Apple might soon allow you to delete Siri history

Apple rolls out new Siri audio clip grading opt-in and request history deletion feature in beta

Apple is rolling out a new opt-in notice for Siri audio sample review with the beta of iOS 13.2. This new opt-in feature was promised back in August after reports that audio from Siri requests were being reviewed by contractors and that the audio could contain sensitive or personal information. Apple had previously halted the grading process entirely while it updated the process by which it used the audio clips to “improve Siri.” The new process will include an explicit opt-in for those us...

Amazon reportedly has dozens of workers watching footage recorded by its Cloud Cam home security camera (AMZN)

Amazon has dozens of workers reviewing clips recorded by its Cloud Cam security camera, according to a new report from Bloomberg. Amazon only reviews clips that Cloud Cam owners submit for troubleshooting, or footage that comes from employee testers, the report says. But two of Bloomberg's sources said that the clips reviewed sometimes include private interactions, such as recordings of sexual activity. The discovery comes after Amazon had come under scrutiny following a separate Bloomberg rep...

Those video snippets are then used to train th...

Spotify Updates Video Targeting Apple On Same Day As Siri Integration: 'It's time to play fair'

How to change the language on an Apple Watch, and make it differ from the language on your paired iPhone

You can change the language on your Apple Watch using the Language & Region settings of the Watch app to make it display a different language than your paired iPhone. Your Apple Watch is designed to "mirror" the language used on your iPhone, so by default it'll use whichever language is set on that device, but you can make the two devices differ. Once you add languages to the watch, you can switch among them by changing the Preferred Language Order.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more...

4 Ways Voice Interaction Makes Us Better Marketers

Fresh from designing and deploying a new Alexa Skill, I am struck by three things: Designing for voice interaction requires a new set of skills and tools. It’s not as simple as “audio content.” Voice interaction is a relatively new behavior for which there are few real experts or templates to follow. The pressure to develop skills that people will actually use will make us better marketers.  To say that voice interaction will become big may be like saying the computer mouse would be big back ...

How to See Battery Percentage on iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max

iPhone 11 Pro Max Battery On iPhone 8 and earlier, you can choose to show the battery percentage in the status bar of your iPhone. To see the remaining battery, you need to go to Settings > Battery and turn on “Battery Percentage” toggle. However, the same isn’t possible on newer iPhones including iPhone X, XR, XS, XS Max, and iPhone 11 series. That’s because the new iPhones feature a wide notch or cutout at the top and hence there isn’t enough space to display the battery percentage icon. Che...

Amazon’s World Domination Moves a Step Forward : The New Alexa Echo Auto

The new Amazon Alexa Auto Show is being slowly trickled into the market.

What to expect from Apple’s WWDC 2019

Last year’s WWDC was a rare step away from hardware for the company, without a single device announcement. In fact, Apple’s gadget lines have largely been the subject of quiet releases over the past year. Ahead of the big Apple TV unveil, the company issued several press releases highlighting minor updates to flagship lines. Just last week, it did the same for the MacBook, with a quiet announcement around the latest attempt to resolve longstanding issues with the malfunctioning keyboards. Nex...

Bose previews voice controlled on-ear headphones and a pair of wireless earbuds

Bose just announced a trio of new headphones today. The company used the opportunity to primarily focus on the dryly named Noise Cancelling Headphones 700, which purport to sport “the biggest leap forward in headphones since the iconic QuietComfort.” A big claim, to be sure, especially given how much that line has come to define the category. The new headphones apparently use the QuietComfort line as a sort of stepping stone, adding in voice control through Google Assistant and Alexa (plus Siri ...

Don’t ask how AirPods 2 are still discounted on Amazon, just get a pair

When Amazon first slashed the price of the Second-Generation Apple AirPods with Charging Case, we called it a "rare" deal. And of course it was, since brand new Apple products almost never get a discount, let alone the 12% discount Amazon offered on the AirPods 2. It has now been a few weeks though, and the price is still down to an all-time low of $139.99. So at this point, we can't really call the deal "rare" anymore. We can tell you that you should hurry up and order a pair though, becaus...
