    Everyone is talking about all the great things Siri says on the iPhone 4s and nobody seems to realize that it is all the same answers that are given by wolfram alpha. All they did was hook it up to voice commands. It's really nothing special.

    What do you hate about Mac-Heads?

    Just because it does the same thing as a text entry field at a website does not make it redundant. I typed in a question I asked last weekend. "What is the phone number to the cheesecake factory in kenwood?" Came up with nothing but half a phone number. Not even close to the right number.

    Jealousy is tough sometimes I know. Siri has some limitations like any speech recognition still, but it is very advanced as well.

    I use a Mac and PCs, but I don't think Siri is that big of a deal. It's more of something to add to a feature set that's running out of things to ad. People are going to play with it when they first get their phone, but soon it'll die down.

    I've always thought speech recognition was more of a party trick.

    What makes me mad about it is that people say that apple has this great common lenguage speech commands. But when I read the diologe its not anything new its just voice controls for wolfram alpha (Wolfram alpha is really advanced so siri isn't a BAD thing its just not as "NEW" / "Inovative" as people say it is. Its not AI and its not original dialog). I just don't see why people make such a big deal about it.

    Apple can take a rock, polish it, call it an iRock and be successful.

    That's what they do. They take an existing technology, polish it, and market it very well.
