    About an hour ago I asked siri how many days until Thanksgiving. Her answer, there is 22 days. I asked again, same answer and again. It was only after asking her what today's date was and then when thanksgiving is and again querying her as to how many days until thanksgiving, I got a, let me think about that, answer with the correct days finally.

    Anyone want to ask and see how many days they get now?

    Although it doesn't bother me, I tried it and I got twenty-two days as well. Today, November 3rd.

    That is weird since Siri knows when Thanksgiving is. Siri is miscounting days-imageuploadedbytapatalk1415082451.680466.jpgSiri is miscounting days-imageuploadedbytapatalk1415082463.349856.jpg

    Point is, it makes one wonder if she can't count the number of days correctly, what else can't she count correctly? This is so basic.

    She's not counting the days specifically. She's asking a webservice, probably Wolfram Alpha, for the answer. So that service is calculating it wrong. Then I would guess that when you just ask when Thanksgiving is, she just pulls up the calendar.

    Could be, but I've asked cortana and blackberry assistant and they both got it right.

    Siri still says 22 days. She seems to be stuck on that number.

    Don't throw it in the trash send it to me. It's a little big for my taste, but I can find a use for it.

    Is this one of those Siri Engineer Jokes that we haven't uncovered yet?

    Today is November 4. I asked Siri how many days until November 6. And she said one day. She must be counting from midnight tonight and counting a full day. In that regard I think 22 days until Thanksgiving is probably correct.

    Seriously? Who does that?

    And besides, why would she say 22 yesterday and today? Something ain't right.

    Funny... I thought the same thing when I read the initial post. You asked and he told you.

    Whatever. Sir is wrong.

    Its very inconsistent. I had three people ask today. Two iPhone 6's said 22 days. An iPhone 5 said 23, the correct answer. Something is amiss in siri land whether you believe it or not. Might be a small insignificant issue but makes me wonder about others.

    Days until can be a tricky question...

    Is it how many full days? Is it the total number of hours divided by 24?

    I asked how many days until Sunday and it counted the days NOT including today. It counts full days

    I asked Siri on what the integral of x^2 was and she gave:

    Siri is miscounting days-imageuploadedbytapatalk1415145616.847289.jpg

    So she uses Wolfram Alpha. What does BlackBerry assistant and Cortana say the integral is?

    You made a common mistake. You checked one search and used that to qualify all searches. Ask Siri "Where should I eat?" She'll return a list of restaurants with Yelp tagged.

    Siri uses multiple search engines. When I ask the Thanksgiving question, she replies "It's 522 hours until then." None of these options show the Wolfram Alpha logo on this question. It's safer to assume the data is being pulled from somewhere else.

    So I did! I just checked the actual wolfram alpha app and got: Siri is miscounting days-imageuploadedbytapatalk1415171667.051568.jpg

    While I have 1 hour until midnight and Siri is now saying there is 520 hours until then or 21.7 days.

    It's strange she answers in hours anyway. I asked for days. She just wants to be difficult =)
