Default Google, MS say Siri will make people look crazy

http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=23072

They really meant stupid, but didn't want to piss off their customers.

I agree, it will get annoying after a while. My friend has the new 4s and tried to "sell" me on it, but it just left me hugging my Android even more.

BTW, Android 4 is out!

I don't have my 4S yet but I'll be using Siri a little, especially when I'm driving. I'm sure people with Android have been using Google's or Vlingo's voice commands long before Siri came along. Nobody said anything about them looking crazy lol.

The difference being, Siri "responds" to you. Google's you just input commands, and it does it. Siri is MUCH different.

For instance, my friend said "give me a *******" Siri responded, "Cannot give you a ******* at this time". It's almost like those annoying GPS devices (Tom Tom). You can even change voices. Seriously, you can carry a conversation with it.

But there is already a HUGE bug.

Even when the phone is locked, Siri can respond to commands, send email, and text messages. Without a password/passcode.
