- The voice of Siri has spoken and she's open to break-ins. Even if an iPhone 4S is locked with a password, a complete stranger can come up to your smartphone, press the button and give Siri a spoken command.
- The fourth annual Hipcricket Mobile Marketing Survey revealed that consumers—particularly smartphone owners—are turning to mobile retail sites as a critical tool for shopping. The survey found that smartphone owners are visiting mobile retail sites to: research prices (46 percent); search for coupons and offers (36 percent); research products (28 percent); and purchase products (13 percent).
- BASIS International Ltd. has taken legal action to preserve and protect their longstanding ownership of the BBx® trademarked operating system independent language, database, and toolset.
