Free Siri app offers natural language understanding, Other apps offer voice recognition

The recent success of Project Watson, an IBM computer, in demolishing the two all-time most successful champions on the Jeopardy quiz show has focused attention on the coming of natural language understanding to computers — and to our iPhones. The trick has been to teach a computer not just to search databases of information but to understand natural human language. Imagine how convenient that would be: you'd never have to type a query or tap your phone's screen again.



Get Microsoft OneNote still for free

We reported previously on the OneNote app, which I briefly reviewed (the WP7 version) in my HD7 review. My impression is it's a sort of dumbed down Evernote (without the fancy website scraping). You can now sync and track your bullet lists, to-dos and even embed pix in notes on iPhone (requires a Live ID--app will help you create one). This is a reminder that you can still get the mobile iOS app for free in the App store (limited time).

iDos Emulator gets pulled a second time from the Appstore

I’ve had wonderful memories when as a kid, I spent several blissful years with my IBM PC XT clone experimenting with Dos programming and played cutting edge games like Ultima IV , Wizardry, Autoduel and Star Control. The iDOS emulator ported by Fast Intelligence was able to deliver an unmatched wave of nostalgia and within a day of installing iDOS on my Ipad, I was trying out some of these classics again – mostly just to see them again in all their glory - 256 VGA colour and adlib sound.



Microsoft OneNote for iOS

I spotted this over at Macrumors today. Microsoft released a version of OneNote for iOS today. It’s apparently only available through the US iTunes store and it’s free for a limited time. I just downloaded it while it’s free so I could have it for future use.
