siri voice recognition still sucks compared to google's. can't even give me directions home. 3 of us at work were trying to get it to understand and give us the correct responses and it was wrong almost every time. We weren't deliberately trying to trip it up either since one of us was the apple fanboy of the office and it all started when he started talking about how awesome siri was.
The one thing I DO like about siri is its use of wolfram alpha, which I absolutely love. But I can just use wolfram alpha because siri doesn't always use it. I asked it what a parametric equation was, and you'd think it would default to asking wolfram that type of question, but it just wanted to google it.
