After hours and hours of deliberation and still not coming up with a suitable topic for a post, I had finally resigned posting today and settled down to watch Re-runs of “SUPERNATURAL” … Dean and Sam are my favorite Ghost hunters.
That’s when I heard a faint ‘DING” from my laptop and knowing its an email, lazily went to check it.
For those of you not in the loop: SIRI is Apple’s latest software innovation. The application uses a natural language user interface to answer questions, make recommendations, and perform actions. Well you will need a data connection for SIRI to work, you didn’t think that SIRI was self sustained now did you? that’s preposterous.
SIRI is now an integral part of iOS 5, and available only on the iPhone 4S, launched on October 4, 2011. Currently, Siri only supports English (US, UK, Australian), German, French, and Japanese
Apple has said SIRI will not be supported on older devices. Why you ask ? Simple … old apple devices do not have special External noise cancellation hardware/software which is integral to SIRI functionality.
Here is a good video of SIRI in action … well the guy is Scottish and I don’t blame SIRI .. hell even I can’t understand what he is saying.
HEHE !! Apple should ship iPhone 4s with a SIRI warning.
But SIRI has also prompted a new kind of Science Fiction (sci-fi)
check the following movie out: Reminds me of SKYNET
Well that’s SIRI for you, capturing the imaginations of young and old alike. Do I have SIRI ? no sir. I do not. But I have SARA.
What is SARA ? Thats for my next post …
