    Do I have actual data re. Yelp or WolframAlpha on Google without Siri? No. But it stands to reason that if you aren't using Siri (which I would assume is a pretty small % of aggregate searchs) then the only conclusion is that these sites are actually hit much harder by one of the search providers. Now, as to revenue splits of those searches, therein lies the real question. Does Apple have to pony up $$'s everytime a Siri request for info from Yelp for example is requested?


    BTW, I didn't intend to be crass re. your wealth Your comments are actually fairly cogent most of the time, and no, sorry but I don't have a hat.


    Cheers mates

    If Siri is in Beta, I bet there is a way they could engineer to work as an App and sell on App Store for the iPad2.

    Yes, get the coming iPad 3, i think.

    Oh sure .... start off with the perjorative 1%-er comments, toss in the typical 'fanboy' classifications and the snide asides about Apple's commercial morals ...... and end with "Peace out, it isn't a flamethrower site". Seriously?

  • bilbothejust Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    Now Michael, don't get all bunched up. First of all, it's pejorative, not 'perjorative', but I'm not a grammar school teacher. Secondly, I apologized for my comment about the 1%er's. Thirdly, I love to use fanboy whenever I can because it has a certain ring to it...kind of a humorous thing. Just like the 'peace out', being that I'm a 60's veteran and always love to throw that in just for grins.


    So, to the crux of the matter...Apple's moral compass (commercially speaking)...from a strictly capitalistic viewpoint they made the right decision to market Siri only on the 4s. Look what it has done for the sales for that device. Who can argue that logic? I suppose my remark goes more a wish on my part that after some period of time (let's say 3 months) that Apple (which makes oodles of money) would allow Siri to run on the iPad 2. It's not that big of a request for the richest company in the US and would do more to improve Apple loyalty. That's all I am saying on this matter. I'm happy either way with my iPad and iPhone. So, serioiusly? Yes. It's not an oxymoron to use flamethrower and peace in the same sentence.

    How to avoid sounding dumb when you write about Apple


  • bilbothejust Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    Hahah...thanks @Alancito. Your article made me chuckle. Can't say I agree with it all, but it was very entertaining. I'm not putting on a dunce cap though just for using 'fanboy' but I know what your saying. It is a trite, banal term and frankly, I'm sick of it too. It does sound dumb. I'll change me autocorrect to replace it with fanatic.

    it is fanboi, not fanboy.


    I am one! One who just sold 25% of his Apple stock today to free up some money to buy a few other up-and-coming stocks.

  • bilbothejust Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    You're right Dahveed. I can't keep up with the current lingo since I am an old ****, but sure do get a kick out of all these messages. Congrats on the stock sale! I understand AAPL has hit a new high today!

    Youre all wrong. The reason Apple isn't putting Siri on the iPad is that because Apple can't guarantee it will work. On  the iPhone 4s ull always get 3G from a carrier or ull be connected to Internet. Don't forget that you pay money every month for the iPhone. For the iPad Apple can't guarantee the pad will always hav internet connection. Again, remember you don't pay every month for the iPad. Only once to get it. Apple also won't put it on the iPod because Siri has gone from "Beta version to alpha" because instead of learning from questions and getting smarter it has gotten dumber. It is not answering questions the same good way it did when it came out. Apple is trying to fix he problem. I don't think people pay eveyr month for internet connection on the iPod so thast may be another reason for not putting it on the iPad.

    EMp440...not sure if you know this but with my iPad, iphone, or Mac, I don't pay apple every month. I pay AT&T. Paying every month is a cellphone service thing. And with the 4S, you connect and disconnect to the Internet every time you put it in airplane mode. so to re-itterate your first line of your reply, you are all wrong...

  • emp440 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    no im not. If any of you read an article once in a while instead of just pulling out invalid information then these responses would be better. Flyingwulf, go on Bing or Google and type in "Why isn't siri on the iPad 2." Put this into ur url

    Wow, that's a great opinion article from a random site who may or may not be reputable!

  • emp440 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    i saw it on more than one site!

  • stevejobsfan0123 Level 8 Level 8 (38,870 points)

    Oh, well THAT's different. THAT makes it true. Now, since you are being rude to other posters, let me tell you why you're wrong:


    The iPad is NOT necessarily Wi-Fi only, it is capable of connect to the Internet on a cellular network. So that rules out your claim about making it useless because it's Wi-Fi only. And for the other ones, setting up Personal Hotspot is very easy so you can share a 3G connection with an iPod touch, Mac, or any other device that would only have Wi-Fi otherwise. And, lastly, what's wrong with using Siri on Wi-Fi? There's Wi-Fi available almost anywhere. Why can't I use Siri at home on my home Wi-Fi?


    Now kindly leave the discussion, as you have nothing to offer except a rude attitude towards others who are trying to help, and, as you like to call it, "invalid information."
