iOS 5.0.1 Update released #Apple

Three weeks after iOS 5 and the iPhone 4S debuted, Apple has released a software update intended to rein in oft-reported problems related to battery life. On Thursday Apple started to make iOS 5.0.1 available to users.
The update, which Apple said last week would be coming soon, is supposed to fix “bugs affecting battery life,” but that’s not all. Original iPad owners that download the update will get multitasking gestures, Documents in the Cloud gets some bug fixes, and Australians’ accent should be better understood via an update to the dictation feature in iOS.
The iOS 5 update can be downloaded to the third- and fourth-generation iPod touch, all iPad models, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.

Google Chrome 12 released


The bottom line: Google Chrome 12 comes with a full range of competitive features, and is one of the most standards-compliant and fastest browsers available. It lacks some of the fine-tuning customizations in Firefox, but Chrome’s minimalist interface, fast page-load times, and support for extensions make the browser appealing to the average user as well as to Google fanatics.
Google Chrome continues to mature from a lightweight and fast browsing alternative into an innovative browser on the precipice of a potential browsing revolution with the just-released Chrome OS. The browser that people can use today, Chrome 12, offers highly competitive features, including synchronization, autofill, and standards compliance, and maintains Google’s reputation for building one of the fastest browsers available.
Chrome 12 represents a major milestone for the browser, but those expecting to see dramatic changes in major-point updates will be disappointed. For a while now, Google has been pushing features over what it calls milestone numbers, which means that as soon as new features are usable in the beta version of Chrome, Google will likely push them to all users in the stable edition.
