Ellen: Apple iPhone Siri Review
Ellen DeGeneres, like many Americans, is a convert to Apple’s iPhone. The latest generation of the iPhone includes Siri, a voice-activated search tool that can actually converse with you to help you find the information you seek.
Today, Ellen decided to learn more about Siri (or, as Ellen called it, “the woman who lives in here”) and she brought it out onstage to give the voice activated technology a whirl. She reported that things can get complicated when Siri doesn’t understand what you’re trying to ask her.
Ellen Talks To Apple iPhone’s Siri
“You ask a question and it answers,” Ellen explained before demonstrating the technology for the audience. Here are their exchanges from the show.
- Say hello, Siri.
- Hello, Siri.
- Will you tell me a joke?
- Two iPhones walk into a bar…I forget the rest.
- What do you look like?
- Does my appearance matter to you, Ellen?
- No, you’re very pretty.
- No, perhaps not.
- What’s your favorite color?
- My favorite color is…well, I don’t know how to say it in your language. It’s sort of greenish, but with more dimensions.
- What’s the meaning of life?
- I Kant answer that. Ha ha!
- Siri, I love you.
- You can’t.
- Do you love me?
- I’m not capable of love.
- I’ve met people like you before.
- Sorry, I don’t understand ‘I’ve met people like you before.’ Search the web.
- Do you think I should dance right now?
- It’s nice of you to ask, Ellen, but it doesn’t really matter what I think.
- I think I’ll dance right now.
- Searching the web. I found 11 dance clubs…8 of them are fairly close to you.
