Weeks before Apple unveiled the iPhone 4S, Samsung said it would sue the living daylights out of the Cupertino company over "wireless technology related patents" in South Korea. Turns out Samsung was just puffing its chest up. It now says it's not suing Apple.
Apple released iOS 5.0.1 yesterday for all iPhone users. The firmware update was supposed to fix the battery drain problems that iPhone owners have experienced since updating to iOS 5 or buying an iPhone 4S. Post-update release and people are reporting worse battery life than before.
Siri is one of the major selling points of the iPhone 4S. The voice-activated personal assistant isn't available on the iPhone 4, iPad 2, or any other Apple device, despite people hacking older devices to run it just fine. And that won't be changing anytime soon.

Ever since the iPhone 4S and iOS 5 have been released, there have been widespread complaints about the iPhone's dismal battery life, especially on the latest model. Apple appears to have finally figured out the issue, as a new software update is coming soon to fix the power-hungry problem.
A couple of weeks ago we saw how hacker Steven Troughton-Smith had successfully ported the iPhone 4S' Siri personal assistant over to the older iPhone 4. Problem was, it couldn't fool Apple's servers into coughing up any of their informational goodies. Now Troughton-Smith has completed the job, making Siri fully functional on the older device.
Many owners of the iPhone 4S are complaining about very short battery life, with their fancy new smartphones sucking down the juice like it's going out of style. The good news is that Apple is aware of the problem. The bad news is that they have no idea what's causing it.
The iPhone 4S's voice-activated assistant, Siri, works great from up close, but what about from across the room? That's where IRIS 9000 comes in, HAL's primitive cousin.
Pretty much every device you can buy with a satellite navigation function, relies on the U.S. built GPS network for coverage. But now this monopoly is being challenged by similar systems created by other countries. The latest iPhone 4S works on the GPS system just like other smartphones, but it also supports the Russian GLONASS network as a secondary system.
It was big news that Sprint got the iPhone 4S when it launched, leaving only T-Mobile as a major carrier without Apple's phone. Now comes word that another U.S. carrier is getting the 4S. And that carrier is C-Spire?
