For starters, Siri is your personal mobile assistant, which allows you to do anything from looking up the weather, replying to a text message (after it’s read to you aloud), searching the internet for information, to setting location-based reminders. And it’s only on iPhone 4S.
I don’t have an iPhone (never had, but I had chances to play with them through my friends) but mobile phones are related to my work and it is a requirement for me/us to learn/study about (simple-how-to’s, functions and stuff) the different kinds of phones from different manufacturers, and that includes iPhones.
Weeks before it was released in the market, our Apple-geek trainer told us about the iPhone 4S and then he mentioned about Siri. He said, “So this newest iPhone has this built-in personal assistant blah blah and it has humor.” Being the usual skeptic that I was, syempre hindi ako naniwala kaagad because I felt that it’s too early for this kind of technology. I mean a virtual assistant that is capable of humor. Parang sa mga sci-fi movies ko lang ‘to nakikita.
Siguro mga three days after it’s release, I logged on to Tumblr and typed “Siri” on the search tag. And that was the only time I believed my trainer. Siri is not only capable of humor, Siri can also be sarcastic. Sobrang laughtrip at joketime nitong feature na ‘to. I showed this to my classmates and natawa din sila.
