A Siri With a Fringe on the Top

By -

Most of you know that Siri is Apple’s voice-recognition system. Those of you who use it regularly probably also know that it sucks whale. I have frequent need to send lengthy text messages, and Siri invariably mangles the words. Indeed, something tells me that an evil engineer is at work, because it will particularly screw up pronouns, including those that sound nothing alike. For example, “he” becomes “you”, which, as you guess, completely and utterly changes the content of just about any sentence imaginable.

For example, if I text my wife regarding one of our children, “He should really stop screwing around and do the work required”, and Siri changes “He” to “You” (which it has done dozens of times), then Siri has not only ruined my message but has also gotten me in serious trouble with the spouse. So I’m sick of it.

Coming Off The Lows

A decent rally yesterday that took SPX back into a retest of the 50 hour MA as resistance. That’s currently at 2349/50 and supported by the daily middle band at 2352 and the 50dma at 2354. The current SPX low is at a possible triangle support trendline and if that resistance zone can be broken then declining resistance from the high and possible triangle resistance is currently in the 2372-4 area.
