Apple’s newest smartphone, the iPhone 4, is way more than just a phone. It has intelligence in a computer voice named Siri that answers users’ questions.
Just hold down a button, speak into the phone, and Siri will answer you.
When one user asked about life’s meaning, he was informed: “All evidence to date suggests it’s chocolate.”
Another user asked: “Why am I here?” The system replied: “I don’t know. Frankly, I’ve wondered that myself.”
And when a smitten buyer asked “Will you marry me?”, the software responded: “My End User Licensing Agreement does not cover marriage. My apologies.”
One buyer told his 4S: “I need to hide a body.” Siri suggested reservoirs, metal foundries, mines, dumps or swamps.
One person asked Siri what its favorite color was and Siri replied: “Well, I don’t know how to say it in your language. It’s sort of greenish, but with more dimensions.”
Another person told Siri: “You’re sexy.” Siri responded: “I thought so.”
It even knows the phone owners name. One woman told her phone “I love you,” and got the response: “You hardly know me, Margaret.”
Another asked “Why are you so awesome?”, the iPhone answered: “I just am.”
Many users are having trouble using Siri. They report when asking Siri a question, the computer voice replies it is having trouble connecting to the network.
Many say a simple reboot while disabling and re-enabling Siri in the settings fixes the problem.
