Just like thousands of Apple fans across the globe, we were in line first thing this AM to get our hands on the new iPhone 4s. We couldn’t wait to have our first meeting with Siri, the personal assistant that, according to Apple’s Website “lets you use your voice to send messages, schedule meetings, place phone calls, and more. Ask Siri to do things just by talking the way you talk. Siri understands what you say, knows what you mean, and even talks back. Siri is so easy to use and does so much, you’ll keep finding more and more ways to use it.”
Understands what you say, knows what you mean! OK, we felt confident she could help us find good Thai food or know to retrieve text messages, but would she grasp some of the most important questions in all of pop culture? We put her to the test, asking her the following:
What’s My Age Again?
What Is Love?
Where Is My Mind?
Who Are You?
Why So Serious?
Why Don’t We Do It In The Road?
How’s It Gonna Be?
Should I Stay Or Should I Go?
How Can We Be Lovers If We Can’t Be Friends?
Whose Line Is It Anyway?
What About Bob?
Who Can It Be Now?
Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?
The answers to most questions? “I do not understand.” Apple has said that Siri will improve over time, because she can adapt to you and Apple will also upgrade her brain. We plan on putting her to the test again soon here in our Newsroom. Please leave suggestions for other pop culture mysteries we can pose to her below or on our Facebook page.
