    Just read an interesting article about a guy in America starting a lawsuit against Apple concerning it's Siri adverts depicting flawless use of Siri.

    I wonder if apple will use the 'beta' card here.

    The article is on mygreatiphone site.

    A man, from New York, is trying to sue Apple over is Siri software after he apparently heard an advert conveying a “misleading and deceptive” message about the iPhone 4S only service.

    Mr Frank M. Fazio filed a law suit on Monday, on behalf of himself and other iPhone 4S users, claiming that Siri is far less responsive and accurate than Apple’s commercials describe.

    The lawsuit, raised in California, stated:

    n many of Apple’s television advertisements, individuals are shown using Siri to make appointments, find restaurants, and even learn the guitar chords to classic rock songs or how to tie a tie. In the commercials, all of these tasks are done with ease with the assistance of the iPhone 4S’s Siri feature, a represented functionality contrary to the actual operating results and performance of Siri.”

    Mr Fazio has claimed that Apple’s Siri service is ‘spotty’ at best and ‘unusable’ at worst. He gave an example of using the personal assistant as a navigational tool and “Siri either did not understand what Plaintiff was asking, or, after a very long wait time, responded with the wrong answer.”

    The law firm who is representing Mr Fazio has described Siri as*“at best, a work-in-progress.”

    As usual we will keep you update with more about this story as it unfolds.

    Dude i missed the thread already on this, but hey thanks for your input.

    I've seen the ad's here in the uk and it does show it working without hiccup.

    In most of apples ads they put at the bottom 'sequences shortened ' etc but I don't think they'd put ' works 70%' lol

    Lol, I don't know the guy, but looking at his name he prolly has one of the hardcore accents and to my knowledge Siri does not understand douchebag to well (I think that is in the next update). This is just some @$$wipe trying to make a quick buck, trying to disguise himself as a good Samaritan. Since he is doing this on behalf of all iPhone 4s users I will be expecting my cut if the outcome is in OUR (iPhone 4s users) favor.

    IMHO, Siri is a joke
    Usually it responds "Would you like me to search for that ?"
    I can do that myself and my Google searches are far more precise than those using Siri
