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.
You'd think the smart people at Apple might check for this kind of thing in advance, but alas. Japan's giggling in the wake of iPhone 4S' birth, as voice control wizard Siri sounds a lot like shiri—ass. Oops!
Straight up: I'm a little disappointed with the new iPhone 4S. I was hoping for more. My expectations were higher. I wanted something extra special, largely because I've been waiting for it for So. Very. Long.
We were pretty sure the next iPhone was going to pack some awesome new voice command tech, but it's being demoed live, and living up to expectations: talk to it like a human, get results from a smart person.
Apples new Siri personal assistant is crazy crazy stuff. Being able to talk to your phone like a real person is the stuff of Sci-Fi. Here's the catch: It's limited to the province of the new iPhone 4S.
