I see your point indeed! Thanks for the clear explanation ^^
Adobe's Flash player also has a "stats for nerds" menu item. Humor's not incompatible with software. What's annoying is humor replacing features, but in Adobe's case... well whatever.
I find Apple's solution actually better on that. In many languages, the end of the sentence can massively modify the meaning. "What ruler was exiled in Saint-helena and died there?" is Napoleon. "What ruler was exiled in Saint-Helena and returned after seven years?" is the king of Zulu...
French accent in that video, for sure ^^'
Seems an interesting experiment. I am wondering if it could be a UX issue (like, no integration with Pandora since Pandora is US-only, it would be very bad UX to fire up a tool that refuses to launch, obviously). Maybe Wolfram integration from French/whatever is too hard for Siri's server for now, since it means correctly getting the phonems, which Siri does fine, then getting the meaning, which Siri mostly does fine, then switching it to US english to query Wolfram, then...
Yes, both on iPad and iPhone (but iPhone is 4, which means no Siri). I'm going to test switching Siri to "American English" and see if it changes anything...   Well,the test is pretty conclusive. Siri's abilities depend on the language you're using. US English gives me Wolfram Alpha answers, French gives me Wikipedia instead. Frustrating...
Well... shame on you girl. Probably Google Now doesn't want to embarrass you on TV?
Hey, looks like you have stuff my Siri doesn't have... Could it be that Siri in the US has more features than in the rest of the world? Would strengthen my former point about Apple Maps/Siri, I guess...
Well, I haven't actually ran Windows 8 myself, I was "kind of" happy with Windows 7 on my mac though (hey, you gotta play those Windows games on a Windows).
The question stands: was it planned, or not.  I wouldn't put it past Steve to actually wave the fact iPad shunned Flash in the face of Adobe...
