    If only Fazio had RTFM (p.43):



    "Siri may sometimes have trouble understanding you...If Siri doesn’t hear you exactly right, you can make corrections."

    Although Apple advertised SIRI as a selling point, Apple did not emphasize in the add that SIRI is Beta. So really people are gonna complain. Especially those looking for ways to discredit Apple, say a samsung official who wants to try and make Apple look bad in some way so that Samsung sales will increase. Maybe we might see more adds from android promoting their voice activation. LOL.

    I got so pissed at Siri the other day because she said it couldn't find a contact with the last name (she pronounced it) and proceeded to suggest a contact and pronounced it the same damned way. Five times she did this... It got to the point where I thought she was F'n with me so I asked...



    Siri - "I'm sorry [ChristophB]. I can't answer that."



    But, it's beta and is dead on much more than not.



    Edit: perhaps he should do a compare and contrast with Wife 1.0b.

    If you speak like you write, it's obvious Siri - or anything else - has no clue what you're talking about.

Go make an appointment with a speech therapist or something.



    I'll be testing out the dictation feature on the iPAD this friday, and I expect it to work pretty good, since I don't speak like a retard.



    So your idea is: who is not "born&raised in USA" is a crappy laughable retard?



    There you go ... Straight into ignore list....



    You remind me of my "born & raised in US" neighbour who was a bit slow mentally, but what God took from his brain, compensated 10x in patriotism. He used to say: "You may think I am a moron, but I am not just an ordinary moron, I am American moron."

    Is he the guy who sued because he bought some aftershave that showed sexy women falling all over the actor - and when he tried it, it didn't work?

    Kind of reminds me about a story I heard back in the early 80's, a guy bought a PC took it home and prompty typed into a DOS prompt "Where is my wife?" thinking that the PC would be able to answer the question. He took the PC back to the store and complained that the only answer the PC ever gave was "Unknown Command".

    Two things-



    1- if the lawsuit is found to be frivolous by the judge- it will be tossed out and the attorney fined heavily.



    2- wait until the ruling by the jury (that's us and your other Americans)- as a right given to us by the 7th ammendment before making/passing judgement.



    Bad lawsuits either get fined or are only attorneys who are representing themselves that do it for notoriety. This is neither. And he's right- it doesn't work nearly as advertised. Let's not pretend it does. Beta or not, it doesn't work as advertised.



    I'll sit and watch this from the sidelines before I judge (particularly when there hasnt been a day in court). Armchair quarterbacks- calm down.

    Whenever I watch an US tv show like Boston Legal and think "these stories are sooo made up" an US citizen shows me: no, reality beats the tv shows hands down.

    Really? Care to point to a similar case where the attorneys have been fined heavily by the court for filing a frivolous suit?



    And on what basis do you claim that it's frivolous? Especially since you claim that it doesn't work as advertised.



    I think you're imagining things.

    The 12th amendment concerns the electoral college procedure for electing presidents and vice presidents. I think it is the 7th amendment that guarantees a trial by jury in civil cases.

    Maybe the attorney wanted Siri to call him a "Rock God" and Siri responded by telling him he is just land fill.

    It is obvious to everybody that this guy is on the make. If he was truly dissatisfied with his 4S he could just take it back and get a refund - what 'damages' is he claiming over and above the cost of the phone? Damages for his hurt feelings, his loss of business, his ruined road trip? Also

    I keep thinking of the Hugh Grant 'Mickey Blue Eyes' character trying to mimic the 'Noo Yoyk' accent and just wonder if the guy has some impenetrable dialect. That would be hilarious if it ever came to court!

    Real New Yorkers from "The City" pronounce the two words as a single syllable: as" Narak."



    "Where are you from?"



    "Narak Narak."

    I think that the Terms and Conditions covered the merchantability issue by stating that it doesn't exist.

    Wrong. Wives understand their husbands just fine. They just refuse to accept that husbands have any rights to an opinion in any matter that concerns them.



    The fine print in the marriage license states that the woman always gets the last word. Anything the man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

    Jury? If it even gets that far. Apple made more than an effort to let everyone know that Siri was beta. Secondly, he can just return the fuckin phone within the return period like most unsatisfied customers do.
