    I thought Siri was supposed to get smarter with time...

    Seriously, more people care about cricket than bodybuilding (I can believe that) and boxing?

    Let's see how it does with music. Siri, when does Asgeir perform in Amsterdam?

    Me: "This is not how you pronounce Asgeir"
    Siri:

    "Is there anything you actually CAN do?" (repeated three times, I don't have a heavy accent of any sort and Siri tends to understand me except for Icelandic names I guess, fair enough)

    ...not that it matters whether it understands me or not. In second case words display as "can do", then self-replace with "Kendal".

    I guess the fact you can automatically Bing search the web is very useful for people with disabilities, which is a great thing. Hey, let's give her one more chance. I am sure I'm just holding it wrong.

    Seriously? What do people here actually use Siri for on a Mac?

    Google Now gives these results…

    Voice search is good, but I think you're expecting too much from it.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    It's more understandable that Google don't know who Eddy Cue is ;) but it pretty much wins in everything else!

    I had no chance to check but is it true Siri is "smarter" on iOS devices?
