Why Has Siri Gotten So BAD?

My bride sent this article to me at USA Today to me because I have been complaining how absolutely bad Siri has gotten - not staying the same - not getting better - BUT WORSE!

In Jefferson Graham's article he quotes James Niehouse, the director of photography for A Beautiful Planet, the first IMAX film to be shot digitally :

“I’ll get an occasional answer or two that I want, but most of the time it’s things I have to read,” he says. “I don’t want to read a website while I’m driving.”

I agree!  Way too often, I get a website!  I don't want a written answer to a verbal question!

Mr. Graham also quotes Mike Reiss, a writer for The Simpsons.

"Siri doesn’t even know who Marge Simpson is!

"This thing sucks," Reiss said."

I agree.  Apple needs to fix this NOW.  Steve Jobs would have never stood for such incompetence....
