The Daily Slash : July 27, 2011

Today's edition of the Daily Slash is strewn with rumors and speculation about none other than the fastest selling Android device of all time, that being the Samsung Galaxy S II. I say speculation and rumors because this device is not yet released in the USA, and once it does get here, it could be in basically any shape or form, so watch out! We've also of course got reviews of the brand new MacBook Air as well as Mac OS X Lion, not to mention the brand new Toshiba Thrive, the Motorola XPRT, and yes, we do have several giveaways going on this week, all of them for tablets.

Apple “Assistant” voice control system tipped for iPhone 5

Apple's long-anticipated voice control system for the iPhone and iPad could make its debut in iOS 5 or as an iPhone 5 exclusive later this year, if a leaked screenshot confirming an "Assistant" feature in the platform's settings is anything to go by. According to that image, passed to 9 to 5 Mac by a trusted source, and the iOS 5 SDK itself, Assistant will use a combination of on-device and cloud processing to recognize natural-speech instructions - such as "Find me more music by U2" - and be able to use various data sources to present the best set of results.

Is this the iPhone 5 3D?

We've just been tipped by a tipster by the name of fishtoon that the next big iPhone iteration will not only be called iPhone 5, but that it'll have two cameras on its back. This certainly isn't the first time we've heard of the 3D functionality coming to Apple, as far back as July of 2010 when we heard that the company had hired Poly9 3D experts, inside December of 2010 when we saw Apple patent 3D glasses-free displays and Apple patenting 3D cameras as recently as March 31st, 2011. The most recent talk of 3D in Apple devices calls for a “paradigm shift from the known software-based approaches.” Is this the iPhone 5's big surprise?

What we're to understand here is that this particular developer of iOS-based software was running an early version of the newest Apple mobile operating system, iOS 5 on his iPhone 4, when a simple charge of the device resulted in some "small flames" which of course his iPhone cord could not hardly withstand for long.

iOS 5 slams door on iPhone firmware downgrades

iOS 5 slams door on iPhone firmware downgrades

Apple is reportedly preparing to ramp up the preventative measures it uses to prevent iOS device owners from restoring older firmware versions, a system often used as part of jailbreak and/or unlocking hacks. As of iOS 5, the iPhone Dev Team reports, Apple will be stepping up the authentication process on the "APTicket" which deems whether a particular firmware version can be installed on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch or not. Even those owners who have "saved their blobs" - aka keeping a record of SHSH details for each firmware version - so that they can backtrack to earlier, more hack-friendly iterations of iOS will be affected.
