Apple has acquired Siri, a startup that makes mobile ‘assistant’ applications. It’s being seen as the latest front in Apple’s battle with Google, and there are music elements, as Siri’s description shows: “You can ask Siri to find a romantic place for dinner, tell you what’s playing at a local jazz club or get tickets to a movie for Saturday night.” In separate news, Apple has confirmed that its WWDC 2010 developer conference will kick off on 7 June, which means the keynote speech that day from CEO Steve Jobs should see the official debut of the next-generation iPhone. Although it may not be as big a reveal as usual, thanks to the recent high-profile leak of a prototype version of the device. Source: Business Insider Source: AppleInsider
