[citation][nom]borisblade7[/nom]Yeah its overhyped big time. Its a thousand times faster and accurate to just google it. Yeah the future will be voice activated, but the future isnt here yet. Siri is nothin special, just the usual overhyped Apple product. Maybe one of these days i'll see an apple product I have interest in, but this is yet another product thats either all hype, or made for idiots and has a mile long list of what it cant do that i can easily do on any non apple device.[/citation]
People who use Siri also use it to dictate long pieces of text far far quicker than they can type on a mobile phone. Remember, it's a mobile phone we're comparing to. Not a keyboard.
When you compare the time to open up a browser, navigate to google, type in your search, find the right link, click it, and read it, vs just saying 'What is the weather today?' - Siri is much quicker.
And that's before we even cover the fact that you can use Siri with no hands, whilst doing other things, jogging etc, or the fact that you can send text messages etc with it.
To focus purely on a search engine search vs a user on a PC keyboard is to misunderstand the purpose of Siri.
