News, but not the serious kind
Taking Siri out for a spin?
Blog Guy, I gather from your recent posts that you’re a big fan of Siri, the personal assistant on the new iPhone 4S who carries on conversations with users?
So, have you gotten to know her personally?
Well, I don’t like to boast, but as you can see from this screen grab, yes. Siri sent me her personal, private phone number.
Blog Guy, you’re just pathetic. That’s one of those fictitious 555 numbers that they use in movies, which don’t really exist. Siri is just having fun with you. So, I heard a weird rumor about the timing of the release of the iPhone featuring Siri.
Yeah, it’s true. Apple released the phone a couple of weeks before Halloween so they can cash in selling Siri costumes for trick-or-treating. All the kids will be trying to look and sound like Siri next Monday night.
But does anybody know what she looks like?
Yes. She sent me this photo of herself. She’s sassy, perky, coy and confident.
So this woman who wouldn’t even give you her real phone number claims she looks like a fashion model in Russia? I give up, Blog Guy.
It’s only going to get better. On the next iPhone release, you won’t even have to punch that button to get Siri’s attention. She’ll answer if you just give the phone a whirl, spinning it around quickly.
That’s amazing! I hadn’t even heard that yet!
Really? You don’t know about the Whirled Siris?
