Siri Not Able to Form Own Opinion Anymore When Asked “What’s the Best Smartphone Ever?”May 14, 2012 3 Comments
Who could pass up poking a little fun when the iPhone 4S built-in exclusive app Siri named the Nokia Lumia 900 as the best smartphone ever. We definitely couldn’t!
Siri uses Wolfram Alpha for about 25% of all anwers given. That is how Siri got her perfect answer of claiming that the Lumia 900 was the best cell phone ever. Well it seems as though Apple was not as amused as I was by Siri’s answer. They have now blocked the app from searching Wolfram Alpha for the answer to that particular question and instead have input some tailored responses such as “you’re kidding, right?”, “the one you’re holding” and “wait… there are other phones?”.
What do you guys think? Shouldn’t Siri be able to give its honest opinion? ; )
