You mean like TFD?
 
2014-02-11 11:40:29 AM  
Well, she is a woman.
 
2014-02-11 11:49:27 AM  
That would involve Siri hearing me correctly. I'm not particularly worried.

If you're getting something for free, you're not the consumer. You're the product.
 
2014-02-11 11:54:30 AM  
So does my wife.

What part of buying and using an iPhone do you consider 'free'?

dr_blasto: So does my wife.

Well, you can bet your wife remembers everything I've ever said to her, If you know what I'm saying. *Wink* *Wink* *Nudge* *Nudge*

/Which is nothing because I've never met the lady.
//Never mind.

This. "Free" means something weird to some people...

Yeah, sure, make jokes about how Siri is a lot like a wife.  But a wife doesn't power down and go away when you stop asking her questions.
 
2014-02-11 12:12:01 PM  
I like to ask people's smart phones about hookers and blow.

I guess I should ask about the NSA
 
2014-02-11 12:19:22 PM  
So Apple will know that I've asked "how much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?" about 100 times.

Tomorrow's news item: Looks like turning Siri off doesn't wipe your data from a randomized server 2000 miles away which is somehow not tied to your personal info.

It still remembers everything it mishears, and if it is offended by whatever that is, it will still harbor a grudge against you for it and will bring it up later when you're arguing.

You can look at Siri as a feature you're paying to use on a particular piece of hardware, or you can look at it as a "free service" in addition to the phone hardware, voice, and internet data plan you're paying for. Since most people are in the latter category without Siri, it's easy to see Siri as a "perk" that you get for free on top of what you pay for the service, since you're paying essentially the same and getting something they don't.

Not saying either way of looking at it is right, but when your "paid for" service is collecting data to sell to advertisers and marketers, well, I can see how your perspective might shift.

I swear, when I asked her to find me a prostitute it was just to see if she actually would.

When you answer calls does Siri ask. "WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?"
andyou reply, "What do you mean?"
and she says "WHY DO YOU HAVE AN ATTITUDE?!?"
and you're all, "All I said was Hello!"
 
2014-02-11 01:11:19 PM  
I don't care if she remembers what I said to her. I'm worried she'll remember where I touched her.

/dammit, Suri, *I* didn't design the damn touch screen interface! Besides, you're the one who keeps popping up and offering "assistance" whenever I try taking a perfectly non-sexual artistic selfie for my ChatRoulette profile! It's like I'M the victim here!

One of my friends wound up with weekly reminders that he was a douchebag due to giving another drunk friend his iphone to talk to Siri when it first came out. They would go off at different times and days for six months until he got a new phone.
 
2014-02-11 01:49:48 PM  
Fun things to ask siri :
1)"What is July 27"
2)What is the meaning of life (apparently siri reads nietzsche)
 
2014-02-11 01:59:29 PM  
I asked the best way to dispose of a body. She wouldn't tell me.
Just hope no one I know ever goes missing...

AdamK: well... everything Siri recognized

It is "everything people actually said". They store the audio clips, and it's not exactly breaking news. Wired - April 2013.

So much this. My work iphone's Siri can't understand anything I actually say. The joys of a different accent.
 
2014-02-11 02:36:38 PM  
Last night I used Siri on my wife's phone. This morning, Siri no longer answers me on my phone. How long should I expect this to last?

limeyfellow: My work iphone's Siri can't understand anything I actually say. The joys of a different accent.


It's not so much the accent as asking Siri whether bally Jerry, pranged his kite right in the how's-your-father; hairy blighter, dicky-birded, feathered back on his sammy, took a waspy, flipped over on his Betty Harpers and caught his can in the Bertie.
 
2014-02-11 02:57:10 PM  
So a search engine keeps a history ya say? Fascinating!
 
2014-02-11 03:08:05 PM  
It's better than Facebook knowing everything you typed, even if you didn't hit Submit.
 
2014-02-11 03:16:19 PM  
Well the NSA knows everything you do whether you have siri or not. Big Brother has won.

Hack Patooey: So Apple will know that I've asked "how much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?" about 100 times.


This. It knows my kids ask "what does the fox say?" Over and over.

/when it's not mishearing them as "what the fark say."

I hope you know this will go down on your permanent record.
 
2014-02-11 04:48:57 PM  
So you can ask Siri to find you Siri the porn star and she will hold it against you. Freaking chicks man.
 
2014-02-11 05:01:22 PM  
Siri is great for setting an alarm or reminder.
 
2014-02-11 05:11:03 PM  

nmrsnr: Well, she is a woman.


If Siri was a real woman, she'd remember everything you didn't say, as well.

"I swear, I never said you were fat!  I didn't say anything like that!  I was just saying...nevermind."

That's what Chardonnay is for silly.
 
2014-02-11 05:38:01 PM  
At least Siri won't use it against me like that damn Pepperidge Farms!
 
2014-02-11 06:01:05 PM  
It would be nice if Siri let you see the results of your past searches and questions.

That might also explain all those folks steered into the ocean too. "So you think i'm fat, huh? Recalculating.."

Getting a kick because we can finally do similar on Google.
 
2014-02-11 06:36:18 PM  
What you Siri may be held against you in a court of law.
