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?
