Yeah sure. You buy a $400 phone and they expect you to be a beta tester?

“These are not intentional omissions meant to offend anyone. It simply means that as we bring Siri from beta to a final product, we find places where we can do better, and we will in the coming weeks.”

And if you believe that, once again P.T. Barnum is proved correct.

I would not say that Apple products are crap. Nevertheless, iPhone 4S was a huge marketing mistake in all senses. Apple should have waited a lil bit more and release iPhone 5.

What is the outcome? Just remember “I, robot”, i.e. nothing good. :bigsmile:

Hope is is going to be fixed in the near future.
