Siri - the voice activated assistant on the iPhone 4S mentioned on the last page of the article. It helps if people read the whole thing I guess

As for the ads - the advertisements show slick, satisfied customers seamlessly asking their phones useful questions like "Do I have an appointment today?" to which Siri, the voice activated assistant replies instantly and correctly.

Down the bottom of the commercial, in very small print, there is a disclaimer to that states *sequences shortened* for the advertisement.

What this means in the world of "advertising" is that there is no seamless interaction. The *shortened sequence* aspect culls the reality that you have to repeat yourself incessantly to which Siri still does not do the right thing. Ergo, the ad stretched the truth and Siri is bloody useless.

And after seeing the ad, my sister 'had to' upgrade her iPhone 3, despite the fact I pointed out what the *sequence shortened* meant. She was disappointed, I was right - and I could not resist telling her so

Clear now everyone?

I guess I don't have "stLight". Whatever that is.

Here's the errors I get on display with IE8.

Well Patrick that does clear it up. Siri was/is a borked phone feature, we know IP4S is an iPhone 4s. Just referring to Siri, IP4S, and slick ads made no sense. I've yet to see any ads though.

None of us who use IE8 or IE9 can see the page Shawn linked to. The link you provided to the last page, however, did work for me and I can use the Previous arrow to access page 2 of the article. Page one is still inaccessable.
