A nice catch by Shawn, but more interesting is that he feels he treats Siri like a person. I, for one, treat her better — last night I caught myself saying to Siri: “Please, set a time for 20 minutes.” I mean who uses “please” anymore?

My guess, 95% percent of people that use Siri, speak like they are naturally speaking to a human. That’s not because we think Siri is a person — no — I’m guessing it is because Siri actually understands us1 when we use our natural language.


  1. Mostly.
