Ask Siri the average airspeed of an unladen swallow - She apparently has never watched "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"


ha! and strange as wolframalpha gets it right (and quotes monty python)

They should crowdsource adding strange bits of fiction culture


I should note that people are citing this video as evidence Siri doesn't work and that it does. Clearly a distribution in expectations. I suspect it is first useful for doing things like setting alarms and texting while driving - things that take too much screen attention, but are easily articulated with a very small universe of possibilities. It would also potentially make an interesting interface for watching programs on the big screen.
