I’m not sure what great technological advances the iPhone 5 was (or better yet “is”) supposed to deliver but the reviews coming in for the iPhone 4S are pretty good. Particularly a new voice recognition feature called Siri. Presumably that’s what the “S” is about.
Siri is more than voice recognition software. It includes artificial intelligence, making it a sort of virtual assistant.
Today I ran across this funny little video from The New York Times that pits Siri against a human assistant.
I think it’s a draw, but then how many of us have a human assistant...
