Siri application taken down from the App Store

If I was a Siri user, I'd be a little angry by this attitude : better selling the new product not only with the adding of fonctionality but also with the withdrawal of a fonctionnality for previous product

This is such a classic example of how Apple operates. They can't just be honest with their customers or let their customers know they're able to do this already. Instead, they buy out Siri & restrict this feature to their new handset in a cash grab because they can't be innovative anymore. It makes me laugh when I think that the hallmark presentation of the iPhone 4S' demo was just an downloaded App. Most iSheep will never know that Apple is masquerading Siri as something new with their left hand... while their right hand is removing the App from the current handsets. Shameful!

Except what the app did is really not even close to what the Assistant does on the iPhone 4S. Let's quietly ignore that, right?
iSheep...truly creative, speaks a lot about making a meaningful and powerful argument...oh, wait, it doesn't.

So, how much did Apple pay the inventors of voice and the inventors of the concept of search as patent fee?

Was this app free on the app store? I can't imagine it was. They should at least allow people that already have the app to keep it and just not allow new downloads. I'm by no means an apple hater but this is ridiculous I mean are they so desperate for new features on their new phone that they have to take them away from older ones?

You might not imagine it, but it was a free app. So, since you are basing your comments on a false assumption there's really no need to go any further since the very beginning is already wrong.

Welcome to Apple's walled garden. Kinda like the Garden of Eden, except the devil didn't rip the apple away from Eve's hand.

Oh, a Nazi reference. Would be nice if you actually understood the references before they are made. Sad.

Much as I hate the total control Apple tries to have over their product, Siri is supposed to be an integrated part of iOS 5. They're not making you purchase the iPhone 4s, they're just making you upgrade your iOS.

The announcement was that Siri only works on Iphone 4s according to the info on the live blog i read during the keynote.....what a bold move. like i said before, someone thinks their crap dont stink!

Fiveizzo, I am commenting on Apple issues because my contract is up, has been up for two months and I can choose any platform I wish. After comparing I phone 4s with GSII and looking at both app stores. And then considering how i-big brother controls their minions. I will be a proud owner of the new, nexus prime.
BTW You are and my dad can beat up ur dad and you are times infinity, bla bla bla

Wow, creative...oh, wait, it's really not.

iFans understand that Siri is just for the iphone 4S, it's not an ios 5 feature, please read it twice if necessary. You'll be fooling yourselves looking for Siri on your iphone 4 when you install ios 5. This is like display mirroring on the ipad 2, Apple disabled it on the ipad 1, only to have something else "revolutionary" in order to sell their new tablet.

damm all this hate from non iphone users... what do you guys care... ohh I see is a perfect scneario to bash on Apple...well I gues the SGSII wore down on you guys now is the Prime... and 2 weeks after that you guys will be bored again...until the the next Android phone comes out
22. umm...what? (unregistered)
I may just be ignorant but how is siri that much different from the vlingo app that blackberries and androids have been running for years? It seems like apple users are making a huge deal out of something that is old news.

I was a SIRI user and it did NONE of the things it does on iPhone 4s...just allowed the ability to dictate or have TXT messages read back...From what I saw on the Apple event SIRI is now on steroids!!! (Not to mention the upgraded camera.) I will be buying the iPhone 4s ASAP!!!!
Baaaa Baaaa Baaaaa LOL!!!!!

As an apple user who found siri on his own, and is now being TOLD I will no longer have the option to use this free app unless I upgrade to a $500 phone I am, needless to say, angry. Steve Jobs in turning on his grave. WTF apple.
