A One-On-One Interview With Siri -- The Next Big Thing In Mobile Computing

You know what's so amazing about the new iPhone 4S? It's the Siri -- the first of its kind mobile app that transforms your iPhone into a human-like personal assistant.

Siri is no more an ordinary talking app you would want to think. It is a super smart personal assistant that talks and thinks like a human! Throw Siri random questions, and you'll be suprised how fast he can organize his thoughts and say what he thinks is the most appropriate answer for the question.

Below is the excerpt of the interview courtesy of Art, another tech guy from Manila, PH. Most of the questions came from his Facebook and Twitter friends.

Art: Do you read newspapers?
Siri: Sorry Art, I can only read incoming text messages.
Art: What do you think is a good newspaper to read.

Art: What is your favorite newspaper then.
Siri: I am not allowed to divulge that information.
Art: Thank you Siri.

Siri: Goodbye, see you soon.
