LOL I used to, lived in the South End from 98-01, then back to NYC, then was just back last Fall to March. I'm an American raised in London from NYC and upstate NY. It makes for interesting dialects .

PS Matt Damon is shorter than I thought, but a great guy! A friend on SWAT for BPD looked EXACTLY like him when he was ~19 (now 43). He had to shave his head cause he got so much crap for it, then Damon shaved his head, and he couldn't win.

My friends and I got a kick out of this a few years ago:

Please, Boston Team, teach Siri to speak REAL english (not that dialect U.S. americans call english).

BTW, rephrase that slogan: Designed by Apple in California and Massachusetts

There's a reason people just Google and not Bing.

Do people even know what Bing is?

As someone who has an N7, HTC One X, iPhone 5, iPad 3 and MacBook Pro, I wholeheartedly disagree. I find Siri to be more useful whereas Google Now is generally faster and more reliable. In terms of usage, I use Siri all the time, but rarely use Google Now.

I find I use Siri and Google Now for different purposes. Siri for native app stuff...alarms, timers, texts, emails and the like. For "information" questions, right now I find Google Now is faster and more accurate than Siri.

Whether it's Apple, Google, or whoever else. Doesn't mean it's not nice to have but to think there's actual, widespread usage of it is just being naive.
Wat?

Apple should invest more energy in other features. Connectivity in form of adaptors for USB flash drives and Superdrive, for example.
Yes they also should run the marathon backwards.

I want Siri to have a sexy voice and talk dirty to me for 5 minutes.
Maybe the next version can slap me around a little.
How about a hands free fleshlight attachment by 2014!

Phawkin A! That's wicked cool!... and yes, I do hope there is an accent. Teach her how to swear so I can blare her voice on my stereo in a loud manner while I drive around Boston in heavy traffic!
