Default Who's tried using Siri?

well, hadn't tried out Siri on my iPhone until yesterday. It's really quite fun to use any iPhone users out there?

I haven't had any success with Siri. It always gets something partially wrong. I have a really deep voice which it must have a problem with. I can't rely on it to even dial a phone number for me... never get the person I want. I've tried other users phone's... same thing.

I asked Siri when Felder will ship my Hammer A3-31 that was supposed to be shipped 2 months ago-
Answer- Monday ( backed up w/ a phone call)
I really hope this is not going to be like a Laguna nightmare situation again

I had an iPhone for 4 months and never had much luck with Siri. Maybe it was the questions I asked: why do we exist?, where did the Universe come from?, is there life after death?

Then yesterday, the whole phone just quit on me. Brick dead. Won't turn on or take a charge. Did I make it think too much and it fried its little mind?

When I asked Siri 'Whats the difference between a duck?' she quickly produced the correct answer! That was truly unexpected.

That is also a good answer, but the one that was delivered to me forty years ago was:

One leg is both the same.

It is referred to in Wikipedia at

Anti-humor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
where the answer given is:

One of its legs are both the same.

Siri extracted the answer from something called WolframAlpha, and gave the same answer I received forty years ago.

So my question now is: Was Siri right?
