iJustine, the self professed Apple fangirl and internet personality, just tweeted out to her almost 1.4 million Twitter followers something almost unthinkable – she prefers Bing voice search on the iPhone to Siri:
Siri, which debuted with the iPhone 4S, is an “intelligent software assistant”. Only available on the 4S, Siri met with great fanfare when it was released, partly due to some of the “snappy answers” programmed in to the software. Microsoft’s Chief Strategy and Research Officer, Craig Mundie, later told Forbes Magazine that “Microsoft has had a similar capability in Windows Phones for more than a year” (in the video at about 2:20) , which was met with some derision.
Here’s the Mundie interview from Forbes:
It looks like iJustine, at least, has been smoking some of what Mundie was smoking!
