Siri, both in its original version and as an iOS feature, adapts to the user's individual language usage and individual searches (preferences) with continuing use, and returns results that are individualized. The name Siri is Scandinavian, a short form of the Norse name Sigrid meaning "beauty" and "victory", and comes from the intended name for the original developer's first child.

DxO Labs has just unveiled DxO ONE, compact 2.65-inch accessory that transforms your iPhone into 20.2-megapixel camera with DSLR-quality images. The company managed to cram a 1-inch CMOS BSI sensor, also used in Nikon 1 mirrorless cameras into the device, and the front sports a 2mm-equivalent f/1.8 lens with a 6-blade iris. There's no display on the device because it's designed to connect to your iPhone or iPad via Lightning connector, enabling you to swivel the camera in each direction 60°.

Let's face it, there are some iOS notifications Apple hasn't included that would actually come in handy, such as one for drunken texting.

That alone is worth more than any gold-plated and / or jewel-encrusted phone case out there, if...you're into that sort of thing. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

The Back to the Future trilogy didn't predict smartphones, but right now, a DeLorean iPhone case is the hottest accessory online, and for the affordable price of $50. As you can see from the images and video, it's an amazingly detailed reproduction of the iconic movie vehicle, with the phone itself housed where the car's chassis would go. There are built-in LED lights and even moveable parts that allow you to fully use your phone when it's in the case. There are a few caveats, or at least for those who prefer function over form: the wheels are locked into hover mode and you need to slide the bonnet across to use the camera, and users also need to flip up one side to reach the volume buttons.

This look like someone (or a store) charging hundreds of phones in preparation to sell, but these are all used by special app store reviewers in China for boosting rankings. Since there are tens of thousands of apps submitted daily, even great apps get lost in the shuffle, these companies sell 5-star reviews - many contain strange stories that you are unrelated to the app - in hopes that your app will hit the top charts.
