Chatting to your phone

Can we really put up with chatting to our phones?  Imagine walking along in town or on the beach and there you are talking to your phone, and no you haven’t gone barmy, although others may think so.

But the new iPhone from Apple, the much hyped 4S now has the conversation built in. You can ask it questions on just about everything and in most cases get the right answer. It will also type your messages for you and send them and keep you up to date with much.

You may decide you want one too.
