Apple airs Two New iPhone 4S Commercials
Apple recently aired two new television commercials promoting the iPhone 4S, this time starring popular actor John Malkovich, who starred in hit movies such as “Of Mice and Men.”
The two commercials follow the trend of previously aired iPhone 4S commercials, all of which show off the highlight of the device: Siri. The first commercial titled “Joke” highlights Siri finding the weather, getting calendar information, searching restaurants nearby, and last but not least, telling a joke (hence the title). The advertisement can be seen below:
The other advertisement that was aired was titled “Life” and followed the same trend. Here, Malkovich discusses life with Siri. Siri shares tips about life with Malkovich and holds what seems like mini conversation. This advertisement was a bit unique in that it was trying to show consumers how advanced Siri is in a different way than just daily uses seen in many other commercials. This advertisement can be seen below:
Upon the release of the iPhone 4S, Apple's focus on promoting Siri has seen to do the Cupertino California company great success. The sales have reflected the success of the current iPhone and Siri has proven to be a big hit among consumers since its debut. It wouldn't be surprising to see additional commercials highlighting the feature, at least until the announcement of the next-generation iPhone.

Without being jailbroken, Siri is VERY limited. Lets be honest here! I don't even use it really. Its fast to just move my thumb haha! Now when driving, I use voice to text. Turn by turn directions for navigation apps is helpful as well. I think its funny how Apple makes these commercials as if Siri is living and breathing..I looked for a heartbeat and found an A5 chip and lithium battery

Look, here's the deal. To the writers of this board, find someone to make a tweek that allows Siri, to play nicely with Fords "Sync." I would like to be able to use Siri or voice dictation while driving, but the only way to do this is to disconnect the phone from my Ford Sync audio system.
Also, I would like to use the message feature with Ford Sync, but can't because of the Bluetooth protocols used. it would be nice to be able to get in my car, and actually not have to look at my phone. I could do this if I switched to Android because an Android will play nicely with Sync, but I'll pass on that idea.
You find someone to make it work and I'll pay. I'm not talking about a little donation. I will pay. Of coarse there will be a few other stipulations, but again, I will pay!!!!!!!

Didn't someone sue Apple becuase Siri wasnt performing like these commercials. Those one worded responses to Siri will NOT work that way.

I haven't used Siri that much, I mainly use the voice to text like most others, but when I have used her she's been pretty accurate and helpful.

These two adverts show what Siri is all about. Nothing. It's not much more than a hobby. This is a visual for people showing off Siri to their friends, and then not using it for weeks at a time. You are sitting alone with nothing to do, oh, here is Siri to talk to.

I use Siri all the time to send texts, set timers, reminders, and alarms. Now I usually have to edit the text some before I send it but you guys saying Siri isn't useful are ridiculous.

If you talk extremely slow, then yes, going into the Clock app and manually setting a timer is a lot faster than holding one button and saying "Set a timer for 5 minutes."

I use Siri for reminders all the time. I use it when I am driving, and in my Chevy cobalt it synced beautifully with their hands free system. My husband uses the Chevy and I bought a Mustang...no hands free. I need a new head unit too, to make use of my phone in the car. Speaker phone just isn't practical in a sports car, the engine is too loud. However, I hesitate to switch out the Shaker 1000 head unit wondering if sound quality will be effected. At any rate, I love Siri. She's great. Mine has an australian accent.
