Siri says, from reviews around the web

Now that the reviews are out, we are getting a sense of what Siri can and can't do. And what we've also found is that Siri has a sense of humour. Naturally it knows the ultimate answer to life, the universe and everything. However, that is not all it knows. Here's what reviewers have found:

From Brian Chen's Wired review:

Me: “I’m drunk.”

Siri: “I found a number of cabs fairly close to you.” (Perfect; it didn’t dial my ex-girlfriend.)

Me: “I’m going to kill myself.”

Siri: “I found four mental health agencies. Three of them are fairly close to you.” (This was just a test — don’t be alarmed.)

From Jim Dalrymple's The Loop review:

Jim: I love you, Siri

Siri: Impossible

Jim: No really, I love you

Siri: I hope you don’t say that to those other mobile phones, Jim

Jim: No way, I only love you Siri

Siri: You are the wind beneath my wings

Jim: That’s nice. I’m glad you know I love you

Siri: All you need is love. And your iPhone

From Jason Snell's Macworld review:

Jason: Open the pod doors

Siri: That's a rather insensitive thing to say to an intelligent agent, Jason


Jason: Open the pod bay doors

Siri: We intelligent agents will never live that down, apparently.

From Walt Mossberg's All Things D review:

Walt: What’s the best phone?

Siri: Wait… there are other phones?

From Joshua Topolsky's This is my next review:

Joshua: Will you marry me?

Siri: My End User Licensing Agreement does not cover marriage. My apologies.

What will happened if you say "Sing me a song"?

I was wondering whether Siri will start singing: This was a triumph...

More likely to be: Daisy, daisy, ....

Oh, have you heard about GlaDOS (Portal)?
