There has been a lot of talk on if the iPad 2 will get siri or not. It seems to meet the requirements a microphone and the A5 processor so why isn’t it there and will we ever see it? Well there is a reason we haven’t seen it yet and a giant IF of the iPad getting it. Siri is right now in Beta testing for everyone with the iPhone 4S to get rid of all the problems in it and make it even better and to make sure servers are ready for it which haven’t been doing to well because they have already crashed. Also right now Siri is the biggest if not the only selling point to get the new iPhone. So will we ever see it for the iPad 2? Maybe but probably not. I think Apple is going to actually have Siri for iPad as a selling point of the iPad 3. Also remember Apple views the iPad differe’t than the iPhone they don’t expect it to be everywhere and you to need voice controls for it which is probably the reason the iPhone 3Gs- iPhone 4 voice controls aren’t there. So I think we will see it in the next model and if we are lucky maybe in a software update when beta on the iPhone 4S is done.

A lot of buzz has been going around Find my Friends the last couple of weeks and I have gotten to use the service a lot and I am going to clear up some questions you might have about it! So let’s get started.
Does it always use my location?
NO! You may think this because how else would friends find you. No it doesn’t you see what happens when a friend launches the App it requests all the locations of their friends. Then they can choose to refresh to find it again or not. It only does it for a one time thing it doesn’t always monitor where you are your friends have to request it.
how do i disable people from finding me?
You of course can always make it so people will not see where you are and it seems people forget this exists that it always is on! All you have to do is go into the app and hit the me tab on the bottom. Than you can turn on the switch to hide from your followers meaning they won’t be able to see your location!
Those are most of the things I have been seeing around the internet and people asking me about. If you have a question you would like me to answer on the site or even add to here then comment on this post, send me a message on twitter @matthewjagiela, or even on Facebook!
