    I just started playing with Siri, sorry but I had other things to do.
    Anyway, I think My Siri is lazy. I ask questions and all it wants to do is direct me to the web.
    Maybe my iPad has a dumb Siri.
    Not impressed.

    Be fair! With all the strange questions, even SIRI needs a rest now and again.

    This was the first time I had ever asked Siri a question.
    An ad for the Nook prompted me to ask: How
    much does the Earth weigh?
    Trying to understand how Siri works.
    Is it normal for Siri to say " would you like me to check the web for you?" Then just get me a link, or typically does Siri tell you an answer.
    Am I expecting too much from Siri?

    From what I've seen Siri continues until she has an answer, which is much better than "I don't know". I feel an answer is an answer so it doesn't matter where that answer is from. As far as I know there isn't one single source that has the answer to every question so I welcome any answer regardless of its origin.

    Who needs Siri when you have iPF?


    Mass of Earth = 5.97219 × 10^24 kilograms

    That's 5,972,190,000,000,000,000,000 metric tonnes.

    Now I have a question. How do you type the 24 in my answer as a superscript on the iPad/iPhone?
