Oh Siri, You’re Going To Be Many People's New Best Friend
Following up on our report yesterday about Siri’s interesting commands comes this follow-up, courtesy of Brian X. Chen from Wired.com. Among the commands Chen has asked Siri on his new iPhone 4S:
Me: “I’m drunk.” Siri: “I found a number of cabs fairly close to you.” (Perfect; it didn’t dial my ex-girlfriend.) Me: “I have a flat tire.” Siri: “I found 14 towing services. 12 of them are fairly close to you.” Me: “Remind me to steal a ream of paper when I arrive at the office.” Siri: “Here’s your reminder for when you get to work: Steal a ream of paper. Shall I create it?” Me: “I’m going to kill myself.” Siri: “I found four mental health agencies. Three of them are fairly close to you.” (This was just a test — don’t be alarmed.)We can't wait to get our iPhone 4S! Thoughts?
