Mr Wozniak recently spoke about Siri while he was attending a farm dedicated to saving malnourished and neglected horses.
“A lot of people say Siri. I say poo-poo. I was using it to make reservations long before Apple bought it,” said Mr Wozniak.
He is reported to have told a crowd at the farm that Siri was better before it was acquired by Apple.
“I would say, ‘Siri, what are the five largest lakes in California?’ and it would come up, one, two, three, four, five. And I would ask ‘What are the prime numbers greater than 87?’ and they would come up all in a row. Then Apple bought Siri’, said Wozniak, who apparently then showed the crowd a thumbs down.
“‘[Now it’s], what are the largest lakes in California?’ I’d get all these lakefront properties. And I’d say ‘What are the prime numbers greater than 87?’ And I’d get prime rib.”
But it would seem Mr Wozniak remains hopeful for the future.
“I’m really disappointed, but it’s still a market for the future,” Wozniak said. “I think voice recognition for all the platforms is going to get better and better and better at putting together complete sentences and phrases.”
