    Lets face it, Siri works after you tell it to change message 4 or 5 times. It's horrible and needs major improvements including the crap that says "sorry I Can't do that right now"

    Siri has a hard time understanding my thick southern accent...
    Google Now seems to work flawlessly for me though! :)

    I don't use Siri so I don't have a problem with it. The one time I did it didn't do anything. I think I spoke too softly for it... Use google.

    I find Siri useless.

    The hilarious thing is, it understands my American English requests better than my requests in Chinese, which is my native language. The Chinese data base must be really meager, because Chinese Siri has yet to give me a useful answer. Mostly Siri Chinese asks whether I'd like her to look up my question on the Web. On my iPad 4, I switched to British Siri for the heck of it, so I could randomly tell Siri that I want a cuppa and a biscuit, but he doesn't understand.

    Lol. I just switched on German Siri for the heck of it, to test my wretched and limited German. I told Siri that I wanted a slice of chocolate cake and instead it started playing a CD from my music collection, but it's a CD in French. This is fun even if useless.

    I asked Siri Spanish to find me a cafe con leche. Siri directed me to three places that don't sound promising.

    I used to think Siri sucks but I've gradually grown to appreciate its usefulness. I now really like it. It's more accurate than my typing now.
