Scalado’s Remove Lets You Eliminate The People Who Ruined Your Photo

With Remove, imaging technology company Scaladobrings us one step closer to a world in which our photographs aren’t so much record of where we were as they are a representation of what we would have liked that place to be.

Remove is a photographic tool for smartphones thatallows for the ex post facto removal of errant moving objects — cars, people, tumbleweeds from smartphone photographs. Given the ease with which ex lovers can now be removed from your snapshots (or, more optimistically, the ease with which you can perfect that photo of your special someone),HuffPostTech’s Captain Gadget notes that having the technology debut on Valentine’s Day, of all days, is “pretty perfect.”

Hell is other people, in your pictures. Meandering strangers have been the bane of photography since people stopped painting their vacations and started photographing them.

With Remove, imaging technology company Scaladobrings us one step closer to a world in which our photographs aren’t so much record of where we were as they are a representation of what we would have liked that place to be.

According to DroidMatters, Remove works by taking multiple shots during each shutter click and using those frames to create a composite image in which only the stationary items are left, i.e. you still have your girlfriend smiling in front of the Taj Mahal, but you don’t have all of those tourists who were milling around her.

Apple’s Siri May Soon Speak Japanese, Work On iPad 3 (RUMOR)

Apple says Siri will add Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, Korean and Italian this year, but this “outing” is leading many to speculate that the Japanese capability will come very soon.

And that’s not all. On Tuesday, SlashGear reported that Siri may be available on the iPad 3, which is expected to be released on March 7.

The speculation comes from a new token that Apple has added to Siri rendering the application inoperable on devices other than the iPhone 4S. According to Apple, the app “works exclusively on iPhone 4S,” but many have jailbroken their iPhone and iPad devices to allow Siri to work.

Siri Update

Siri’s got a big mouth.

The Apple news blog 9to5mac reportsthat Apple’s virtual assistant, which currently supports German, French and English, may inadvertently be outing herself as a Japanese speaker.

Indeed, when we asked Siri what languages she spoke, she told us she speaks “English, French, German and Japanese … so far,” and reminded us that we can change the language in the app’s settings. But there is no option there to switch it to Japanese.
