Siri strikes back

Siri strikes back

Summary: Siri is the flagship feature of the new iPhone 4S, but what happens when it comes out of beta and starts getting smarter?


It's that time of year again! When a brand new iPhone flies off store shelves and into the expectant hands of fanboys and fangirls around Australia.

Users have reported mixed success with the flagship voice-recognition feature, Siri, which can recognise natural speech commands and translate them into phone operations.

Siri is in beta right now, but what happens when she comes out of beta and starts learning? Worse still, what if she turns evil?

What if Siri stops telling us what we want to know, and replacing it with what she wants to tell us?!

Watch the video to see Siri strike back.

    • Don't think Apple would be too worried.
  • You will know you are stuffed when Siri says in a male voice:

    "Is that you Dave?"
