    Hey Siri, are you there?

    For years I thought Apple was forging its own path in the smart home, that there was a purpose behind its slow-boil approach to working with smart-home partners and integrating Siri voice control features -- that at some point the company's strategy would make sense. Sure, to some extent it does make sense. If you're an Apple loyalist, the pathway is clear: You probably already have Apple Music, you're likely going to buy a HomePod smart speaker and you'll look for lights, locks, thermostats and other smart home gadgets that work with Apple HomeKit. You'll overlook Apple's other limitati
  2. Apple wants Siri to become more useful to users when not connected to the internet, including the possibility of an offline mode that does not rely on a backend server to assist with voice recognition or performing the required task, one that would be entirely performed on the user's device. The way Siri typically works is that it listens to the user command when prompted, sends anonymized received speech data to Apple's servers, first converting from audio to plain text, then interpreting the command and sending the result back to the user's iPhone or iPad. The proces
  3. The lawsuit alleges "unlawful and intentional recording of individuals." What you need to know Apple is being sued over the Siri recording fiasco that broke last month. The plaintiff filed the lawsuit in Northern California. It seeks an unspecified amount in damages and for Apple to delete the Siri recordings. Apple is being hit with its first class action lawsuit as a result of the Siri recordings that were passed on to contractors to listen to. First spotted by Kid Lewsing, the lawsuit was
  4. Apple apologizes for Siri audio recordings, announces privacy changes going forward Apple will no longer keep Siri recordings by default Photo by Amelia Holowaty Krales / The Verge Apple has issued a formal apology for its privacy practices of secretly having human contractors listen to recordings of customers talking to its Siri digital assistant to improve the service. “We realize we haven’t been fully living up to our high ideals, and for that we apologize,” Apple’s statement reads. The company also announced several changes t
  5. Spotify's antitrust complaint against Apple lurks in the background. Image: Apple CEO Tim Cook and Spotify CEO Daniel Ek You wouldn't think that Apple and Spotify's relationship would be thawing out anytime soon, given that Spotify has lodged an antitrust complaint against its streaming rival in the EU. However, the two companies are reportedly discussing a plan to let iPhone users play Spotify songs, playlists and albums using Siri voice commands, according to The Information. When it unveiled iOS 13, A
  6. A 13-year-old boy was arrested and charged with intimidation in Indiana last week after he told Siri he was “going to shoot up a school.” The Valparaiso Police revealed in a Facebook post on Friday that they were currently “investigating a general threat to school safety made today by a 13-year-old male while he was visiting family” in the area. The teen, only identified as a Chesterton Middle School student from Indiana, reportedly stated to Siri “I’m going to shoot up a school” and in response, the Apple virtual assistant identified several schools in Valparaiso near
  7. Microsoft Fully Embraces Siri Shortcuts on iOS with OneDrive Update Microsoft has released a new update for the iOS version of its OneDrive client, and this time the changelog includes several welcome improvements. First and foremost, it’s worth knowing that this update brings OneDrive to version 10.60 on both iPhone and iPad, and it includes support for Siri Shortcuts. In other words, you can now ask Siri to perform a series of tasks in OneDrive, which obviously comes in handy when you want to access the app without even touching the iPhone. For example, the
  8. If you've fallen and you can't get up, your smart assistant is probably not the best way to ask for help. A new study from the University of Alberta, published Tuesday in the medical journal The BMJ, tested smart assistants Siri, Cortana, Alexa, and Google Assistant on their ability to respond helpfully to first aid questions. While Google Assistant and Amazon's Alexa way outperformed Apple's Siri and Microsoft's Cortana, the results as a whole were underwhelming. The researchers asked all of the smart assistants 123 questions on 39 first aid topics such as
  9. Researchers hack Siri, Alexa, and Google Home by shining lasers at them MEMS mics respond to light as if it were sound. No one knows precisely why. Enlarge Sugawara et al. 32 with 31 posters participating, including story author Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant are vulnerable to attacks that use lasers to inject inaudible—and sometimes invisible—commands into the devices and surreptitiously cause them to unlock doors, visit websites,
  10. Apple’s Safari, one of the internet’s most popular web browsers, has been surfacing debunked conspiracies, shock videos, and false information via its “Siri Suggested Websites” feature. Such results raise questions about the company’s ability to monitor for low-quality information, and provide another example of the problems platforms run into when relying on algorithms to police the internet. As of yesterday, if you typed “Pizzagate” into Apple’s Safari, the browser’s “Siri Suggested Website” prominently offered users a link to a YouTube video with the title “PIZZAGATE, BIGGEST SC
