We will be reporting for you on 27th January, 2010.

The Voice of the iSlate!

On January 27th Apple is going to release a new product which will most probably change the way people have been interacting with their Computers and Mobile Phones. The release of the iSlate or iPad will mark the beginning of a whole new era of computing!

The iSlate is to be announced during an event to be held at San Francisco.

The iSlate is rumored to have great innovative features such as Huge Screen with IPS technology, iWork compatibility and more. Another feature should be that ,the iSlate must be completely Voice enabled with support for Speech recognition. If iWork is to be accustomed with the iSlate, then Speech recognition will help a lot of business users. Two microphones should be built in which would enhance the use of Skype and other such services. Just by speaking the name of an application, the iSlate must be compatible enough to pop it up.

Microsoft’s Project Natal has been designed to recognize words such as “Good Night” which would just switch it off.
The Apple Tablet must also be compatible with similar technologies.

Voice Input must work with any application which has text input available, just as the Nexus One. Music Search, Hands free Dialing, Posting Tweets by your voice,News,Sports and Weather and Battery Remaining could be great!

In just three days, we’ll find out whether the iSlate does support these features or not!

Apple Safari 5.0

The Macworld Expo is on January 27th and all eyes are on the Apple Tablet and iPhone OS 4.0. Till date the Apple Tablet is just a rumor and Apple has yet not claimed of any such device.

Apple even recently sent an email to journalists stating “come see our latest creation” . The word creation has been associated with either the iSlate or the iPhone OS version 4.0. People seem to have forgotten about Safari!

Currently Safari is in version 4.0 and lacks a bit of features when compared to modern browsers such as Chrome and Firefox. Safari 4 was announced by Apple during Feburary 2009.

Maybe Apple is looking foward to release a new version of Safari. Safari 5 would bring in the option of customization . Users could download themes, plugins etc from the App Store.

The rendering engine could get better and a few bugs could be addressed .
