    I know, I know, another Siri thread.

    An interesting side note is, not only does this Siri sound different (refer to other threads about how this LQ Siri is not iOS 6 exclusive, it's been a known "bug" for some people in iOS 5, a simple network reset sometimes fixes it) but she's like an entirely different version. She pronounces and dictates differently as well. Excuse the "immaturity" as some of you will call it, but here's an example: so she repeats it without telling you to not use profanity say "play motherf***er"... LQ Siri says "muTHURvacur". HQ Siri pronounces it completely differently, correctly. There are other words as well. And FWIW, I was not the one who discovered that she pronounces that word differently, but I have heard her dictate other words different including peoples names. And this is not iOS 6 beta specific, the pronunciations vary in the LQ Siri on iOS 5 as well.

    Edit: I'll be adding words as I encounter them.
    -"suhSHE" vs sushi.

    Is it possible there are two versions of Siri? This is all so confusing.

    Siri on my ios6 iPad gives me different responses than my iOS 5 iPhone 4s. Tells a different joke and when I ask her the time on my iPad late at night she says for example, it's 10:30- time to put on the party clothes. Haha it's weird

    I say "life"
    She responds "all evidence to date suggests it's chocolate."
    Or "I Kant answer that. Ha! Ha!" Written just like that, it's odd 0.o

    Maybe you should read up on your philosophy.

    It's interesting (to me) that it's almost as if there are two versions of Siri with different pronunciations and different responses. You didn't have to leave a response.

    Kant was a philosopher.

    To the poster who asked "Where's the interesting part?" Hint: it's not in your post...

    So your interesting information is simply that the lower quality version of Siri is lower quality than normal Siri. :eek:
