    Has Siri been improved lately? I think she is on medication. Come on, Siri!!!!!

    But can someone tell me why my statement was not understood?

    i agree.
    it seems with each upgrade iteration she gets worse and worse.
    can't even play simple songs anymore when i use her for iTunes match.
    its embarrassing.

    I think Siri has been in beta since October, 2011.

    Remind me about office hours this morning at 8 o'clock.

    Might try saying it without 8'clock and then tell it afterwards when it asks.

    Haha if I was Siri I would say the same thing, the quote really doesnt make sense to me. Maybe its just me.

    I can see how Siri might have gotten a little confused with this one. However, the other day I had a similar issue. I said "Remind me at 10am tomorrow to do laundry." And she responded with "OK, I'll remind you tomorrow at 9am to do laundry at 10am." I have no idea where she got the 9am from. And yes, I do need to remind myself to do laundry.

    "Remind me at 8 o'clock about office hours" does the trick. And "8 o'clock tonight about..." as well.

    Or for some other event: "remind me at 3 o'clock about <action/event>".

    Looks like Siri is getting confused per what Jessica posted: hours with nothing followed by "o'clock".

    That's the default.

    It's pretty simple people....You say "Remind to do (task) at (time)".

    The reason the OP had trouble was the phrase "office hours" isn't really a common task Siri would pick up on without reading the word "hours" and thinking OP was referring to some time frame.

    OP could remedy this easily by simply saying "Remind me to do office hours" and then saying the time of the reminder after she asks - I believe someone has suggested this already.

    Honestly, I've found that Siri has gotten loads better and she rarely misunderstands me anymore. Even in long dictated text messages, she gets it all right. I also love that it types the text out as you dictate.

    Siri has been far better for dictation than on my S4. iMessage Voice to Text has been fairly flawless. I don't speak fast and articulate the words.

    I just asked Siri to "Remind Me To PickUp Pills at 9am Thursday"

    Was added correctly to Reminders App and stated she would remind me.

    I think the word "hours" confuses it.
    It worked fine for me when I say "create a reminder for office hours at 8 o'clock".
    Note it eliminates 'hours' from the reminder title.

    I said "remind me at 8am office hours" seems to work. Adding time at the end always seems to confuse her whether it's part of the sentence or time. The "remind me at 8am" is like an opener for her, then you add your message.
