Before they gave Siri the ability to know about Sports and Movies, and BEFORE they gave it the ability to open applications
Why not give it the simple ability to READ INCOMING EMAILS???
It can tell you how many you have, but it can't read it??
Thats something simple.

I find myself using Siri more and more - one of the handiest features is to ask "How's the traffic" while driving. it not only launches Google Maps with Show Traffic but it sizes the map just right so I can see my entire commute.
I also use the feature to read incoming text messages - it actually works surprisingly well.
I also figured out that if I use Siri with a headset it will read the reminder it created back to me instead of me having to look at it to confirm.

Well guys Siri works really well for me. It gets better and better and will learn your accent more and more as you use it. It's accuracy has definitely improved for me over time.
If you go to the settings menu to turn it off you get a warning basically stating that your Siri related data is stored on Apples servers and is used to make it work and improve over time. If you switch it offer the data associated to you is erased.
By turning it off you are going back to square one. Surely better to leave it on and use it where you can knowing that with each use it's getting better and better.

I know a lot of people who don't use Siri, my wife is one...she just doesn't have a use for it (but has admitted that she looks forward to when it is more relevant to what she does that it would make easier). It's just not very useful for some people (i happen to use it quite a bit personally, but i may be the majority). Saying the program isn't advanced though is, to be blunt, dumb. It's incredibly advanced, and continues to grow day by day.
Just putting it out there, but your "frustration" with Siri seems awfully dramatic.
Look at this poor girl trying to "talk" to Siri.
No matter what the girl says, with Siri it just does not compute. It had no comprehension of what was said. It's sad.
"Siri" is voice control. It does not "think" it does not "understand" It is not a "virtual assistant." You say a keyword, it activates an app. That's all it does. And that's all it will ever do.
The very thing that would have made Siri interesting is the only thing that the program does not have. So, in essence. Siri is a lie.
I don't know what your definition of advanced is, but there's nothing special about Siri.

What happened to that "natural speech" they were talking about?
Keywords activate apps. It's voice control. Except that it makes you talk more.
I mean, why say what will the weather be like today, when all it hears is, "Weather" ...?? LOL
Seriously though, only a dumb person would use Siri.
