I really enjoy being the last person on Earth with a Droid. And one of the old ones, too!

If only Apple had included a "Personalize Siri's Name" function.

I guess they called it "Siri" because "Parisian Hooker" wouldn't fit on the screen?

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

Siri is an auto-task-bot that you order about using oral commands.

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.

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

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

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.

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