That iPhone 5 appeal (or, confessions of a swayed Galaxy S III owner)I’m an Android user. I love my Samsung Galaxy S III. So why am I punching my details into the iPhone 5 reservation site every day? For the past week or so I’ve been using a borrowed iPhone 5, tracking how it holds up – and where it falls short – to the Android experience I’ve grown accustomed to. During that time I’ve been frustrated by Maps, impressed by the camera, and generally had my expectations of iOS shaken up some. It’s always good to mix up the status-quo every so often, too, and along the way remember that there’s more than one way to skin a metaphorical cellular cat…

Tim Cook's apology shows that Apple cares, but still needs to fix problem

Last week I wrote an article criticizing Apple’s new Maps capability explaining why it was a deal-breaker for me and why I was leaving the iPhone. That article generated hundreds of comments (in agreement and disagreement), tweets, and emails to me and TUAW, some going so far as calling for me to be fired. Since that article was published, the criticisms of Maps have exploded, so much so that Tim Cook released a rare public apology from Apple and pointed users to mapping apps from competitors…

Secure browsing on iOS in Safari or iCab Mobile

A friend who values her privacy asked: “How do you delete Google search history on an iPhone?” There are two ways to do this, the first of which is to go to the Settings app, scroll down to ‘Safari’ and then click the ‘Clear History’ button as shown above.

The second can be done from inside Safari itself. Tap the ‘bookmarks’ icon on the toolbar, then select History (note: if you don’t see ‘History’ tap on whatever button is shown at the top-left until you see ‘Bookmarks’ at the top of the screen), then tap ‘Clear…

The nimble Betaworks team behind the new Digg has just released a new version of its iOS app that supports the iPad. It also adds a handy feature called “reading sync,” which syncs your scrolling position in an article between the iPhone and iPad, so you can pick up where you left off. You can now share article links via text message, and the navigation in the app has been simplified.
The Digg app is still very simple, but the experience is remarkably consistent with the desktop Web version, which has been scaled back a bit to match its iOS siblings…

Apple files patent application for 'intelligent automated assistant'

Engadget caught wind of the fact that Apple has filed a patent for an “intelligent automated assistant,” which sounds like the nice lady (or man) in your iPhone (or, as of iOS 6, iPad 3) called Siri. The application talks at length about a digital assistant controlled using speech (it’s Siri), which takes a user’s speech input (again, it’s Siri) and then fulfills the speaker’s request using digitized speech. In other words, a patent for Siri.

Unfortunately, because the patent is so general, there isn’t a whole lot of nuts-and-bolts talk about how Siri actually works — at least none that we didn’t know already…

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: September 28, 2012It’s Friday once again folks, with most of you already enjoying the weekend. Today, the iPhone 5 launched in 22 additional regions around the world, setting Apple’s plan to have it in over 100 countries by the end of the year on track. Apple CEO Tim Cook apologized for the sad state of Apple Maps today (recommending some other Maps apps in the process), and we took a closer look at his words in a new column. Even more surprising is the fact that the iOS App Store now features a download page specifically for other Maps applications…

What is the difference between Android and the iPhone, really? Where do Windows Phone and BlackBerry fit in? All these platforms do basically the same thing (connect a phone to the Internet and applications), but there are fundamental differences. Determining what kind of smartphone is right for you means knowing your mobile operating systems. (This is Part 5 in a 6-part series.)
Most consumers are at least somewhat familiar with the various smartphone operating systems. In the U…
