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.
Cuzzi has long been known as having the biggest strike zone among all umpires.
AZ Phil, give me a scouting report on Chris Pieters since he has become a 1B/OF.
But, whatever. Umps are going to miss calls. Let's beat up on the non-Lackey starters.
Watched a little of Mets-Dodgers.
Jason deGrom -- oh, my.
Cubs 3-4-5 hitters are 0-21 so far in the post-season.
Let's change that in a big effin' way tomorrow, boys.
Rizzo and Bryant need to have good at bats. They are really looking outclassed in these two games.
that game sounds fun as hell.
TBS' K Zone seems to be more harsh than the others.
I wonder if MLB will ask the networks to stop using them. They just make the umps, and the game, look bad, and it only pisses off the fans.
"Strop vs. Cardinals." Seen the movie. Hated it.
Not all that disappointed -- I didn't think they would beat Lackey in Game 1. Need to get the bats going against the guys with less experience -- and they hit Wacha pretty good.
Rizzo has been slumping the last couple weeks of the season. Very disappointed it has continued during his penultimate moment of his career to date.
