TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Unless you live in Canada, where you can give your iPhone 4S
all the additional info in the universe and it still won't
be able to tell you anything about where you are, what businesses
and services are nearby, anything about the store you are
standing in front of (or the museum, or restaurant, or theater,
or national capital and heritage sites, or ... name it). Siri
won't recognize it. Or care.
Fortunately, I don't have "i" anything (a MacBook Pro doesn't
count). So it's not much of an issue.
Though, y'know, I am in the market for a smartphone/superphone,
and was ready to jump on the 4S. Instead, it'll be something
Android-ish. It might be interesting to discover if I even
need/want docs with that, or if it's pretty much self-docmenting...
likely the iPhone woulda been. :-)
