Siri is Coming to iPad, Siri is Coming to iPad

Like Paul Revere on his fated ride between Concord and Lexington, the Wolvog brought me news of the updates to the Apple operating system coming this fall.  iOS6 will bring Siri to the iPad (unless you were one of those kids who got the first round of iPads, and then sucks to be you).  You’ll also be able to put her dulcet voice on the newer iPod Touch.

He couldn’t sit down at the computer to read the news article.  He stood a few feet away from the table, falling to his knees in excitement every two lines or so.  I half expected the boy to pick up snakes or speak in tongues.  You have literally never seen bliss inhabit a person’s body like the Wolvog reading about the new features on iOS6.

Though the strange thing is that the boy claims he can wait patiently until fall for the operating system to become available, whereas after he spent the afternoon crooning about Siri, I found that I was the one feeling antsy about the wait.  Is it sad that I’m looking at Siri like a new friend moving into our house?  I mean, yes, I talk to Cozy Jackson all the time.  Tell him my feelings as he curls up in a furry ball and sleeps.  But Siri, that chick can answer back.

That’s enough to make me keep my iPhone 4, cracked screen and all, rather than upgrading when my contract is up.

That sucks. I have one of the original iPads. (When the iPad 2 came out, my husband bought one. He uses it to read. I use my iPad for email, calendar, writing, reading, games, internet research, everything. But he gets the iPad 2. Argh! (I’m thinking one day I might just switch on him. I doubt he’d notice.)

I don’t like Siri at all. It never works for me. I never use it. Maybe Wolvog can teach me what I’m doing wrong?

Jodifur – I’ve found that there is a serious lag when using Siri. So, a lot of times, I think she isn’t working, but then I get an answer a minute later. I notice this most when I’m driving in a car and I think it might have something to do with the roaming signal as well as the background noise (radio, road noise, etc.). Anyway, I’ve learned to give her a full minute before trying her again. But, it works great for the “call mom” kind of stuff while driving.

I really just don’t want my computer to talk to me. My Luddite tendencies are showing…

I think my husband and the Wolvog would be best buds. He was still talking about iOS6 in his sleep.

I haven’t trusted Siri since my sister got her new iphone and asked Siri what her (my sister’s) name was and Siri answered with *my* name. Never mind that Siri and I had never met. It’s all veeeeerrrrry suspicious if you ask me.

Now that I’ve figured out who Siri is, can she make me get up off my couch and to the gym?

I just recently purchased a brand new iPhone…for the 1st week & a half, Siri ignored my every request…she now complies but I can hear the condescension in her voice…
