[Toms] Apple's Siri - Page 13

post #121 of 165
I have pretty good results using voice commands in my car with the Droid X for nav and call functions, although it did seem to have to learn my Texas drawl a bit. If Siri is even better, I will probably make my next phone an iphone.

Am I the only one that finds it extremely funny that people are talking into a device so that it will translate it into text to send to someone, when the device is specifically made for voice calls to begin with. They could have just called them instead ya know

I know they are made to do many things, but it's prime function is voice calls. Just thought it was ironic and somewhat comical. Don't read too much into it, it is just an observation. More on topic: I am highly skeptical that it will function that smoothly and be so intuitive. Especially the weather part where they ask about a city and then say "what about such and such place?" without having to query it again with the specific command of "weather for such and such". This kind of software has come a long way, but I can almost guarantee it will not work that fast and smooth.

Agreed i tried to fudge over dragon dictate and its pretty darn good, very good for a quick text or an email!

I even tried in as may accents as i could, still worked...

Well, I just asked it what the weather was like in Paris and it said "This is the weather in Paris through to Wednesday", and then I said "What about Italy?" and it said here's the weather for Rome, Italy, through to Wednesday.

It took about half a second to one second per request.

paris & rome are easy to pick up have you tried asking about random places, and do you have an accent?

People text more than they call.. txts are asynchronous and more convenient.

Its cool, but it will only have a few voice activated actions anyway, so most of the time it wont actually recognized what you say.

I may just pick up a 4s instead of waiting for the nexus prime. At least I know want I'm getting with this (+siri sounds sick).

post #130 of 165
consider this....

the person is driving a car along with his parents..the phone has to be placed in a mobile holder...what if siri starts to speak the messages sent by girl friend or vice versa....or any adult jokes....

especially in India...these kind of things could become a disaster....
