I am American, but I watch a lot of British television.
Sometimes British words are just better … more descriptive … than those we “American-English” speakers have available.
And so was the case yesterday afternoon.
Siri and I are just getting acquainted. I’ve updated my iPad to iOS6, and she was included. I spent the afternoon with her the other day and she gladly told me the weather, updated some sports scores, suggested a few restaurants and let me know how many days there were until Christmas.
So I thought we had a pretty good start with our relationship.
Until this exchange:
I set my iPad on a stand on the kitchen counter. I was planning on calling out the names of some songs for her to play on the iPad while I did my chores.
But first, polite as I am, I said “Good Morning, Siri!”
(ok, I’ll digress, here. I do admit it is a whole other story we could do about actually talking to (greeting) your Apple device. Yes, I do realize I could have skipped the “good morning” part. 🙂 But we’ll let it go for now.)
So back to the kitchen:
Me: “Good Morning, Siri.”
Siri: (in her Siri voice): “Hello. (pause) And by the way, it is 12:06”
WHOA! She was letting ME know (in her Siri voice) that 12:06 is technically no longer ‘morning’!
That’s the only word for it.
