Believe it or not, that is a message that my friend got on her iPhone from Siri. (Siri is the intelligent personal assistant and knowledge navigator app for Apple iPhones, iPads, and iPods.) Apparently, she was dictating a text message and Siri cut her off with the above quote. I didn’t even know that the iPhone could do that! I thought it was hilarious.
You see, Ellie is a talker. She is an adorable, lovely woman with the gift of gab. She will explain a story from beginning to end and not leave out any details no matter how small or irrelevant. She is funny and wonderful. Apparently her iPhone thinks that she’s long-winded. And just to prove a point, not only did Siri send her one message, but when the first one had no effect, Siri sent her another one!
“My great-grandfather used to say to his wife, my great-grandmother, who in turn told her daughter, my grandmother, who repeated it to her daughter, my mother, who used to remind her daughter, my own sister, that to talk well and eloquently was a very great art, but that an equally great one was to know the right moment to stop.”
– Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Who comes up with these ideas? Geniuses, that’s who!
