Reverse engineering

October 19, 2011

I’m not going to talk about Siri, I don’t have an iPhone 4S yet, there are 73 million search results from “Siri review”.

Android users are laughing as Apple is a year late at least. Never mind being late as he said Apple won’t ship junk. I would have thought if these people can code something (I very much like the name Iris) up in 8 hours with Apple’s talent muscle they could have done it in 8 minutes if being copycat is in their DNA.

Read the full post from here:

When we started seeing results, everyone got excited and started a high speed coding race. In no time, we added Voice input, Text-to-speech, also a lot of heuristic humor into Iris. Not until late evening we decided on the name “iris.”, which would be Siri in reverse. And we also reverse engineered a crazy expansion – Intelligent Rival Imitator of Siri. We were still in the fun mode, but when we started using it the results were actually good, really good.

“Me too” isn’t disrupting. Apple just disrupted its own market again, there was touch smartphone in 2007 very soon you don’t have to touch your iPhone again.

Still remember what they said back in 2007?

The whole idea of a touchscreen is a pretty counterintuitive design philosophy, if you ask us. Nothing will ever rid humans of the need to feel physical sensations when interacting with objects (and user interfaces). Having “trust” in the keyboard is a fine concept, and we believe it when people say they’re up to speed and reaching the same input rates as on physical keyboards.
