When Dr. O. paid a house call recently, she needed to use her iPhone 4S. Dr. O. was hoping that Siri, the famous personal digital assistant, could give directions to the next house call. I challenged Dr. O. and asked if we could conduct a little test, to see if Siri could get into some cat talk on the spot. Is there anything that the much-hyped Siri can’t say or do?
If Siri and I become friends, I will instruct her to recite the following whenever an IPhone user calls to search for feline adoption agencies: “I’m very happy about this, and I can always take the request. I, too, am a Cat Lady.”
Query of the Day: Does Siri recognize your “cat voice”?
