Siri, I Love You!

When my daughter and her husband bought their new iPhone 4S, they were in for an exciting experience. The iPhone 4S was their first iPhone.

Any time you purchase a new phone, getting to know your new phone takes some time. For a first phone to be the iPhone 4S was a learning process that was at times interesting; at other times frustrating.

And also FUN! Especially when you talk to Siri. Apple says, "Siri on iPhone 4S lets you use your voice to send messages, make calls, set reminders, and more. Just speak naturally. Siri understands what you say." 

Anybody who owns the new iPhone 4S agrees. But it's the "and more" that appeals to me and I can't wait (but I have to) to get my new iPhone 4S – because of Siri.

After a few frustrating starts, my son-in-law told Siri, "Siri, you are worthless!"

Siri responded, "Now, now. Don't get upset. I'm only trying to help."

Well, that opened a conversation that began a relationship with Siri that continues to be filled with lots of laughter.

When I told my daughter-in-law about my daughter and son-in-law's experience, she had never thought to use Siri on her iPhone 4S for anything other than serious Siri inquiries, so when she asked, "Siri, do you love me?" Siri responded, "Impossible!"

Another time when my daughter asked if Siri loved her, Siri said, "I am incapable of love."

Once, when my daughter said, "Siri, I love you," Siri said, "You are the wind beneath my wings."

But my favorite Siri comment so far happened after my daughter said, "Siri, I love you," and that time Siri responded, "I bet you say that to all your products."

NOT Happy With Firefox – Back to Safari

For the past couple of months I have had nothing BUT problems with Firefox (I'm running version 3.6.19). EVERY SINGLE TIME I open a new page, or return to another page, or shift back and forth between pages, I get this:

Warning: Unresponsive script

A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.

Script: chrome://fctoolbar771f303798854423b50fa5ede4854e26/content/fctoolbar.js:1

After viewing several pages that offer possible solutions to fix the problem, most of which would require me to find this and that and change this or that or upgrade again (I have the latest version for a Mac), I have finally given up.


I'm back with Safari. If Safari is good enough for the iPad 2 and the new iPhone 4S, it's good enough for my old MacBook Pro. Ever since I switched back to Safari I have had NO PROBLEMS!
