My point is that Siri never has your billing information.

Dont know why are they extending features when Siri is still beta product which needs huge improvements. As well, except few big country her usage is very limited.
Even with these very limited usage, 50% of time when I ask for something I got unclear and false responses. After two weeks of trying I gave up. Not happy with this feature at all.
Offcorse, since her usage is different I suppose there are happy users.

They really ought to sort out the Sports section. To not feature Cricket or Rugby (two of the most popular sports in the world) or F1 is a huge embarrassment. There's so many apps that are better than the Sportacular one.

With all the people pissin and moanin about this and that.
Antenna problems, aluminium that scratches, Siri slow and not understanding
the UI sucks. The awful skeuomorphic designs.
Yellow screens, bending iPhones, cracking screens. It's a wonder Apple has ever made a penny.
And my big question is why all of you complainers continue to but the damn things.

And I know that most people post to complain not to compliment.
But I see a lot of repeat offenders and and forum regulars. Bash bash bash.

You think that's not going to happen to confirming movie tickets?

Golly! I think I will probably never use that magical new feature!

I know! How about add some more POIs to Maps and stop the App Store from crashing every time I use it!

You don't buy the ticket that it suggests, you still have to tap to buy.

I invested money into Apple and am complaining about updates that they are applying to my devices. I have every right to complain about it.


If I came in here not owning any Apple products and ripped into everything then ya I can understand your point.

That's hilarious that they used Argo as an example. I specifically used Siri to get showtimes for this movie a couple weeks ago and Siri could not understand the word "Argo" no matter how many times I tried. You'd think they would add current movies to Siri's dictionary...

You say that why? Because I'm not telling you what you want to hear.
You didnt invest anything. You purchased a product that doesn't seem to live up to your expectations. So move on.

By the way your personal slur has been reported.

Yes reported.
I'm not the one who sounds bitter here. If your location is accurate enough said.
Anyway this is going nowhere fast.
Keep buying Apple and complaining my shares love you.

This. They need to fix Siri's fundamental flaws in speed, voice recognition, and efficiency. More useless U.S.-only gimmick features are just demonstrating that Apple doesn't know how to keep up when it comes to online services. They don't have the attention span to keep improving speed and efficiency of online services the way Google seems to.

To me this is an update they could roll out whenever it is ready. It should not wait for OS 6.1

What? Apple adds this feature without making it a "new feature" for iOS 7? Say it ain't so!
