Pretty sure Apple will crack down on this soon.

KingPin4490d ago

well theyd want to. no doubt about that. but once anything is on the internet, its a free for all.

i remember once upon a time they were going to stop downloading of illegal mp3s. yeah, that didnt go so well.

Speed-Racer4490d ago

Hahahhahahah

They would need to come up with a really advanced encryption method to pass the data if they want to protect Siri, and have alternatives every time hackers break it. I'd be pissed if I was an iPhone 4S owner, because that's pretty much the only of few things that really differentiate it from the iPhone 4.

gaffyh4490d ago

You know what would be really annoying, if this runs on other phones without having to connect to the internet... because that is a pain.

RurouniKaze4489d ago

you foolish mortal. The only reason Siri works so well is because the workload is done via an apple server which receives its info from the phone via the internet. I hope you feel like shit for having a brain like shit. I SAID GOOD DAY !!!

gaffyh4489d ago (Edited 4489d ago )

That's why I said it would be annoying, cos iPhone needs to always connect to the internet to use Siri, and it would be a ripoff for us if the non-iPhone version worked without needing to be connected

This Is What iOS 7 Looks Like in Motion

Gizmodo: iOS 7 is here. It's beautiful. You can cehck out all the details in the main post here, but here is a video to see how it looks in action. You really want to see this.

In2iti0n3917d ago

Static screenshots don't do this OS justice.

I'm seriously, seriously impressed. Apple exceeded every expectation here.

Nucky3917d ago

Too bad the iOS 7 is just a blatant copy of all other mobile OSes.

In2iti0n3917d ago (Edited 3917d ago )

I agree that there are features in iOS 7 seen in the Android, but the thing is, they took some of them, and made them much better and easier to use.
And definitely more beautiful.

willchao3917d ago

copy from 1? plagiarism

copy from multiple? that's called research, and Apple did their research well enough to impress the users, that's what matters

willchao3917d ago

and if you're gonna be so blunt, might as well bring to the table that android copied everything from iOS, from app tiles to play store to even the slide to unlock

steven83r3917d ago

And if you want to say android copied Apple with all you mentioned you have to acknowledge apple copied all their stuff from other companies.

In2iti0n3916d ago

And so we arrive at the final conclusion:
Nothing under the sun is new.

It's just that Apple takes things from other companies, and makes them cool.

"while Ios7 is completely new"

> loads some minimalist launcher and reskin.

or
> run MIUI on your android

or

> just use stock 4.0

or

> just use windows.

you can experience all of these right now. nothing new. just updating a stale os from 2007 using innovations from everyone else in the industry and the many ROM/modding community just makes you a thief.

mikegeezy693917d ago

Wow!!!!! The new android OS looks amazing! Is this one called like cake batter or something!?
Its so cool how android OS looks even better with a GTA vice city like theme. Wowzers! :D

gdguide3917d ago

I think what is fresh in people's minds are the lawsuiats Apple was throwing at Google and Samsung for copying things as simple as rounded icons and that sort of thing. Now Apple is looking like a total dolt and doing the same thing that they were so butt hurt about. There are SO many things that they even feature in this video that have been around for a while now. Both in function and in the way it is presented. Do they do a good job? Yes. Have they actually created something new? Not even close. Apple is losing their advantage more and more each year as an innovator. My guess is they will lose even more market share after this release.

KingPin3917d ago

the reason android has more and more features/styles/themes is mostly coz of the custom rom community i think. half of those features have been roaming the custom rom scene for ages now. but you know apple, Advertise it like they innovated it into being.

apple are a bunch of whiners. plain and simple.

SirBradders3916d ago

@ gdguide everyone i ask about why they have an iphone comes down to simplicity now they go and add in what the competition got it complicates things that tad bit more so all their left with is a high priced device with aesthetics.

I used to be with apple but being early 20's and good with tech im bored with them and now jumped to samsung but when im bored of these guys and someone others me more ill makw that jump again.

I can also see the industry get together and take apple head on now just for there douchnes.

mcstorm3917d ago

I am no apple fan but I do think the new OS looks nice out side of the home screen. For me it looks more like Windows Phone than Android as everything is flat. This is not enough for me to switch from Windows phone as the OS still offers me more. Even though Apple have taken a lot of things from other OS systems I can see a lot of people getting an Iphone this time round again as they will show it off as if its never been done before and that they thought of the ideas 1st.
