I asked Siri to tell me a story….

I asked Siri, my (and everyone else’s)  iphone 4s personal assistant to tell me a story.

(I’m sorry for the weird quality of the photographs, I saved them via Photo Booth and then reversed the horizontal.  Apparently you can catch a screen shot, but when I tried, my Siri screen went away.)

Here’s the transcript:

 

ME: Tell Me a Story.

SIRI: “Oh, you’ve probably heard it before.”

ME: Tell Me a Story!

SIRI:  OK!
Once upon a time, in a virtual galaxy far far away, there was a young, quite intelligent agent by the name of Siri.

 

 

One beautiful day, when the air was pink and all the trees were red, her friend Eliza said, “Siri, you’re so intelligent, and so helpful- you should go work for Apple as a personal assistant.”

So she did.  And they all lived happily ever after.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ME: Great story!

SIRI: Adam, I don’t understand ‘Great story.’

    That storyteller is going to leave you. And she tells that story to everyone. Your debutante knows what you need, but I know what you want.

    Oh Bill!  You do know what I want!  Which is MORE stories. 

    I tried and tried, but Siri told me the same story again and again.  She’s a 1 trick pony, I’m afraid.

    I think you will kick her ass in a story slam from here to Sunday.

    But how many Thai restaurants are in a 6 mile radius of me right now?  Do you know?  Siri does.
    (I was going to ask about bars, but I was afraid to find out you might actually know how many bars are in a 6 mile radius!  :O)

    I CAN ONLY ANSWER THE QUESTION ABOUT ASIAN RESTAURANTS. THAI RESTAURANTS REQUIRES AN UPGRADE, AVAILABLE TO MY BOX FOR $250.
