    I wouldn't mind them adding search for local business in the UK. Be nice to see Siri get use in other apps too natively...

    Why would anyone possibly oppose Siri getting smarter?

    Right now, all siri can really do is search the web for you and set a reminder/alarm. I'd like her to launch apps, and have the ability to operate the app to some degree (I am speaking more along the lines of picking a Pandora station and not telling her to "launch Angry Birds" and then "win Angry Birds"). I use a lot of speach to text while sending SMS and email currently, so I am happy about that feature. Siri, while cool, I don't find myself using it all that frequently, especially since it is down so often.

    You know Siri is a beta right?? Just be glad Apple released something in a beta or you would be waiting until 2013 for Siri.

    I absolutely love Siri... when it works. The problem I have with Siri is how slow simple tasks are. Holding down the home button requires a delay, dictating anything isnt done locally so you have to wait for it to be sent and processed and the timeout on failure takes a while. I know the standard defense is "OMG, youre complaining about a 2second delay?" but in reality then many times its just faster to simply pick up the phone and read/type than wait for a command to (maybe) complete. And thats not the intended usage patterns for voice-assist.

    To be clear, I was referring to the little mic icon on the keyboard. I have never had a noticable delay on that. I have, however, had a lengthy delay (before failure) on siri plenty of times. :(

    Personally, I don't think Apple should have released siri at this stage, but likely felt thay had to in order to give iPhone 4S a feature that they would leave out on previous models.

    I was born and raised in Chicago and speak perfect, clear English. I just don't like Siri, used it about 4 times on day 1 and that was it.

    How's that? First from memory the "Skynet" from the movie Terminator was a military based program. That aside though, is countless cautionary tales about artificial intelligence.

    If Siri is just a language interpreter and search and iOS data manipulator, how is it going to go bad? Instead of giving me directions to the Dry-cleaning try and get me to drive the wrong way on the motorway?

    Will it develop ethics and inform spouses there husband’s where-abouts if they are having an affair?

    I like Siri, and it has great potential in the future....


    I would like Apple to have Siri include volume control level control that includes a lock of the volume level (So I would not accidentally hit the volume button by accident, which I have done on other smartphones), as well as voice security recognition activation someday if ever possible. Not much to ask :D

    I want Siri to do what it is advertised as being able to do, in my local area.

    "Search for a restaurant nearby". & "Check the weather in your area".


    Siri was one of the only reasons for me wanting to upgrade to the IP4S from the IP4 and the fact that these too features don't work, is disappointing to say the least.

    Why not have a smaller, lighter, iPhone that one carries on their person, has no screen, you simply issue voice commands, and watch as your muscles atrophy.

    Me?

    I love to be active, which includes moving my fingers. Therefore I don't fit the profile for I enjoy doing things for myself including (gasp) thinking.

    Perhaps I'm one of few in the Apple community that is big on fitness & fun in the great outdoors.

    There is a limit to the appropriate use of automation. Yet that said... it _is_ the couch potatoes best friend :)

    Sorry, but texting is going to burn negligible calories when compared to a voice command.
