Siri: Who Is Leading The Masters?
By mustang6560 on 3/28/12

You: "Who is leading the Masters?"

Siri: "Tiger Woods is currently tied with Rory McIlroy at four-under par."

It's purely a hypothetical situation, but according to, Apple and ESPN are in the process of giving Siri the ability to answer sports related questions.
Evan Coleman, a Cydia developer, noticed that Apple’s servers now recognize sports names as speech tokens for its service. Long story short, asking Siri a string of words like “what’s the temperature in New York City?” would return five tokens, recognizing New York City as one element and not three distinct words. While working on SiriSports, a popular Siri tweak in the Cydia store, Colemen noticed that Apple’s servers are suddenly recognizing team names as a single token. For instance, Siri’s servers now recognize the New York Yankees as a particlular item instead of three distinct words.
I live in a world without the help of a virtual assistant (I own an iPhone 4), but the moment the next iPhone hits the market yours truly will be one of the first in line at the AT&T store to upgrade. Hopefully by then, Apple has updated Siri so I can get sports scores by simply uttering a request.

FYI, Siri requires a network connection to work. Good luck if you're an AT&T customer.

I always marvel at people complaining about apple products. I've always liked them and been happy with their support staff. And like it or not, they are taking over the industry and soon the world! I for one accept and bow to our new ruler.
