    Just looking at the apple siri page...

    http://www.apple.com/iphone/features/siri.html

    If you look at the last siri demo "ask siri about siri" it shows that maps and directions are "US only". Anyone else a little disappointed? Am sure Apple will add UK and other places later but would have been nice if we had got this function from the start. Will still be getting a iPhone 4s though!

    That's why they call it a beta, so they can just add stuff as they go along I guess. I'm not too bothered, I'm not sure how much I will use it anyway yet.

    Perhaps Siri has problems recognising "how do I get home" with an English accent when your drunk.

    A Brummie trying to get a cup of tea might end up with this...

    ^^ Haha. Yes. I live in Dudley and I fear Siri won't work for 99% of the population here.

    Ordering a tie might get you a toy. I have taken someone shopping and they needed to buy a tie, they were confused when I took them to Toys 'r' Us in Oldbury, they did asks me to take them to a "toy shop".




    Might work with me being a posh git and not from the area.

    You don't often hear posh and Dudley used together. :p

    I'm Black Country born and bred so I'd expect Siri to crash if I asked it a question. :)

    Not at all interested in Siri, another US gimmick along with Facetime ( which i've never used )

    It'll be fun to let my daughter text her mother simply by talking to my iPhone though, that'll be cute.

    :D :D :D :D :D

    There's GOT to be an Enoch and Eli joke about Siri, surely!

    (Originally from Kingswinford, which I guess could count as a posh bit of Dudley?)
