    it was an app so yes it was alive before the 4S was even spoken of.

    The app has been available in the App Store for several years now, but with the announcement that it has been added to the iPhone 4S, Siri/Apple have turned off server support for that app and have removed it from the App Store.

    The TUAW article states

    "Original Siri service is dead, long live Apple Siri"

    No, don't bother reading the article. I'm sure your flawless intuition understands the issue being discussed.

    If that is true, then apple is turning more into M$... This would basically be a forced "upgrade" to 4s if you want those features. :eek:

    Here's what it looks like:

    But in all honesty, the new DRAGO GO app does everything that the old Siri app did - just not as intuitive. Actually, because Dragon can launch apps like iPod an d Pandora, it does more.

    Unfortunately for Canadians, Siri is dead even on the 4S .. every mentioning of it is absent from the Canadian page and the video has that part snipped out. Pretty pissed.

    When I launch Siri, it tell me:

    "I've been replaced! The new Siri is even smarter and better .. blah blah .. waiting for you on the iPhone 4S. I'll be leaving for home on Oct 15th. Until then, how can I help you"

    That's pretty crappy of that Siri chick. Just like a woman - buy me more stuff our I'm outta here. Bitch.
