SIRI for Android? Well, Almost!

 SIRI.. At first i thought it was an alternate to call the Apple-maestro - Steve jobs. But then, I finally got to know, err. it is a voice-assistant for your apple iPhone 4.

And, like before our competitors have been trying to catch up to the apple wave ever since. If you are wondering, when will the competitors catch up to Siri, and lend us an Android version of SIR ( or as i call is ANSIRI), here below is your answer -

SpeakToIt Assistant

It is a fun app to have. If you are the adventurous kind, this one will really impress you. Detects your voice commands nicely, has abundant commands feed'ed for you, and is pretty light weight too, @just above 2MBs.

There are other options as well -
Eva (Bullterproof) , but @ the 500+ bucks VS for Free debate, for me the former won! The free version is just a sham, as always. Plus, there is no sound in Eva.. On the other hand, Speaktoit was able to detect my commands and was working almost flawlessly.

Give it a try. Its fun. :)

Facebook Timeline

So, its finally here - The Bold New Look of facebook. The "TimeLine". With much fuss over it being yet another annoying little tweak on the home page, this comes as quite a fun surprise. Lets go through the gist of it.

Timeline change basically adds two new broader changes to the layout.

1) Look and feel - Amazing new bold and beautiful look. A fun Cover image that you can stick to your profile on top of your thumbnail image. Views lets you see everything at one place. Finally, the Activity log show you what's you been upto, from the day you joined facebook till now. A little changes here and there, but who bothers about them anymore. haa!

2) The entire history of your e-existence on facebook, right at your fngertips. You have the tools to show the public or your individual friends what you want them to see. More privacy, a litle cheating is allowed and lots of fun.

You have the option to choose your timeline over a period of 7 days from the day you activate TIMELINE, In these 7 days, you can choose to change - modify - update your timeline postings. And at the end of it, your timeline goes live for the public to see. Of Course you have the option  to customize what you see and what others can see. I tried it out just a while back, and the features look impressive.

In case you are wondering how to activate it, here's the link -
