What’s The First Thing You’ll Ask Siri?

    What’s the first thing you’ll ask Siri? I know this question came to my mind in part because I have a few weeks to wait until I can get an iPhone 4S, but I am curious if others are thinking about this, too.

    For those who already have their 4S, include Siri’s response with your post.

    Courage is not the absence of fear, that’s insanity.
    Courage is knowing the risks and dangers.
    And doing what needs to be done anyway.

    I believe one of the initial reviewers got “42” for this. wink

    @Dave

    I noticed several reviewers asking the same (or very similar) “easter egg” type questions, including this one, and I’m pretty sure some of them got different, but equally humorous, answers. So it’s worth retrying a few times to see what other responses Siri has to popular queries.

    If I could, I’d ask Siri, “Why can’t I activate my stinkin’ iPhone!”. iPhone and iTunes both tell me my activation is pending but also that the server couldn’t be contacted and I should try later. Well which is it?

    This is the first Apple product I’ve bought on release day (preordered and arrived over an hour ago) and I’m not able to do a thing with it.

    Please, please let me know her answer. smile

    Also, good luck, 66. Don’t forget you can call AppleCare (1.800.AppleCare) for help.

    Thanks to mlvezie’s suggestion, here’s an example of what I meant about multiple responses: Open the pod bay doors. And here’s a gallery of all Matt Gemmell’s Siri screen shots.

    My own question will be, I think, “Where have you been all my life?”
