PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I don't think I've ever seen this before, but please correct me if I'm wrong. Samsung anf Google were supposed to unveil the Samsung Nexus Prime with Android Ice Cream Sandwich next week, but in a surprise announcement, the companies said that the press event is cancelled - out of respect for Steve Jobs. In the meantime, leaked specifications reveal that the Nexus Prime could be a real doozy.

I'm sorry, more than my word I cannot offer. It's pretty much a given though - you can't critisize Apple and still get early access to their stuff for reviews, or press invites. That's how Apple keeps a tight grip on the press, and ensures all early reviews are positive. I have dealt with Apple about this a lot, but of course, it's all confidential. I can undersrand you won't believe me, that's fine.

As for Siri - you just proved my point. You haven't used it, have no idea how it works, yet you automatically believe it's perfect and will change the world. You're a believer in the church of Apple.

I'm not. I'm a sceptic, with everything (except Fiona Apple). I want to actually use it first in a real-world environment. Then I'll judge.

And you're right, Apple did not invent Siri. They bought it.

So you are backtracking. You said people were threatened with being cutoff now you say Apple gives product previews to preferred reviewers - duh who doesn't?


If you are confused by Siri you might want to have a look at this - the pedigree is extremely impressive.

Forget you prejudices and embrace the new wherever it comes from. Phobias are so limiting.

Do you actually believe the crap you come out with because those last two sentences were the most narrow-minded and up-your-own-arse sentences I've read in a /long/ time.

Believe what you want in private, but don't start preaching to us that blind faith is better than practical experiment, like you are with Thom and his "use before reviewing" mentality.
