Siri the Spoiler


Posted on December 10th, 2012 by John Stewart

After putting the kiddo to bed, I sat down in front of the TV to watch the Packers play the Lions on Sunday night. I had DVRed the game, and was 20-30 minutes behind live TV. As I watched the Lions march down the field, I wondered about the remaining schedule for Green Bay. So I whipped out my phone and asked Siri to “show me the remaining Packers schedule”.

 

Great; she understood me completely.

Argh! Why why WHY Siri are you telling me the score when that is clearly NOT what I asked!?

Fortunately, of course, the Packers managed to overcome the Lions, but still, I wish I’d seen the first quarter domination by Detroit unfold in real time, rather than have Siri spoil it for me through a half-baked answer.
