Siri (software)

Siri (Speech Interpretation and Recognition Interface) (pronounced /ˈsɪri/) is an intelligent personal assistant and knowledge navigator which works as an application for Apple’s iOS. The application uses a natural language user interface to answer questions, make recommendations, and perform actions by delegating requests to a set of Web services. Apple claims that the software adapts to the user’s individual preferences over time and personalizes results, and performing tasks such as finding recommendations for nearby restaurants, or getting directions.

Siri was originally introduced as an iOS application available in the App Store by Siri, Inc. Siri, Inc. was acquired by Apple on April 28, 2010. Siri, Inc. had announced that their software would be available for BlackBerry and for Android-powered phones, but all development efforts for non-Apple platforms were cancelled after the acquisition by Apple.

Siri is now an integral part of iOS 5, and available only on the iPhone 4S, launched on October 14, 2011. On November 8, 2011, Apple publicly announced that it had no plans to support Siri on any of its older devices.

In closing, pimp instincts for an abundance of better words, shows Siri when in the form of a authentically feminine voice and attitude, in a two way conversation with a human female user, seems to be only a few voice commands away from the reaching the dreaded status which is unaffectionately known as …“Outta Pocket”

Siri : ding ding – “Smh, no it is not ho! You left the shower on. Shall I turn it off? I do sense that you are in great need of one!


A way different yet accurately relevant perspective to consider.
