I have used Siri about 10 times. 

Hon­est­ly, I bare­ly talk to peo­ple, why would I talk to my phone.

An accurate prediction
Oct 28th, 2013 by Ken Hagler

Five years ago, I wrote this:

Expe­ri­ence sug­gests that if Oba­ma does indeed win the elec­tion, the Obames­siah cult will praise him to the heav­ens for con­tin­u­ing to do exact­ly the same things that Bush has been doing for the past eight years, while the Bushe­viks will con­demn him as the Antichrist for doing exact­ly the same things that Bush has been doing. And of course none of them will ever acknowl­edge that their “beliefs” have reversed overnight, any more than they did when Bush replaced Clin­ton.

Unsur­pris­ing­ly, I was right.

Cause and Effect

Swartz-Designed Whistle­blow­er Tool “Secure­Drop” Launched. An anony­mous read­er writes in with news about a new tool for whistleblowers/ “The ‘strongest-ever’ whistle­blow­ing tool for sources to speak anony­mous­ly with jour­nal­ists, part­ly devel­oped by the late Red­dit co-founder Aaron Swartz, has been launched by the Free­dom of The Press Foun­da­tion. Before his sui­cide in Jan­u­ary 2013, Swartz had been work­ing on a tool for sources to anony­mous­ly sub­mit doc­u­ments to jour­nal­ists online, with­out using trace­able email and in a way that could be eas­i­ly cat­a­logued by news organ­i­sa­tions. Called Secure­Drop, the tool can be installed on any news organisation’s web­site as a ‘Con­tact Us’ form page. But where these pages usu­al­ly require a name and email address, the encrypt­ed Secure­Drop sys­tem is com­plete­ly anony­mous, assign­ing the whistle­blow­er two unique iden­ti­fiers — one seen by the jour­nal­ist, and one seen by the whistle­blow­er. These iden­ti­ties stay the same, so a con­ver­sa­tion can be had with­out names being shared or known.” [Search Slash­dot]

I had no idea that Aaron Swartz had been work­ing on such a tool until this sto­ry came out. It cer­tain­ly explains why the Evil Empire was so deter­mined to hound him to death.
