LifeWithSiri.com is a new website that was launched today to present daily screenshots of choice Siri Quips and Tips, both on the Web and by free email subscription.
Siri is the virtual “personal assistant” on the iPhone 4S that uses advanced voice-recognition techniques to perceive the meaning of natural human speech. Siri responds in a pleasant feminine voice and also spells out her response in text. If Siri needs more information to complete a task, she asks for it.
“Ever since the iPhone 4S burst on the scene in mid-October, Siri has attracted most attention for her often hilarious responses, but she also has serious capabilities,” said Jodi Dery, developer of the website. “LifeWithSiri.com is the first website to introduce a daily service to keep up with Siri, presenting each morning new screenshots of both a laugh-provoking Siri Quip and an especially useful Siri Tip.”
“We feel that presenting Siri’s responses in this concise daily format will help people remember the best questions to ask Siri and the best way to get good results. And, for those who have an appetite to feast on lots of Siri responses at one time, we also provide easy access to our fast-growing database of over 300 Siri responses, along with links to many other Siri-related webpages and videos” Dery added.
Siri’s responses, according to Dery, “have provided tons of fun and surprises.” For example, if you ask Siri “Where do babies come from?” Siri is likely to respond: “I found some baby stores fairly close to you” followed by the names and addresses of those stores.
Some Siri answers can be jarring, but still funny. If you hear someone saying on their iPhone “I need to hide a body,” you shouldn’t call the police. Chances are that the iPhone user is trying to entertain a friend, knowing that Siri’s response is likely to be: “What kind of place are you looking for? Reservoirs…Dumps…Swamps…Metal Foundries…Mines…?”
If you ask Siri, “What is the meaning of life,” you are likely to get many clever responses, such as: “I find it odd that you would ask this of an inanimate object” or “All evidence suggests it’s chocolate” or “Try and be nice to people, avoid eating fat, read a good book every now and then, get some walking in, and try to live together in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations.”
The specific tips will cover areas such as querying contacts, finding contacts, relationships, adding events, changing events, asking about events, setting alarms, using a timer, sending messages, checking messages, responding to messages, checking up on friends, finding places, getting directions, sending texts, reading texts, replying to texts, playing music, creating and finding notes, making phone calls, requesting reminders, checking the market, checking the weather forecast, searching the web for information, etc.
The Quip and Tip of the Day featured on LifeWithSiri.com will be different each day. Previously published Quips will be added to the website’s database, divided into two groups – “The Funniest Siri Answers” and “Siri Answers to Naughty Questions” – all of which will be accessible on the website.
