A lot of people were initially disappointed when Apple unveiled the iPhone 4S instead of the iPhone 5 last October 4. Personally, I think all that disappointment could have been avoided if people reigned in the rumor talks prior to the launch. There were literally dozens of new rumors being spread all over the web each day as October 4 drew closer–and while Apple could’ve issued a little press release to cut down the chatter just a little bit, they didn’t, in true Apple fashion. (But if you think about it, more rumors probably would’ve surfaced had they said something, so maybe it was a no-win situation then.)
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Iris is an anagram for Siri, the much talked about personal assistant that comes with the iPhone 4S. We’ve all heard and read about the things that Siri says, and everyone seems to be jumping into the bandwagon. Even those who are not really iPhone fans. Or maybe especially those who are not – except they jump into the anti-Siri bandwagon.
