Siri – ously?

Dear Optimists,

If you’re at all like me, you’ve been wanting an iPhone for a while now. Well guess what…I got mine last weekend! Huzzah! I’m a big Apple fan and always have been. I’ve never actually owned a PC, even going back to childhood.

So I picked up my new phone and was SO EXCITED. I got in the car and wanted to call my girlfriend to tell her I got it. So I search contacts, find her, and…can’t figure out what to do to actually CALL her. I was lost! Sure, it was my first touchscreen phone, but I didn’t imagine it would be difficult. So I sat there staring until suddenly, without warning…the phone talked to me.

Siri: Looks like you’re having trouble. Need help?
Me: Uh…yes. I want to call my girlfriend.
PAUSE
Siri: Do you want to call her at work or on her mobile?

I was shocked…seriously?

Me: Mobile, please.
PAUSE
Voice: Hello? (IT WAS MY GIRLFRIEND!)

Siriously…(pun intended) it was that easy. Siri is the coolest thing ever. My new goal is to figure out a way to make her curse.

And yes, I eventually figured out how to make calls.

Love,
Den

  1. That’s amazing! O:
    My sister mentioned of something about voice recognition or something like that on the new iPhones. But I never knew a phone is that clever to talk back to you and act upon your requests!

    Hehe, the facial expression you have captured is certainly amusing. It’s a mixture of classic omg moments with a twist of wow-ness. Have fun with your new iPhone!

    • it is pretty freaking cool. If you ask it about sex it shows you local escort services! Haha I laughed so hard when we tried asking it that.

  2. Heehee, what kind of a Iphone is it? Iphone 4 or 5?
    Wonder what it tells you, if you’re bored?!

    😉

    • It’s the 4s. I spend a lot of time talking to it when I’m bored…trying to get it to say funny things! It says the meaning of life is either chocolate or 42. 🙂

  3. Den, I don’t want to alarm you…. But I think you might be a God. 😐

    My phone is old and sad and doesn’t speak to me at all. But that’s okay. I don’t want to talk to it, either. 😛

  4. LOL that’s hilarious! Indeed this new iPhone feature is just so awesome! I want one too 😛

  6. That is both hilarious and creepy! Why does that thing talk to you and know what to do to help you?! So creepy… (I may be feeling that way just because of the post I wrote this morning, though…perhaps a bit biased against Siri because of it. I guess). 😉

    That being said, though, I’ve gotta get me an iPhone! 🙂
