The Woz on Siri

 “I have a lower success rate with Siri than I do with the voice built into the Android, and that bothers me,” Woz says. “I’ll be saying, over and over again in my car, ‘Call the Lark Creek Steak House,’ and I can’t get it done. Then I pick up my Android, say the same thing, and it’s done. Plus I get navigation. Android is way ahead on that.”

Exactly. I’ve tried Siri a few times and was left seriously underwhelmed. With all the hype it’s gotten, it’s really, really disappointing. That being said, NLP is something that needs time and massive amounts of different user interaction to perfect; in other words – the more people that use Siri, the better Siri gets. I have no problem with that. What I have a problem with is marketing that it works perfectly. And I still stand by my opinion that Google is going to do this significantly better in the near future.

I’d like to end with another quote from Mr. Wozniak:

“I love the beauty of [the iPhone]. But I wish it did all the things my Android does, I really do.”

So what’ll be? Pretty or powerful? I think I’ll stick with the latter; after all, it’s power that gets the work done.
