    My experience this morning with Siri is a perfect example of why Apple needs to work on and perfect Siri. I tried to do a very simple thing and it just turned into a frustrating mess and after 5 times I just gave up. I'm walking to work I remembered that I left the garage light on and my wife goes to work later than I do so I know she was still home. It's a perfect oppurtunity to use Siri to do something as simple as sending a text message. I've asked Siri to "call my wife" and she knows which contact it is. So I said "send a text message to my wife", Siri says she doesn't have a contact who would I like to send the message to. Frustrated I say my wife's name, Siri updates the message with my wife's name in it I have no idea who it's sending the message. So I cancel and start over this time I speak slower but again it doesn't know who my wife is, after 4 attempts I just cancel it and walk to work. Something so simple turned into a frustrating mess and it's things like that which could make Siri so usefull but people get such a bad experience they don't use it again.
    All of these revolutionary features have their moments. I've gotten some odd results from S Voice, also, but most of the time I've used it, it worked.

    Of course, I must enunciate sans accent, it tends to get hinky if I speak in drawl.

    Not sure what you mean? Lol

    Sent from my ASUS Transformer Pad TF700T
    What I mean is Siri and Google's version haven't been out forever so while it's not a 1.0 product it's still kind of in the early stages lol

    I figured that. Hey its no harm in clarifying right? LOL, Anyhoo, yeah i think both will get better. They are not bad now, just not consistent enough to use everyday in my opinion.

    I've noticed that S Voice is improving as I use it, and the voice to text app is getting better all the time.

    Ricky I am not saying you but many people will have like wife for their wifes name or something like wifey right with ALL their contact info so either way if you have that and not their name then all you have to do is skip what you did and say......Send text message to wife or wifey. It will bring her up and ask you want you want to say. i do it all the time with friends if I don't wantto type or can't because I might be in the car.

    I don't know too much about Chia seeds I use ground flaxseed in everything thought it has natural monounsaturated fats.
    It is but look up Cia seeds and i will tell you how to use them later...way higher then ground flax believe it or not. I use both but take the Chia seeds (tablespoon in a small container) to work and throw it in my greek yogurt I have every day.

    I'm guessing Siri is just jealous of your wife. The app figures if it keeps telling you she doesn't exist maybe you will believe it and have you all to itself.
