So, there are some new Siri ads out today that at first glance are amusing and informative. But are they misleading? Now, this wouldn't be the first time that Apple could be in trouble over Siri's (in)ability to understand the spoken word, but let's take a look at one of the ads, featuring the venerable Samuel L. Jackson. In this spot, he says, "Remind me in an hour to put the gazpacho on ice."
So, this nerd found that decidedly... unlikely to be understood by Siri, and tried it himself... What did I discover? Well, read on...
OK, I'll cut straight to the point. I tried, many, many times to get Siri to understand that I wanted my gazpacho on ice, and failed, miserably. Here are some results. I got bored after exactly twenty attempts at trying to make Siri understand my tomato needs.
So there you go. Epic failure, at least on my part. But what about you out there? Can you get Siri to understand?
