Feed bankruptcy: Being so long away from social media it result in an impossible mission to catch up on all the posts in your feed since you were last logged on.
I have been away for the weekend (declaring feed bankruptcy), none of you did anything interesting, right?

Darth Breather: a person who breathes so loud he sounds exactly like Darth Vader while breathing. Mostly unknowing and especially in quiet places.

*Josua: Why? Was it that hard?

When Apple launched its new iPhone 4S it came with an intelligent personal assistant called Siri. It helps you getting things done just by asking. You can send messages, get directions, ask how many days it’s until Christmas, schedule appointments and much more. Siri really understands your natural speech, it will even ask specific questions if it needs more information to complete a task.
We will give a clear example of how Siri could make your life easier. When you ask Siri “Do I need to wear a raincoat?”, it will tell you if you need to wear one and it will even give you the weather expectations of the next hours and days.
Currently Siri is still in beta, Apple is still making improvements to make it even better. For the moment it only understands and speaks 3 languages (English, French and German), this amount will grow in the next months. Over time you will be able to lock or unlock your car, change the room temperature, ask to print a document and so much more with Siri.
If we haven’t still convinced you it’s one cool gadget, we will now. Siri does not only give you the information when needed, it also makes you smile. Apple has put some nice deadpan humor in it to put a smile on your face now and then.
