Funny and all but I don’t find anything “old tech” about the new iphone. Its not based on old tech. The only “old” part about it is the physical casing. It’s a whole new animal inside where it counts. And siri is nothing novel it’s damn freakin amazing technology.


The “old tech” comment was aimed at Siri. Voice recognition software isn’t exactly new. That said, the official demo was pretty impressive.
