It works too on all Android devices, and not just the Samsung flagship smartphone.

I love android. It's just so darn versatile, and Samsung's continuing support of the modding community (mainly unlocked boot loaders on non-carrier devices) is just making me smile. The consumer has the power to overcome limitations imposed by greedy carrier, most of the time.

Apple has always been the one to throw the first (or 100th) stone when it comes to the mobile space. They need to innovate, and innovate hard, instead of worrying about what they're competition is doing. The two companies have the same exposure in the public eye, and it would be so much better for everyone if they competed in the showroom, not the courtroom.

It's because whomever wrote this dumb article on Eng. is a troll. I really hate how Eng. writes summaries of other articles. It was Eng. wording that implied that the voice-recognition is an issue that they want to sue over, but it is not. It has nothing to do with the proposed ban.
Apple is contending that the Galaxy S3 is close enough in design to the Nexus that it should be grouped into the previous ongoing litigation against the Nexus. Among that is the "universal search" function that Apple has patented (means you enter something in one location to search, and then the function searches multiple locations--like your device and the web, etc.). That's all. Nothing at all to do with voice recognition.
This is a much better synopsis of the situation--much better than what's written on Encrapet: http://www.theverge.com/2012/6/6/3068790/apple-requests-block-samsung-galaxy-s-iii-sales-us

Quote:
Specifically, Apple claims that in its brief analysis of a UK-sourced version of the phone, the Galaxy S III infringes two of the four patents that its going after the Galaxy Nexus for: universal search and smart links (like those on phone numbers that push users out to the dialer). Apple hasn't yet concluded whether or not the other two patents (slide to unlock and keyboard suggestions) are also infringing, but due to the similarities it says that both smartphones can be judged together. Samsung, in its opposition to the motion, says that "This should not be done on two days' notice, without due process, and with no factual record whatsoever" and that "Adding a new product to this motion would significantly change the analysis of all four preliminary injunction factors."

Much, much better synopsis of the issue(s) at hand, thanks guyladouche smile.gif.

It changes the conversation significantly, now it seem to me that this is exactly the type of corruption in our justice system that we need to correct. First we have MU taken down, destroying their business, while avoiding due process, next we have one of our largest American corporations attempting to do the same.

At times, I feel we live in one of the best countries of the world, but with recent events, I don't know how much longer I will be able to sustain the hope for this country.

I have S Voice installed on my galaxy nexus...Its really not that special, the voice is highly annoying, its slow to respond and it cant do half the junk that siri supposedly can do like jokes etc. I am surprised that apple is that bothered in all honesty.



actually what am I saying, Its apple! Those people would sue their own children just because they looked similar to them. rolleyes.gif

Apple patented searching multiple different sources at once?!

Academic databases have been doing this for YEARS before Google started doing it before the iPhone even came out.

Wow this is truly getting very old.

Short of texting while driving, well, dictating while driving to Siri, it's the most useless "feature" Apple put on the 4S. It's a gimmick beyond belief and it's sad that someone at Samsung even thought that they should disgrace the Galaxy S3 with something like it.

And yes, I own and adore by 4S, but Siri is just a useless joke incapable of telling decent jokes. :|

I would say that because of Siri, I use reminders and calendars far more often because of the ease of entry. Punching in the info was always a hassle that kept me personally from using those apps. Dictation is also a major plus. These alone make Siri extremely useful imo.

yeah but only around 1/3 of the English speaking population can use it successfully due to differences in accents, dialects etc so you are one of the lucky ones that do see some benefit from it.

Ever witnessed a Scottish/Irish/Scouse person try to use any type of voice recognition? Its the most hilarious thing to witness but the most frustrating thing for the user...Makes me glad I am originally from Cambridge and I don't really have much of an accent. tongue.gif

1/3 of the english speaking population on earth isn't a bad start, but I hear ya. It's not a problem I'm faced with, therefore not one I'm concerned with.
