Comments on: New iPhone? No Siri, Bob! http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/2011/10/17/new-iphone-no-siri-bob/ News, but not the serious kind Fri, 16 Dec 2011 14:56:44 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: AllThatJazz http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/2011/10/17/new-iphone-no-siri-bob/comment-page-1/#comment-416543 Tue, 18 Oct 2011 19:22:13 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/?p=69735#comment-416543 Wait one minute there! I thought that using Vogon poetry was the ONLY way to ask questions like that! After all, if you can read an entire book of verse devoted entirely to lint, the answer becomes a trivial thing!

Also, using Vogon poetry to present the question is never a good idea. As long as you have your towel, everything will be FINE!

GIGO, and all that.

Sounds more like something I’d get on my Stinkberry.

The answer in the first pic should be 42, not all that metaphysical mumbo-jumbo!

On the new iPhone 4S,
Who’s the fairest phone?

And Siri replies:
You’re holding it in your hands!
Why did you ask me?

Then I asked Siri
What is your favourite catch phrase?
“iPhone hence iAm”*

— haiku licence, with apologies to Descartes.

You should see some of the looks I get around here when I take it out :-)

Siri hears voices
Do you think she’s a crackpot
Or valid device?
