Steve Jobs stepped down as Apple's CEO today, and "strongly recommended" to the Apple Board of Directors that Tim become the new CEO.
"“I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know,” starts his letter. "Unfortunately, that day has come.”

One of the big changes with the arrival of iOS 7 is the way Siri works. In the past, you'd hold the Home button, wait until Siri responded with "What can I help you with?", release the button, and then speak. Siri would automatically detect when you stopped speaking, and respond. The problem was that sometimes Siri would respond because you'd made a slight inadvertent pause in your speech, even though you weren't done talking. Now with iOS 7, you hold have the option of manually letting Siri know when you're done talking by holding down the Home button while you talk. Siri keeps listening until you release the button. In addition, Siri also has new, more natural-sounding male and female voices for Mandarin Chinese, UK English, Australian English, and Japanese.
One of my favorite things about reading ebooks (besides the fact that I no longer have to figure out how to fit 10 books in my carry on) is how easy it is to look up the definition of a word and then get right back to reading. No more encountering a word whose meaning I'm not sure of, realizing my dictionary is on the shelf all the way downstairs, and deciding I don't really need to know what that word means after all. (I stopped pretending to myself that I would look the word up later years ago.)
But did you know you can also look up words in Mail and Safari?

The Calendar app on your iDevice can help keep your life organized. It can even be synced among all your devices using iCloud. You also have a choice to use separate calendars, such as one for work and one for home. When you add an event to your calendar it is automatically placed in the default calendar set up on your iDevice.
Here I'll show you how to create events, add details, and, if you choose, place them in separate calendars.
With the launch of Apple's new CarPlay last week at the automobile trade show in Geneva, many were left wondering if you had to buy a new Ferrari or Mercedes or Volvo in order to get it. Apparently, the answer is no. 9To5Mac has reported that at least some automakers will be offering aftermarket CarPlay installation for older models. They've confirmed that Mercedes will be doing this, and expect others to do so as well. This is good news, and it will be really interesting to see how it develops. Apple has made a fortune giving us better interfaces for our technology: first personal computers, then MP3 players, then smartphones, then tablets—and now the automobile.
Hello friends and fellow iphoneographers. In this post I will be teaching you tips and tricks for capturing fantastic silhouette shots. For starters, you can use many different subjects for your silhouette shots. This includes people, birds, trees, or any object that would form a great silhouette. You always want to make sure your subject is in front of the lighting you choose to use. I find the best silhouettes are captured using natural light in the background. Sunrises and sunsets are my personal favorite backgrounds for capturing fantastic silhouette shots. I believe you can never go wrong using one of these as your backdrop.
