I had a client in my office this afternoon yelling into his iphone at Siri, demanding that she find his accountant whose name he had forgotten and to call the accountant's number. He got madder and madder. It was funny. That's why I like Siri.

Someone with Siri (since I just have the 4) answer for me if you can... how detailed can you make its music instructions?

Can you say like, "Siri, shuffle playlist Boy Bands, starting with I Want It That Way by the Backstreet Boys"?

If so, does she make fun of you?

A guy at my office bought himself a 4s when they came out. He didn't realise that you could still access Siri when the phone was locked, so the rest of us would go in and set random reminders to buy odd things or call people he'd never met, or set alarms to go off at random times. Took him a full week to figure out that it was a prank and his iPhone wasn't broken.

Let me see that I have this straight... A feature which is a bog standard function on my Android, is the subject of a massive hype spree by apple and it's followers. And has therefore caused a backlash of the legal variety.

If you have an android phone, siri has been in there all along. Press and hold the search key, and then say " Call XYZ", "Set appointment at 9am on the 5th, note meet george", "what time is it?" "what is a divisor?" "Send text to Mark: hey man, what is going on?" "send email to john, eric, and mike. Subject Friday night. Hey guys, are we still on for the party this friday?" (and it links that word "party" to your calendar and puts a tentative event called party in there on friday.)Etc etc etc.

It works fairly reliably when you have good data service (lots of bars), not so much without data. (it sends the recording to google to process).

So from my place of rest over here... what the fark does siri do that my Android wasn't doing 2 years ago? It talks back. Seriously, that's the big feature here, it sass's you back. Apple is absolutely hilarious.

jaylectricity: "Call me Rock God"

"Sorry, I can't find a contact named 'me rock god'."

I just saw (or at least failed to completely ignore) that commercial a few minutes ago. It made me want to find every 4S I could and tell it "call me wankstain".

JohnBigBootay: If you would like to get a kick out of these replies go back to the first 4s threads and enjoy the comments about star trek and the future being here now and this is why apple kicks ass.

Lol. I was expecting this thread to be like that. Guess they lost steam.

FTFA: "In its Siri ads," Honan concludes, "Apple promises far more than what it actually delivers."

"Well, no shiat..."

C'mon, it's about time people figured out that Apple is repackaging shiat that already exists, but in a cute little package.

Last week my wife - who wants the newest iPhone - was blabbing about Apple's newest toy having a 3D camera.

Me: "HTC's had it on theirs for a long time (tech-wise, it's "forever") already. So what?"

I hope Jobs' underlings weren't as accomplished at smokescreens as he was. Overpricing existing tech requires nothing less than a beatdown.

Apple doesn't need Siri to find a lawyer. Their legal department is so hardcore evil they don't bother using computers, they have brains of interns in jars.

Schrödinger's search engine. You are both using and not using Google at the same time until the waveform collapses.

a survey by Loopt found that a 45 percent majority of those buying an iPhone 4S in the first days after its release were doing so because of Siri.

There's far too much stupid in that once sentence.
