  1. The true voice of Siri has remained a mystery for years but a recent in-depth article dissecting machine language and how Siri “found its voice” prompted the actress behind Apple’s iconic personal assistant to finally come forward. Her name is...

    What difference does it make? Hasn't she already been paid?

    Yeah it's not like millions of people are dying in Syria or the US govt is acting like tantrum trowing teenagers that cannot even get a budget done.

    No by all means lets focus on whats really important *sigh*
     
  5. I'd rather watch a fluff piece than their biased views on the real news.
     
  6. From the numerous reports I've read, it doesn't seem like this lady is asking for anything from Apple. She presumably was paid for the recordings she made years ago, and the intellectual property was purchased by Apple at some point.

    I just think it's fascinating to think about what her experience must be like, to hear her own voice in so many places.

    It is fascinating but nothing anyone says will please everyone - even news of free money would upset someone out there. It's a good break from all the bad news we see all day long on news networks.

    Siri on my wifes iPhone is a male voice. It drives me round the bend.

    I couldn't care less about who voiced Siri, and if I could, I'd probably throw myself off of a bridge.

    I really don't get why many of you people are getting your panties in such a wad over this.

    "Yeah it's not like millions of people are dying in Syria or the US govt is acting like tantrum trowing teenagers that cannot even get a budget done.

    And I'm sure they have a journalist working on that. Not every single journalist at a web page or news source works on the same things. Seriously people, stop whining about a simple little article. There are some people (like myself who is interested in voice over artists) who like to know the voices behind the things we hear every day. It's not gonna kill you to have an article released over it.

    cnn is known for repeating their news broadcasts too numerous of times which is why I quit watching it. They'll probably begin re examining this siri article dozens of times.

    Thank you! ...really couldn't understand how this is news. Fun fact maybe but to hire a forensic expert... over kill.

    Slow news day. Has Apple run out of ideas?

    In hindsight (that is if they didn't) Apple should have recorded Steve's voice for the heard. lol
