I’ve been playing a silly little game on my iPhone called Zombie Café. You infect your local townspeople as zombies, and they work for you in your restaurant/café. You make recipes, keep customers coming into your restaurant, level and get more recipes. So on and so on. It’s a pretty good time waster. When you are cooking a recipe, the game will notify you when whatever you are cooking is done so that it won’t burn on the stove. You get a pop-up on the screen and you hear “BRAINS!” Click below to hear audio-notification:
Last night, my wife Kim was dictating a grocery list to me of thanksgiving items we needed to cook for thanksgiving dinner today. As Kim tells me an item, I tell Siri “Add to grocery list.” Siri replies, “What should I add to your grocery list?” Then I would tell Siri something like “french cut green beans” or “condensed milk.” Siri would then reply, “OK, I can add this to your grocery list in Reminders.” Then you confirm or cancel. I was just adding every day, run-of-the-mill items. I’m sure you can guess now where this story is going.
I had already added four or five items to my grocery list. Again, I say “Add to grocery list.” Siri replies, “What should I add to your grocery list?” The moment I open my mouth to say the next grocery item, Zombie Café makes the audio-notify sound “BRAINS!” Then Siri says, “OK, I can add this to your grocery list in Reminders” and the word Brains was on the screen as Siri waited for me to confirm or cancel.
I laughed so hard I nearly pissed the couch. I’m glad that Kim was sitting there or else she wouldn’t have believed me when I told her. Also, I have a witness to corroborate my story.
This true story is just proof that Siri can understand any kind of speech.
Good night droogies.
