My Siri Cracks Me Up

By
Real Estate Agent with Sims & Company


Siri on Iphone 4

I love my Siri. When I tell my Siri that "I love my Siri", she says. “Good for you”. My Siri cracks me up. It's a cool tool on the IPhone 4S. I can make notes, create reminders, and most of all, give instructions to Siri to help me find something on the web!  She speaks to you, and tells you as-is, when she does not understand what you says. Often times, her findings end up with me laughing out loud, and I have wondered if it were my accent or pronunciation.

Today, a fellow Rotarian and I went around town to drop off bags for collection of canned and dried food for our local food bank.  My fellow Rotarian asked if I brought a pad to take notes.  I told her about my Siri.  We left bags with various merchants in our town.

We took turns telling Siri the names of the merchants.  Some of the recorded notes were so hilarious that we laughed so hard. We had a good time, and here’s a short list - 

 

Actual Merchant Names

What Siri Recorded

 

Cayucos Kelly’s

Jose backs drop off at Kelly’s

Cayucos Barber Shop

Call you cause Bobbinshop

On the Beach

I’m the beach (good thing it didn’t spell the other similar sounding word!)

Duckies

Duppies

Cayucos Gas

Oh I’m sorry I didn’t press it, and how you kiss gas

 

So, in addition to all that Siri does, I call my Siri when I need a good laugh.

The voice recognition can come back with some pretty funny stuff.  Just like some of the spell checkers and grammar corrections software, it can easily misunderstand what you are saying and come back with a completely different meaning.

Great stories about Suri's "hearing" (or lack thereof) -- it cracked me up :-)

great to have a toy with you that helps keep the day a happy one... ask siri "what is the meaning of life"  several cool answers... 42 is my favorite because it is a geek answer..

Hi Doug, Kevin & Mark, thanks for visiting.  The voice recognition could be improved.  I tried it with various persons and it's really funny how Siri picks up our voices.

Hillarious!  My husband has his set up to call him, "Daddy" and you can't imagine how much funnier hearing Siri say Daddy with the other stuff is.  Completely ridiculous!  I hope Siri continues to bring you joy and laughter!

That's funny!  I've seen commercials for that, and even an episode of The Big Bang Theory about it, but I wondered if/how it actually worked.  I have a Droid, so I don't live in the IPhone world :-) Kasey
