[access-uk] Re: IOS5 gains and losses?

Hi Andy,

First, you have to download the IOS5 in the normal way for an upgrade, via 
ITunes, and only after that, with the additional functionality, will you be 
able to download IOS updates via the Cloud, if you wish.

Siri is an electronic personal assistant, again operating from the Cloud 
somewhere (in other words a server off someone's computer, somewhere) and he 
can accomplish certain tasks.

You may wish to join the ViPhone list which is a real good source for 
information, if rather a busy list.  I am not sure that this will work, but you 
could try to send an email to

viphone+subscribe@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
and see what happens.

There are lots of discourses with Siri on YouTube.

  Carol - Siri? What is that, and is it available on the Touch or just the 
phone? Also wanted to try to upgrade the IOS via the cloud, but not sure where 
I'll find the means on the device for doing that?

  Thanks -

  Andy

    You'll be able to upgrade IOS via "The Cloud" so won't need your computer 
for that task.  You also can backup that way, though not music as yet, which is 
really annoying.

    You don't absolutely have to use the male voice (though I like him 
personally) but could opt for the lesser quality American or Australian voices 
if you wished, and of course can alter these on the fly if you choose.

    I must admit, whilst I struggle with Siri in accuracy when dictating, I do 
like to be able to choose a song.

    I also like my incoming male and messages read out as in the Notification 
Centre.

    To be honest, I think it's worth upgrading, or you could find some apps 
don't work any more.
