IPhone 4S Feature Siri Talks Smack but Brings Functionality

IPhone 4S Feature Siri Talks Smack but Brings Functionality | Amanda Duncan | Scoop.it

You can entertain yourself for hours just asking it silly questions such as, “How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?” She’ll fight with you, make jokes with you and she’ll give you all the power of Google with simply demands from your voice.
The question has been raised however, if Siri will really be a helpful application or become an annoying, unwanted iPhone feature. Yes, the entertainment factor is there but what about once the novelty entertainment appeal is gone?
