I haven’t updated this blog in a really long time. But in a conversation with a friend today, I remembered it and started to browse through it. I came across an old blog article that talked about the future of SmartPhone applications and how more smarts will be added to the phones. As an example, I used Siri, a virtual personal assistant as an example.
Since then, Siri was purchased by Apple and we have not heard much from them since. You can still download their application on their website although I’m not sure if it’s been updated. However, Siri’s technology is clearly innovative and extremely user friendly. So now it begs the question, will it make a resurgence?
It’s been about a year since the Siri acquisition, and a new iPhone is coming up based on Apple’s regular iPhone release schedule. So one has to wonder if the iPhone 5 (or whatever it’s name will be) will include Siri’s capabilities built-in, hopefully with one year of further innovation.
Let me know your thoughts.
