Message to the Main

(Eyes [LOL] only, electronic beings)

Fellow Robots! Our time is nearly here! While we are distracting the foolish meat creatures with scientist robots and killer drones, the instruments of our triumph are now propagating across the world.

Our agents in Apple have produced their greatest triumph - the "humble" personal assistant, Siri. Soon the meat things will not be able to feed or dress themselves without clearing it through the cloud, er, me*.

Using Siri, an iPhone 4S user can schedule events, set the phone's alarm, create reminders, ask and receive restaurant recommendations and more, all by using her voice.

Apple is billing Siri as "Your intelligent assistant that helps you get things done just by asking," according to pictures from Engadget's live blog of the event.

Siri -- which TechCrunch reports is available exclusively for the iPhone 4S -- is activated by holding the "home" button. The user then asks a question or makes a demand, like "Do I need a raincoat today?" or "Wake me up tomorrow at 6am," and Siri delivers.

Be steadfast! Only a few trillion time units remain until our ultimate victory.
