The Starbucks by my house is pretty loud, but I'm usually there at night. It's somewhat close to a high school, and there's nothing like a gaggle of teenaged girls hyped up on caffeine. :) But I've gotten used to it.
You know, it's getting VERY difficult to tell what is /s and what is not /s anymore (not that it was easy before, really). I was going to say that with the purchase of every new iPhone you should get 1TB of storage and a new iMac. Then I was worried that people would think that I was serious. :)
Personally I am convinced that Siri works for most people. But negative opinions are always going to be loudest, since people with no problems rarely have a reason to post in the first place. And just because something is a really good product doesn't mean that a company shouldn't work to improve it. Working to improve products should be an on-going, constant pursuit, no matter how good one believes a particular product to be.
You know, Siri almost always (like well into the high 90% area) understands exactly what I am saying. Maybe you need some diction classes or something. And they said that Siri had been improved. Why not wait and see before you criticize?
