Apple edits Siri to calm down her inner Lumia fangirl

Apple edits Siri to calm down her inner Lumia fangirl
Now that we’ve all had our lulz over Siri responding to the question “What’s the best cell phone ever?” with the Nokia Lumia 900, Apple has quickly gone to work to correct this response.

Apparently in the past, when Siri was asked, “What is the best smartphone?” she would say something along the lines of “the one you are holding in your hand,” but got tripped up by the ‘ever’ that was added to the question that caused the hilarity the other day.

Now even if you add an ‘ever’ to your inquiry, Siri will respond with a witty response such as, “You’re kidding, right?”

We guess these are the kinds of things that happen when you release beta software on your flagship device and tout it as a key feature, although we do have to admit, that may be one of the quickest fixes we’ve ever seen from Cupertino.

I guess Apple got completely butt hurt with that response, awww poor Apple cry me a river. The things this company does are completely ridiculous. SMH!

The dumbness of this post is even more ridiculous, how the hell is Apple crying? Do you know anything about business. I don't have the time to explain ti thoroughly, I'll just tell you if you own a company/business/product/whatever, it's never good for business to say " X product/business/company is better then yours. If you went to McDonalds and asked the person what the best thing on the menu is and they said "Burger King makes better burgers" How would that be good for profits.

Listen nobody is going asked Siri what the best smart phone is, the average person doesn't do that and if they do, they are not going to return their iPhone 4s for a Lumia 900 because Siri said it was the best, ifans are always satisfied with their phones and will probably laugh at Siri silly answer.

Apple: Siri my child...Lumia is good we know...but we can't admit that in public. Siri: But I love Lumia daddy. Apple: Grrrr...Ground this bitch.

So... In addition to making Siri speak Japanese, this is the only other update to Siri that Apple has released since the premiere of the iPhone 4S.

whats funny to me is that did not mention an Android device ... that must put a dagger in some diehard android fans that not even a digital office assistant recognize the green robot... they say Siri is overrated. Android is overrated...

What must burn you is that if Siri *really* did what it is supposed to do and ask wolframalpha "What is the best phone?", this is the answer it is SUPPOSED to give: Panasonic DECT 6.0 phone. Enter in best smartphone is still the Lumia 900. Enter in best android phone and it is a stupid Samsung Attain on MetroPCS. MAYBE APPLE SUCKS FOR USING WOLFRAM ALPHA FOR SIRI.

I don't get why so many think it's funny having conversations with Apple engineers? Siri is not self-aware, she is programmed to say everything she says.. So the next time you lolz at something she said, she didn't some apple geek engineer did
