Current events 5: Apple – giving a “voice” to communication

While the world has been typing instructions into calendars, texting, IM-ing, Tweeting and blogging, Apple is coming up with ways to incorporate voice into some of these things easily.

One such tool is Yiip, which has been compared to “Twitter for voice clips”. Users can “tweet” short voice recordings instead of typing out text messages.

Another recent development is Siri, Apple’s voice assistant on the iPhone 4s. Users can instruct Siri through simple voice commands to wake them up at a specific time, find a coffee shop, and many other useful tasks. Much more convenient and simpler than taking the time to enter text!
