Heck, Siri doesn't understand ME much of the time. But then neither do my children, and I KNOW they have better speech processing capability.

While I don't condone suing, SIRI's useability seems to be getting worse. Most of the time it just offers a web search whereas before it would use Wolfram alpha.

If that doesn't get tossed out of court then our legal system is in much worse shape than I thought.

I don't know if this is true or not, but I think I read somewhere that the huge demand for Siri's services somehow degrades it's (her?) effectiveness. If so, perhaps this is a temporary effect.

I'm thinking of suing because my phone doesn't have siri... Apple should give it to everyone.... Free... and pay us to use it...



And buy us MacDonald's Sweet Iced Tea (so we can spill it on our laps and sue both company's for distress caused by shrinkage)

AMERICA - What a Country!



You can tell a lot about a woman by her hands...
- For example, if they are wrapped around your throat she's probably slightly upset.

Oh yes - the entitlement effect. It's only a matter of time before someone sues the weatherman because he failed to forecast rain on a day they didn't bring their umbrella to work.

What the article didn't tell you is that the lawsuit was brought by Mushmouth from The Cosby Kids.

Like the folks in Italy who are being tried in a criminal case (manslaughter) because they failed to predict an earthquake ?

Legal systems as applied to scientific and engineering reality are the 21st century equivalent of putting a witch on a scale to see if she weighs the same as a duck.

Isn't it a well know fact that females (Siri) cannot and never will be able to understand males? I think the reverse is also true.

Been done for failing to notify for wind probability and subsequent drowning resulting.

Methinks your confidence may be misplaced.



It is what it is.
