    Default Siri Demos and Reviews Show Capabilities, Sense of Humor


    Reviewer: I love you

    Siri: I hope you don't say that to other mobile phones.


    Siri is closer to becoming self-aware than I feared. It is already exhibiting a sense of humor. What's next jealousy? Revenge? Judgement Day?

    Seriously though, the above review and the video at the bottom the page from Stuff.tv show an incredibly capable voice activated assistant. Siri handles multiple accents without a problem, and never misses a step, even in environments with a normal levels of ambient noise.

    Obviously we're very excited to get our own hands on the iPhone 4S and play around with Siri, and even more excited to see what the Jailbreak Community can do with the technology (if it is possible). If Siri is as capable as these videos show, Apple could separate itself from the pack again, and leave other mobile technology companies scrambling to keep up.

    However, Siri's success hinges on how consumers respond to its feature set and functionality. If Siri is a game changing feature people need to actually use it for more than the wow factor. Siri must become part of the iOS experience in the same vein as the touch-based UI. Whether or not users embrace Siri and it becomes more than a fad will be apparent in the coming weeks.

    I wonder if we'll be able to choose the voice for Siri or if it just automatically sets it based on your language and location. I kinda like the British guy one haha

    I agree with frejes32, I want to know if you can change voices, the British one is a bit more fluent and realistic imo.

    I hope there is but if there is no option for that, I bet the jailbreak community will make It possible

    Yes! I also want the calm, soothing voice of Morgan Freeman.

    /me wonders how long until we start seeing "HAL 9000" mods for Siri (where the silver microphone-circle is replaced with the red "eye", and perhaps a voice replacement as well )

    And so it begins. It's only a matter of time before Siri becomes self-aware and then we'll all be fraked.

    I too am not sure if this will catch on or only die once the wow factor is gone. I mean people increasingly sends text messages instead of calling but now are gonna start talking to their phone? I'm not sure I will. I can't wait to try it out nevertheless

    Siri: I hope you don't say that to other mobile phones.
    Does that include the iPhone 4s and the future iPhone 5?
    Siri:Yes
    Wait, when did you get into this conversation?'
    Siri:Ummmmm.........
