The iPhone 4S's Siri is sassy and she's everybody's new favorite toy, but it turns out she's leaving the door open for strangers to access of information on your phone even when it's locked. Siri! How could you?
Siri has the ability to address you any way you wish—Master, Tater Salad, whatever. Siri also has the ability, according to Fury.com, to save that nickname to your personal contact info and distribute it with every vCard you send.
Apple didn't have much difficulty convincing people they needed to upgrade to the iPhone 4S yesterday. But the new phone's biggest selling point, the voice activated Siri assistant, has apparently already succumbed to the pressure of being at everyone's beck and call.
Siri, the personal assistant extraordinaire, is one of the hallmark features of the iPhone 4S. But why oh why can she not be on the iPhone 4? She is, after all, just software. iPhone developer Steven Troughton-Smith thought the same thing and actually ported Siri over to the iPhone 4.
One question UK iPhone 4S buyers may be asking Siri today is: "Hey Siri, why don't you work as well as you did in Apple's trailers?" -- because the magical voice controlled maps and places queries are currently US only.
Yes, it's that day, the day when the iPhone 4S and its personal voice assistant Siri hit the streets of Britain. If you haven't pre-ordered one, but you're still desperate to get one, where's the most likely place?
Awesome filmmaker, iPhone user, and guy with girlfriend problems Casey Neistat wanted to put Siri to the ultimate test: will it salvage his relationship? So he pitted his poor IRL personal assistant against Apple's virtual take. The results? Mixed! Hilarious!
Apple's demos of the new iPhone 4S' Siri smart assistant are very impressive, but they're just controlled demos. Stuff.tv got their hands on an iPhone 4S and played quite a bit with in a public place. It's still very impressive.
Siri will mean a lot of us are talking on our phones, to our phones; a nation of Kirks, barking into communicators. So unless we lay down some ground rules, things are going to get very annoying, very quickly.
Ass was pretty bad, but the global 8th grade iPhone 4S giggle-fest continues. Georgian Gizmodo reader Shota (from the country, no the state, homie) says "siri" is the Georgian word for "cock." Not the bird. This should be good.
