Siri is the latest app offered by Apple Inc. via their newly released iPhone 4s. This has incredibly captivated a lot of gadget flingers and enthusiasts. Being able to send voice commands and communicate with your mobile phone device is one of the best things to happen in smart phone technology. Not only does Siri accept voice commands but also talks back like a normal person would.
This mobile advancement as always will never get past the Pinoy techies and will sooner or later make its mark among iPhone owners and wannabees. Not to remove from the equation none – iPhone users, even I who do not have one and is currently dreaming of owning one of these smart phones says that Siri has indeed caught my attention.
Siri despite of being on beta stage is already making waves in the World Wide Web and one in particular is a Filipino-made parody of Siri as having a Filipino counterpart that has been a viral hit among the Pinoys which is now prevalent on Youtube’s online video stream channels.
Vangie so as termed was created to work similarly (or better) than that of Siri – addressing certain issues like recognizing Pinoy English and understanding Pinoy culture.
For you to appreciate this post, I have here the video link to Ate Vangie: Vangie the Pinoy Virtual Assistant
I was laughing my heart out watching this video and truly I can say that we Filipinos are the best in doing films even as short as this which is a lot more entertaining than the real thing. Kudos to its makers Macapuno systems for their witty creation of Vangie: the Pinoy Virtual Assistant series of videos. (Yeah, there’s a series of videos of Vangie you can get to enjoy watching)
Now, if you have an iPhone 4S, will you have Siri or Vangie on your smart phone to suit your style?
