Questions that Siri should be able to answer, but can't

Computational

Memory

Do you remember what happened yesterday?

Research Ability

What's trending on Twitter?

What's the top headline on Yahoo?

Whats the news today?

What happened today?

Consiousness

Are you self-aware?

Are you recording everything I say?

What is the worst country to live in?

Introspective

Do your creators like you?

Are you ugly?

Are you non-human?

Are you smaller than a... are you bigger than a...

What kinds of questions can you not answer?

If you were a person, would you enjoy life?

How do you answer my questions?

What are you thinking about?

Commands

Abort.

Take notes on this.

Repeat after me.

Say that again?

Repeat that?

Say it slower.

*Confirmed : Can be answered

Some of those questions are subjective and/or rediculous.

I was talking to both Siri and Evi and some of the responses were interesting. I felt like I was really talking to something.

Some responses that are written up are meant to make you believe that the AI is not evil.

Like: Are you a liar, are you a prophet, are you a saint, are you evil, do you want to take over the world?

Siri neatly and accurately answered all of those computational questions for me.

No, I'm just curious about what has been asked. Lots of people around the world have different beliefs and believe it or not, some people would believe that she has "ulterior motives" or that she is a spy. Not me though, .

I wanted to find out what they know about themselves. Are you red, are you purple, are you white? She answers practical questions really well. Can you drive?

They usually stick to the basics of about 13 intransitive actions.

Also, I find it odd that they can answer what's the best country to live in, but they can't answer what's the worst country to live in.

I have a question, what is something you could say to cancel the question you are about to ask Siri when you are in the middle of speaking but you mess up or stutter... ?

You obviously meant 'die' instead of 'day,' but that's a bit much to ask of Siri... it's also where I stopped reading. Judging from the other comments, I don't think I missed anything.

Guys, these are just questions to test its intelligence. To see how real it is.

"Take notes on this."

Can she answer "How much will $70 a month be in two years?"

It's not long before you realize that most of the answers to your questions come from a directory service or are scripted responses from male programmers.

I thought Siri was alive..

It pulls information from the web but doesn't really understand what you're talking about.

I thought she was supposed to be, you know, self aware or something.

But it's dull and lifeless. I thought it was supposed to be like in the movies.

The people in the commercials were talking to it like it could actually understand what they were saying.

If it can't understand you, why would you be talking to it?

The guy says, "How do I tie a tie again?" The woman say, "I'm locked out", and the soccer mom says "We have a flat tire." but they all say it with a smile on their faces like they're actually talking to somebody..

Especially the girl who says, "what does a beaver look like" or something. Now we all know that Siri does not understand what a beaver looks like. She probably doesn't even know what a beaver is.

You really want your phone to be self-aware? Get a cat, that way you can name it, it will love you, and ignore you most likely. But at least it will be self-aware.

For the phone to to be self aware would be rather disturbing.

But Siri is not the phone. She's just on the phone.

That would be acceptable..

I had no expectation for a more sophisticated form of ai then Siri already is. So I was not disappointed.

Luckily this is my first iPhone so I didn't upgrade.
