I use Siri all the time because it's the quicker way to set an alarm.

Siri doesn't pronounce my name right, no matter how many times I've tried. I too have an accent.

Speaking of which. The default Siri is female American. My brother changed his to male Australian.

I didn't even know there was a male version.

My female Australian Siri amused some people when I was in the States.

i use google now sometimes, usually when i'm too fucked up and want to find out something. i have no experience with siri though, because i've never owned an iphone (yet i work for apple, i know). i have an ipad, but it's so old that if ipads now have that feature, mine definitely doesn't. it doesn't even have a camera.

also my final grades have been posted for this semester and ugh i'm peeved. my grade for my capstone sucks. i'm just trying to tell myself that i got an a in my other class, i was working full-time too, and the professor who was advising me (more like dictating everything i did) had insanely high standards that really made it impossible to get a better grade.

I would make fun, but I met somebody with a flip phone recently.

It was like talking to a time traveller from the Stone Age.

I don't think my battery particularly cares if I open Siri for ten seconds to tell her to set an alarm for 8am.

Do you have to time travel to spend time with him too?

My Samoan ex tried to use Siri once in front of me.

I laughed so hard I thought I was going to rupture something. Or receive an iPhone shaped dent in my face.

My partner was freaking out at level 52 of the Sky Tower yesterday. Today, I discovered you can get to level 60.

Umm yeah I don't think I'll climb the antenna I'm good now

Also the waitress at the pub today.....I don't know if she knew how see-through her pants were. The fact I could point it out to my partner and even she said she knew I wasn't looking at the lady's ass was because you could not fucking miss the very visible g-string and ass cheeks when she went into brighter light.

Me: I wonder if she knows how see-through her pants are, and no I'm not looking. If you're going to ask why, just wait for her to walk past.
Partner (next time this waitress walks past): Holy shit!
