Siri Struggling To Keep Up With Demand

I have read online that Siri was having some issues. Though when I gave Siri a try, it did not seem to have any issues. However, I did notice that it seems to have issues understanding what I am saying.

I think this is expected. Apple has sold over 4 million iPhone 4S. Even buy Apple standard, that is a lot of iPhones. So we have to keep in mind that maybe Apple did not expect this much traffic in the beginning. More than that, I don't think Apple realize why people were buying up the iPhone 4S.

Perhaps, Apple thought people were buying the iPhone 4S for the better camera, faster CPU, and people just upgrading in general. I think the powers that be at Apple totally underestimated the draw of Siri.

Furthermore, keep in mind that Siri is still in beta. I think there will is down to be a lot of growing pains. Furthermore Apple will likely increase capacity as well as Siri's abilities.

When I was demoing Siri for my coworkers this afternoon, they were very impressed with Siri's responses and the speed. Moreover, they were very impressed with the accuracy.

Let's see what happened over the over the next few days. Let's see if Apple is able to get Siri back online more consistently.

Anyway, I hope this doesn't dent in user enthusiasm for Siri. I highly doubt that it'll happen. Furthermore I can't wait to see Siri when he gets out of beta. Siri represents the potential for artificial intelligence and a new form of mobile computing.

Note: this post was dictated on the iPhone 4S.
