windows open at once, we get distracted - plain and simple. Coming to the rescue to help ...

    Check this out - animations for switching between applications.

    iOS, as we know, comes with the stock animation for application switching that kind of shuffles the applications around like each application is a card; the animation is horizontal by default. Now, thanks to a new jailbreak tweak dubbed Jepit by iOS developer VincenzoBB, we have the ability to customize our switching animation by just flipping a couple of switches. Above is a screenshot showing all of ...

    How would you like to have books in your Newsstand application?

    iOS 5 shipped with a new application - or should I say 'folder-looking-thing' that contains all of your magazines, newspapers, and subscriptions of that sort from Apple's online store. For many of us, it is the most useless application that we could have ever asked for because almost all of the subscriptions cost money - something that a lot of us don't feel the need to spend. For this reason, many tweaks have been invented to ...

    Does Siri take up too much room for you?

    If you feel like Siri has a large graphical user interface and you want to shrink it a little to make it appear smaller, then maybe it's time to put Siri on a diet with a new jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Ron Melkhior. The tweak has been dubbed TinyAssistant and it compresses the Siri GUI into an App Switcher-sized window.

    TinyAssistant allows you to lose the, "What can I help you with?" quote bubble and it really tightens ...

    So, you've downloaded Spire, but you want to get Siri functionality.

    Spire is the Siri GUI port that was brought to use by Grant Paul and Ryan Petrich. It works on any iOS 5 iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch (excluding the iPhone 4S since Siri is already there). It isn't a full port; it is a GUI that lacks Siri functionality until the user gets that functionality themselves. There are a few ways to get that functionality. One way is to set up your own Siri server and use your own (or someone else's) iPhone 4S as the go-to to using Siri. This means that you will need to update your own server with new iPhone 4S keys daily.

    If the daily routine of updating your server's keys sounds absolutely cumbersome to you, then there is the painless option of using Siri server hosts. Almost all of them support Spire. There are many ...
