The Photos app’s Faces feature is fantastic. It does a pretty good job of gathering all the pictures of a person together, for both browsing and search. And it’s really easy to add new faces to the list. But what about managing those faces? What if the Photos app’s AI added some photos of a stranger into the photos of your husband?

Did you ever wonder what Siri would look like, if she weren’t just a bunch of 1s and 0s bouncing around inside an Apple data mega-center? The Big Bang Theory’s Raj thinks she’d be a sultry, promiscuous sex line operator, but that’s not the only possibility, which is why the makers of the popular Nomad Brush Stylus have thrown a contest called the Compose Portrait Siri-Ies Challenge, in which they’re giving away a custom engraved Nomad Compose to the person who comes up with the best depiction of what Siri really looks like.

We’re totally digging the entries they’ve gotten so far, which range from beautiful to monstrous, from realistic to abstract. Check out the best faces of Siri below, then go over to Nomad to vote for your favorite.

Specify Which Albums Are Displayed In Photo Frame On iPad, Or Disable The Feature Completely [iOS Tip]



Photo Frame is a nifty feature on the iPad that allows you to show off your photo collection by turning your device into a digital photo frame when it’s not in use. By default, the feature cycles through all of the photos stored on your device, which could mean that an embarrassing image can pop up at any time and spoil the afternoon tea you were enjoying with friends.
