I tested Windows Phone 8.1 and Cortana and even it beats Siri. The recognition in the Google app is still the king, Cortana is second and Siri is, like, 14th. 
 
Why can't Apple get Siri right? The world-renowned Adventures in Tech explains why the robot butler's job is so hard, and what it could do to improve. Watch the show, then let us know whether you think Siri is useful… or not. http://cnet.co/1iFIxH3

Summary: Using an iOS ad identifier for anything other than its intended purpose, or not respecting a user's Limit Ad Tracking settings can lead to an apps denial or removal from the App Store - and it should.

Summary: Enterprise users looking for ways to connect their iOS devices to Exchange servers have more choices than ever. Apple's Mail, Contacts and Calendar apps aren't the only options any more.

Amazing. But... don't tell that to musicians, many of whom nurse first-gen iPads, etc. I think the usage pattern is different. (also, hi!)

Introduction
Jason D. O’Grady developed an affinity for Apple computers after using the original Lisa, and this affinity turned into a bona-fide obsession when he got the original 128 KB Macintosh in 1984.

He started writing one of the first Web sites about Apple (O’Grady’s PowerPage; www.powerpage.org) in 1995 and is considered to be one of the fathers of blogging. He has been a frequent speaker at the Macworld Expo conference and a member of the conference faculty.

After winning a major legal battle with Apple in 2006, he set the precedent that independent journalists are entitled to the same protections under the First Amendment as members of the mainstream media.

O’Grady is the author of The Nexus One Pocket Guide, The Droid Pocket Guide, The Google Phone Pocket Guide, and The Garmin nüvi Pocket Guide (Peachpit Press), the author of Corporations That Changed the World: Apple Inc. (Greenwood Press), and a contributor to The Mac Bible (Peachpit Press). In addition, he has contributed to numerous Mac publications over the years.

When he’s not writing about Apple for ZDNet at The Apple Core (http:// blogs.zdnet.com/Apple), he enjoys spending time with his family in New Jersey.

This is my favorite car wash in the area (and I've tried 'em all). It's relatively new (opened in the summer of '12) and if you get the Silver wash ($11) they take out the floor mats and clean them for you. The waiting area is comfortable too. Get a book of washes for a discount or a free wash with an oil change.
