Tech Week: Apple Siri on iPad 2 and more...

This week in the world of tech: Samsung Galaxy Nexus gets official review, the PS Vita will stream PS3 games and the iPhone 4S has an Airplay crisis

It's once again been a hectic week in the world of tech with technological problems being at the forefront of people's minds. First up is the news that the Apple iPhone 4S and Airplay aren't being cosy via iPod docks, with a major manufacturer reporting a some serious connection problems. This was then followed by it's rival the Samsung Galaxy Nexus suffering from volume problems,

Google have however confirmed a fix for this problem but were not been able to defend themselves from a second barrage this time after it was discovered the Samsung Galaxy Nexus would not support USB Mass storage .

This bad news however was short-lived after it was revealed that Apple Siri on iPad 2 could in fact soon be possible after developers found a way to crack Apple's proxy. This has since resulted in some truly original ideas on how Siri can be used to control items in our lives.

In gaming news: Reports have surfaced which suggest the PS Vita will stream PS3 titles over a WiFi connection, the software update could well happen in mid-2012.

It's also a big week for Nintendo as it's the Nintendo Wii's 5th Birthday, the occassion was celebrated with a specially released version of the console in the US.

Xbox Live gamers were placed in the spotlight after it was revealed that some Xbox Live gamers were being conned through a phishing campaign of fake emails which asked gamers to give across their Xbox Live details.
