    Asked 'what's the best phone you can buy?' and got 'Wait... there are other phones?'

    This is a sidebar article? Really?

    Who's going to do the daily piece on what Tim Cook eats for lunch?
    Can I expect articles on how iPhone users have lower chiropractic costs because the weight of their phones creates less imbalance in their left/right weight distribution?

    Have to agree. Who gives a rats 'a' about posts showing Siri responses? Seems pointless.

    Are we going to get a new post every time a MR staff member gets a funny response? :rolleyes:

    Consumers do. It could very well be a factor in their purchasing decisions. The more creative and intelligent Siri is demonstrated to be, the more attractive the 4S becomes.

    It's the little touches like these responses that really round out the User Experience.

    Details, details.

    That's why it's on the sidebar, not the main page (or whatever you call it).

    Seriously, months after Macrumors has debuted this new format, I'm still amazed at the people who piss and moan about articles in the sidebar. Do you have nothing better to do? It's the sidebar for a reason!

    Personally, it gave me a good chuckle on a Friday morning and for that reason alone I find it had value. Also, I agree with LTD, I don't have an iPhone 4S so it was also further insight into the 'intelligence' of Siri. It is about the details, and it's pretty clever that Apple built in one of their most well known slogans 'Think Different' into its brain...

    So... If you hold an android phone in your hand, plug the headset into the iPhone and ask Siri, "What's the best cell phone?" She'll say, "The one you're holding." Which means that she thinks your android phone is the best???

    I wonder if Apple thought of that and program Siri to respond differently when the headset is plugged in....

    Yeah! How dare MacRumors place an interesting article outside of the main page! I was so mad by the idea that I logged in and posted about it.

    Seems a bit silly doesn't it? After all, these cute responses by Siri contribute to making it all seem more polished. I like these articles.

    How do you get Siri to respond with your name?

    But when pressed for which is the best phone, she's not modest:...

    I'd say at the current time she is very honest.;)

    Wow that's clever. I wonder if someone actually thought of all these questions and prorammed the responses.

    (I'm quoting this way because I'm not sure if quoting someone in the mobile page works.)

    Intelligent? This isn't artificial intelligence, these are pre-determined answers programed in for predicable questions. cute yes, magical, no.

    I'm keeping an eye on these sort of sites, they are bound to get at least a little popular. http://hisiri.tumblr.com:)

    It's the first day of a new phone, people are interested.

    On christmas, did you open up your gifts and run around the house excited, only to be told to shut up by your dad?

    "That's enough about look what it can do son! I'm trying to watch the damn game!"

    You guys realize that it's some geeky guy programmer who anticipated your stupid questions and picked out key words and formulated a nerdy response to satisfy you, right? It's not really a sexy woman computer answering. :rolleyes:

    In a week everyone will totally be bored with Siri and it will go the way of facetime as something you never use.
