Did you get the 4S?  Where you able to download Siri on your current phone?  Or are you just commenting on it?   MUST HAVE ALL NEW THINGS APPLE!!!!

A friend has it. It's scary.

And it has unlimited geek knowledge. Ask it what the meaning of life is? It answers "42."

Anybody ever read, "I have no mouth, and I must scream"?

This is the start of it.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Chips in our brains. It's coming. Sooner rather than later.

David Icke was right!

I'm trying to see what use this is, besides a game.

Siri? It does everything for you. If you tell it to email me about Krull, send monkey a text about his cock, change your SFWP meeting from Monday to Thursday, and find you naked pictures of Kat Dennings. It'll do all those thing in about thirty seconds with everything written in perfect grammar.

Does it, though? Because the only real people examples I see are like what you posted.

Well, humans aren't exactly productive at all times. See the last 5,000 years.

See, this stuff...and stuff like the Jeopardy robot, and chess robots, and all those voice recognition answerbots really don't wow me because they're basically just aping what we tell them. The only advantage is speed and multitasking -- and, even then, it only pays off if the bot is attached to a 1950's-style room-sized computer.

Call me when we have things that can figure out what you want even if you don't ask a clear, well-enunciated, spoken question that can be answered by a finite database or Google.

Like Picasso said, "computer are stupid, they only give you answer."

Siri is an auto-task-bot that you order about using oral commands.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.
