"I’m fond of saying that the two iron laws of modernity are 1) things are getting better, and 2) people think they’re getting worse. One more piece of evidence that these laws hold: this article complaining about Siri. Siri is a voice-activated program that comes with new iPhones. Users can ask their phone where, say, the nearest Thai restaurant is. Just say it out loud. No typing. In seconds, Siri gives out a dozen options, with maps, directions, and even menus." (12/06/11)
