The Cubs and the new iPhone 4s
(Please click on the thumbnail above.)
You guys have seen this commercial, right?
Shows people walking around asking their iPhone 4s questions like, "What's my day like?" and it answers both verbally and with a page of information.
I immediately took advantage of this commercial with my old, normal iPhone.
You can, too.
Even if you don't have the new iPhone, go into any public place and talk to your phone.
Trust me, you're cool.
In a crowded elevator, pull out your phone and just say, "What time is my meeting?"
Or even better, be specific yet vague with, "What time is my meeting with the President?"
Couple weeks ago, my wife says, "Our phone contract is up, wanna get a new iPhone?"
Seriously, it's amazing.
Right now, I'm in New York.
The hotel I'm at charges $9 for a bottle of water, I don't even want to find out how much breakfast is.
So I got out my new iPhone and asked Siri, "Is there a McDonald's near me?"
Siri says, "I found 17 restaurants matching McDonald's. 14 of them are fairly close to you."
Like, a block away.
I swear, it's the coolest thing.
Then I'm back in my room and this idea (of the gif) pops into my head.
I pull out my phone and ask Siri: "Will the Cubs ever win the World Series?"
She (it's a woman's voice) responds, "Timothy, I don't understand "When will the Cubs win the World Series."
Which is correct, of course.
I don't understand it either.
neat. 41 years old and damn close to 3000 hits.
also, rain delays suck.
take that giants
TEX takes the opening game from TOR (@TOR) 5-3.
Ride the Kid Magic! Schwarber hadn't homered in a long time before last night.
Greg Maddux was 8-18 in his rookie season. Kyle has the 8 wins down pat.
Think Baby Maddux.
Prof. Harold Hill's THINK system at work.
Kyle is on the far left.
Just tweeted via Jesse Rogers: Hendricks starting Game 2. Wow. Just wow.
That was good!
1. I hate the fact that after 162 games, a team could be out after 1 game. However, I think the system is pretty close to perfect right now. 2 of 3 isn't feasible unless they shorten the regular season, and it ices the division winners for way too long. This creates excitement, and rewards the division winners.
Call me lost.
