Not long ago, the very thought of an electronic personal assistant was unfathomable, let alone one with the capabilities of Siri. Now those who rely on Siri could not imagine living without it. As all who have caught the Siri bug well know, they need only ask and Siri responds, placing phone calls, scheduling meetings or even reminding them to call mom — all without the wisecracks of a human assistant. Responding to the user’s natural, conversational voice, Siri simply asks for any additional information it might need. Did you forget to indicate when you might like a reminder? Siri will ask and later remind you quite promptly.
What makes this concept even better is the recent union of Siri and the new, third-generation iPad, combining two cutting-edge forms of technology in one great tablet. This bug is one that everyone will want to have. In fact, once acquired, there is no real cure for the Siri bug — and that is just as users want it!
Available since March 2012, the third-generation iPad is about to undergo an upgrade later this summer, in the form of a newly improved version of Siri. Yet this newest iPad already had several features that distinguished it enough from iPad 2 to make its purchase worthwhile. Ultra-sharp images provided by the Retina display, for instance, are definitely a step above the iPad 2. Powered by the A5X chip, the newest iPad’s higher graphics represent 2048-by-1536-pixel resolution instead of the 1024-by-768-pixel resolution offered in the previous version. These images look so real, you might want to reach out and touch them.
In addition, the 5-megapixel iSight camera is an upgrade as well, offering advanced optics. Excellent still photos are a given with this camera, but it also records 1080p HD video, making the third-generation iPad a comfortable choice even for those who are not necessarily technologically savvy, but still want high quality results.
However, it is the dictation feature built into the newest iPad, converting speech to text that provides the smooth segue into offering the newly improved Siri with this edition of the iPad. Including such enticing features as sports scores and movie recommendations, among others, Siri’s abilities just get better and better. Now all these features will be a mere voice command away. Siri has managed to make the iPad even more fun to use.
The power and convenience of voice-controlled software may be more than the average person can resist. For those already enamoured of the iPad, the Siri bug is sure to bite. For more information on our ipad offers visit our website here
