Siri Offers Witty Responses About September 7 Event

Ahead of Apple's "See You on the 7th" special event next Wednesday, September 7 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time, Siri is now offering up some traditionally witty responses to users that mention the tagline for the upcoming event. iPhone users can test Siri themselves by saying "see you on the seventh."

Apple sent out media invites earlier today for the event, to be held at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, California. There, Apple CEO Tim Cook and other senior executives are expected to announce the iPhone 7 and possibly a second-generation Apple Watch. Less likely is a new MacBook Pro, expected later in the year, but a September announcement cannot be ruled out entirely.

Apple will also likely provide an update on the prospective launch dates of iOS 10, macOS Sierra, watchOS 3, and tvOS 10.

How come they can get Siri to do this crap no problem, but making it function in a useful capacity is so difficult?

Probably because its very easy to add these responses quickly compared to programming it to be resourceful in a real world manner.

It's just frustrating. I'm driving and I'm trying to get Siri to handle a task for me so I don't have to touch the phone, but it never is able to understand exactly what I'm saying, and even if it finally does it just offers to search the web. When I was using the iPhone I'd always just end up doing it myself at a red light.

But oh, Siri can hand out useless witty responses just fine. Frustrating.

Some of you are so humorless it's amazing. This response takes one intern being tasked with writing a string of code. No resources of even minuscule amounts have been put into this instead of "making siri better".

Maybe they'd be less dour if the jokes were actually funny or Siri was flat out amazing. But neither are true, and symbolism does factor in. Honestly, I'm not looking for Siri to be funny or human-like. I want her to be concise. It's like when I ask what the temperture is and she gives it to me then says "hot" or "brr". Cute for a demo or the first time, but over and over again it's just damn annoying. I don't need banter from my phone, just information.
