Of the Gazillion apps available online, many of which clearly came into existence as the end product of an IT technician whos'e motives, to me at least, are as clear and relevant as the antics of a squirrel on crystal meth.

"Ill Be Back"- Sooner

Siri, the personal assistant app,built into the iPhone 4S, is clearly not one of the above. To get started, you don't need to download anything. Turning on the iPhone 4S you're asked to set up some details, such as enabling location information and using Siri, so be sure to choose Yes to these options.

"Cull Mam Right away."

When first prompted to set up Siri, you’re asked to select your language preference. Your options range from English (United States), English (Australia), English (United Kingdom), and also include French, and German.

Siri not only speaks a language you understand, it's also enables your new personal assistant to better understand your personality. For example, someone from the United States or Canada may say "Call mom" differently to an English-speaking person from the United Kingdom or Australia. They may sound like this: Cull mam, "Coll mum" etc

Spot The Differences

Americans obviously have vastly differing accents, too, for example, there are definitely subtle differences between folks from Boston, Long Island, Dallas or Kentucky. However, American English can differ vastly from the English spoken in Sydney or London. Unless you make sure to choose the correct language from the list you may have be unable to understand Siri and vice-versa.

Siri has a female voice, (Voiceover artist Susan Bennett) in the U.S. This may not be the case in other countries (Like in the U.K., where the Siri voice is a male person).

1st November 2016 (#) Hi , Thank you for being on my readers list. I have been searching for about 2 years for a write for cash site which works as easily as wikinut and pays like Bubblews did in their heyday! One of our wikinutters, passed this information on to me of a brand new cash writing site which is similar to Bubblews and it pays its writers for original work. I joined and find their pay system very rewarding.
If you could use a few extra dollars like I do, and would like more details please join here:

Kindest regards,

Andre' (Tranquilpen)
PS: Many wikinut and Bubblews writing community are already there!
