    Much has been made about Siri and the virtual assistants voice recognition capabilities. But, a question hanging over the programs head has been how does it affect battery life and data consumption?

    Well, Samsung just lobbed another shot at Apple requesting the source code for the iPhone 4S in addition to information about Apple’s subsidy deals with Australian carriers. This comes after ...

    Steve Jobs' death inspired an incredible amount of creativity as fans, graphic designers, and publications scrambled to produce tributes to Jobs. Perhaps the most iconic tribute is that of Jobs silhouette etched into the traditional Apple logo instead of the bite.

    This simple, yet profound tribute now has an iPhone 4 and 4S mod thanks to a 19-year-old Apple fan from Hong Kong. The mod replaces the ...

    I wish I thought of this. I wish I had two iPad 2’s. I wish I had a friend who was generous (dumb) enough to lend me their iPad 2 so I could pull this costume off. But, alas I don’t.

    Which is why I commend Mark Rober and his commitment to Halloween. Rober, highlighted in a Gizmodo article, is a Mechanical Engineer for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the genius behind the iPad 2 hole-in-the-stomach costume. ...

    Apple submitted their Form 10-K filling last Wednesday with the SEC revealing the company has $81.57 billion in cash reserves, up from their previously disclosed $75 billion.

    This doesn't mean Apple is sitting on a cartoon like pile of dollar bills, rather the company has a combination of "cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities" valued at over $80 billion. Apple has added an additional $37.5 billion during 2011.

    Roughly 66% of Apple's ...

But, how much of that data is dedicated to social media and unsavory Facebook stalking habits? Onavo has the answer.
