                                               Siri's secrets 


   Siri

Siri is an IOS application, and for further applications, after the IOS. For the people who already have IOS or further applications they would be informed about Siri. Although the people out there that have a lower application than the IOS, this may be a bit more information than the people who already have Siri, and have a good understanding of it.

   What is siri?

  Siri is a personal, voice that obeys and answers certain questions and other things such as- messaging someone, calling someone, or booking a table at a restaurant, and etc. Siri is a word that not many people know the meaning to, the name is actually Norwegian meaning, “beautiful woman who leads you to victory.” With research many people say, “Apple paid more than $2 million dollars for Siri to be on their mobile search.”

   Is siri for you?

  Although all things, including voice activation has its pros and cons. Siri is great for searching, or typing long terms, emails and/or messages. Siri is also useful for setting alarms and/or reminders. It’s simply just a voice activation to do your task. However, this all may sound so good, but everything in life has it’s not really as good side, which some people do not love, which also Siri also has. Siri is only available if it is connected to the internet. Sometimes voice commands are not clearly heard by the Iphone as you speak. Also one drawback that affects many people I’ve seen, and I have noticed myself is there is no silent button for the Siri, even by lowering the volume the voice of Siri, it does not get lowered. Although Siri has a few disadvantages over all I think Siri is a great invention and has been useful to many people, including myself.


   My opinion

  As a user of siri my opinion on it will be a useful, less time consuming, voice activation that is useful to the public and me. Like me others have said very positive as well as and negative comments on siri. We have also discussed in class about variety of other voice activations like the Dragon, it is a device that is activated by your voice and the commands, for example to email someone you would just have to tell it to email someone.
