    Has anyone noticed that SIRI is getting the word "NO" incorrect as of today? It had not been doing it previously but as of today it keeps thinking I'm saying "NOW" no matter how clearly I try and say NO. Give it a try, tell it to send a message, then when it asks if it should send, say NO, and it will tell you "Sorry, I don't understand NOW"

    Then say cancel
    But the device should adapt to you, not the other way around!

    Why there is no function to 'train' a word boggles my mind. I hate having to mispronounce my contacts names and certain words to get the right word to show up.

    for contacts there is a phonetic feature. As for learning, it is supposed to learn as you use it.

    As least she doesn't misunderstand "no" as "yes" like every other woman.

    Yesterday, I found it impossible to get Siri to recognize "yay." She had various incorrect interpretations such as "yeah a." I think it's a word Apple simply hasn't programmed her with. I too wish there was a training/introduce-new-words function, at least with dictation.

    Ok all, remember

    Siri is a BETA.... meaning non 100% finished product. Apple i'm sure is constantly working around the clock to get awesome features added to siri and taking in everyones input about things they'd like siri to do like opening apps, being able to teach her how we say certian words and other awesome things.

    just my $0.02
