With Apple's Siri personal assistant being integrated into the forthcoming iPhone 4S, the company is moving to shut down the existing standalone Siri Assistant application, with the app already having been removed from the App Store. Existing users of the app are also being greeted with a notice informing them that the service will be shut down as of October 15th, the day after the iPhone 4S launch.
I've been replaced! The new Siri is even smarter and better-looking than me, and waiting for you on the iPhone 4S. I'll be leaving for home Oct 15th.
Until then... how can I help you?
Siri Assistant launched in February 2010 when Siri was still an independent company. Apple acquired Siri soon after, but has kept Siri Assistant on the App Store and functioning since that time.
