Just to be clear, I have NOTHING against the other phones. I am not a hater of your Droids, Evos, Galaxys or any other phone. SOOO for you that last time referred to me as a I-hole. Save your breath. (I am still preferring to think that you meant that in the nicest possible way). I will have my phone and you can have yours.
The real genius of Apples marketing plan is they released a lot of new features on the new model and made the older 3G phones incapable of downloading future updates. So if we wanted the 200+ new features, a much faster running phone and a personal virtual assistant I was inspired to run out and get the new phone. Of course, I also realize that in about a minute from now they will release the IPhone 5 and all of the 4S buyers are going to be kicking themselves.
The new IPhone has a feature that includes a voice activated virtual "assistant" called Siri. Siri lets you talk to her and she will schedule appointments, make calls, tell you where your are and how to get to where you want to be, and any number of "must know now" inquiries. Well that is what she is supposed to do. This of course leads to everyone asking all manner of questions to see what she might say. Leave it to the masses to find another way to fritter away time. Here is an example of some question asking. Keep in mind that the girl asking the questions has such an annoying giggle, you will want to punch her but the video shows some of the questions being asked of Siri. I am sure you will all be in favor of Siri telling this chick to shut up. Siri must have a certain amount of self restraint. (yes, I understand that at least on some level these answers are "Easter eggs in the software...so don't email me) Still some of these are pretty funny.
Never let anything go without some controversy. (I mean other than the usual...my phone is better than your phone type of stuff.)
Charlie Le Quesne, a 12 year old boy that was looking at phones on display at a store, asked an Iphone 4S "How many people are there in the world was shocked to hear the reply "Shut the F*** Up You Ugly T***. The boys mother was quoted as saying perhaps Siri was tired of stupid questions. The store manager, however surmised that someone tricked the phone into thinking that the owners name was "Shut the F*** Up... and Siri often answers questions incorporating the owners name.( You can read more about that story in a Huffington Post Tech article.)
