    If you don’t have an iPhone 4S, but still want to pose spoken questions to your device and let her speak out the answer, give ‘Voice Ask’ a try. The knowledge base behind it is huge (better than Siri) and the voice recognition works better with all accents. Work is going on to add integrated functionality that Siri offers, but for? now, it’s a great app that knows details on the strangest of subjects. Get it at

    I think the way Siri works is it sends your command to? a remote server, interprets it and sends back the command for the iphone to execute. So it isnt using pre-programmed answers, but the artificial intelligence of a “smarter” computer.

    man i dont give a? fuck about news spammer

    I have two things to say:
    1 there IS Siri in Mexico (US english)
    2? Siri responds to a lot of strange and un common questions, like “who’s your daddy?” or “was Steve Jobs gay?” and Siri responded with: “you are” and “I can’t tell you that” respectively, and I don’t think those questions were preprogramed : O

    I just upgraded from a 3gs and the? difference are remarkable. Worth every penny.

    Siri actually works incredibly well at the moment, even though it’s still a beta product. If you consider the data sets Apple is gathering from the 6-7 million 4S users on a daily basis? it’s inevitable that Siri will be able to understand very complex questions very soon. And the fact that all the interpretation and responding happens on Apple’s side allows Siri to get smarter without the need for software updates on the user’s side.

    Siri at the moment is just a kind of novelty thing that u can show off or mess around with.? If ur in public ur not going 2 start talking 2 ur phone as it’d b kinda wierd and every1 would hear what ur doing. If they make 1 that can read ur mind… now that’d get apple back into the markets!!!!!! B)

    Dave, are you having any problems with Lion?


    Tim ??

    I’ve been playing around with Siri on a daily basis and I can assure you that it’s no gimmick. It’s ability to utilise Apple features such as the alarm clock, calculator, reminders, messaging and music player, and most importantly,? safari- is actually astounding. You’ll need to play with it!
