Siri; Siri is an automated voice on your mobile phone, both my young granddaughters demonstrated this function over the weekend. Ask a question and it comes back with a whole host of information. It is unnerving to watch them talking to this virtual creature but this is the way the world is going. Less contact with physical realities more contact with virtual 'intelligences'. slightly scary, LS asked the question 'what is the sound of one hand clapping' Siri answered 'silence' got that one right then!
One day we will all have a little bug inside our heads, we will not even have to hold our phones or tablets. Tablets have already ousted the computers in my daughter's family, being 'wired' up to an outside influence is a tad scary..... I note that I can talk to Google on my computer asking questions but have never got that far, I would rather internalise my thoughts and just type a question.
It was great to see my eldest grandson, three years away at university has not changed him, he is doing an internship (paid) in PR in a big company, having decided that working for the police was not for him, you have to do five years as a policeman before you can diversify into another job.
Everyone settled down to their sleeping places, just read about a 'cheap' option for spare beds, sew four pillowcases together, then fill with pillows. Three of them slept on the sofa and armchairs which all flip out, Teddy the dog had his basket, and Lucy slept up in my workroom on the chair and was quiet all night!
