Considering Siri's response to certain questions the ifixit response does not seem that far fetched:

If this continues, can you go to an ATT store to activate it?

Heh, so it's just the same as the standalone Siri app then. You can still ask it wolfram alpha stuff I guess.

French Siri has a nice voice.

What's the most similar app to Siri that teaches languages, anyone know?

Same thing happened to me, but I found that Siri had been disabled by default for some reason. If you go into Settings->General->Siri, you can enable it there.

Yay! Posting from my new 64GB black 4S! My first iPhone, and so far it is unbelievably better than my old Droid. Even data performance seems to be much faster.

One odd thing I've noticed is that the UK Siri does a much better job of understanding me even though I'm from the US! Too bad I can't use the UK Siri for directions.

Gary, I'm loving the look of the white model.

I was thinking of maybe trading it in for the black version, but now that I have it in my hand, I dig it.

Funny thing is that most of those employees probably didn't even know who he is until someone told them and then explained who he was.

Last time this came up (news stories about him camping in front of an Apple Store for an iDevice... iPad in that case, I think) it was revealed that he gets a complimentary "thank you for co-founding the company" device from the board whenever he wants one, but he prefers to actually go down and buy them for his family. He does accept a complimentary device for himself, though.

Telus just emailed me to say they shipped my 4S yesterday and gave me a Purolator tracking number. Latest on Purolator's website says the package left Toronto at 7pm last night, so I assume I should get it today!

I hate surprises, but this was very welcome. I'd have been relieved just to know I was getting the phone on a specific date, even if they'd missed release day.

This CNN article seems to indicate otherwise.

Wozniak acknowledged that he could have easily made one phone call to Apple and gotten the phone he's waiting in line for, but he didn't. He has yet to play with an iPhone 4S or its Siri voice-controlled assistant. He has said previously that he does not ask colleagues about products in development because he does not want to ruin the surprise for himself.

I also have trouble asking Siri to tell conversions. I always get the response that it doesn't understand what I mean.

Sorry, but I'm going to have to agree with Siri on this one. What does 'tell conversations' mean?

Years ago I saw something indicating he remained on the payroll just to keep the healthcare plan. Not sure if it's still true.

No estimated arrival yet. The monday arrival from before is gone.

Arrival got changed to monday for me last night like it seems to have for several people in Canada. Checked this morning and it's back to today! It's evidently on the truck and out for delivery!

I'm on Verizon, so it shouldn't matter, but what's a good site/app to do speed tests from mobile phones?

he wrote conversions, not conversations. i'm assuming he means asking siri to convert 10 pounds into kilograms (or something similar).

Planning on it. My girlfriend will still have a 3s.. We'll be out and about this evening and I'll do some tests with both phones in various places and report back. (Seattle area)
