    Despite pre-ordering the iPhone 4s it wasn't because of Siri, after I'm already paranoid about looking stupid, I don't need to be seen talking into an inanimate object to add to that, but after reading this article I'm becoming more convinced.

    I didn't know Siri was AI, I thought it was simply voice recognition software...amazing tech.

    I'm not sure if I will use it that often other than to show up but I will enjoy it....

    Nobody will suspect you are talking to Siri. It will seem like you are actually talking to someone on the phone. I'm gonna be important now that Siri will be my own administrative assistant. :) lol

    I'm just hoping Siri doesn't become self aware.

    Siri sounds amazing, too bad I won't be getting the 4S.

    I'll put Siri to its paces this Friday. I think it'll be amazing.

    nope!
    looks like a lot more than that...I heard it even knows when your girlfriend is ovulating so you don't have to worry about impregnating her!

    Siri is yet another on the list of many examples of what Apple does for technology. They aren't the first, but they are the finest. I love living in the future [​IMG]

    Guess what? A hacker successfuly ported Siri to the iPhone 4 but it's still in its testing stage.

    I'm not sure, but isn't Siri hardware-wise? Like it needs a better microphone than the one the 4 has or something?
