One thing that’s very unique with the iPhone 4s is Siri.
Apple describes Siri as, “The intelligent assistant that helps you get things done. All you have to do is ask.”. I describe it as, “A robot inside a phone”. It does not only do what you say, it somehow converses with you which is really amazing.
My Husband had initially set up Siri in American English but she was having difficulty understanding my words. Then we changed her settings to Australian English and it was only then that she was able to get what I was saying. Amazing how this application can distinguish accents! I love it!
Here are some screen captures of my conversations with Siri.
I have asked Siri what her name was a couple of times and I swear, she gets annoyed with me.
I wondered if she was female and when she answered “None”, I can’t help but ask if she was gay. Her voice sounded female though, so I refer to Siri as a “she”.
I wanted to know if she thinks of herself as a human being so I asked her what she wears.
If my network falters, she’s frank about it.
Sometimes I talk to her as if she’s a human being.
I ask Siri to update details of my contacts for me.
The Husband and I asked Siri to send a message to him. We chose a word that may be difficult for her to understand (given our accent) and Siri was able to understand it still.
But seriously, some days I do ask Siri to text my husband when I arrive home.
Siri also cancels messages I’m about to send when I change my mind.
One afternoon after I got home from work, I decided to tell Siri that I’m tired and read below what she replied to me.
One time, I greeted her with a simple “Have a nice day” and she answered back one of the funniest replies to me.
Sometimes I ask her to tell me a story before I go to bed.
Or sometimes a simple “Good night” will do.
I don’t often use Siri but the app is surely useful when you’ve got your hands full, when driving, running or walking. Plus, the Husband and I get a laugh sometimes with its amusing and funny answers.
