Drove from Wichita Falls to Fort Worth this morning to pick up some new suits. On the way down I asked Siri the temperature a couple times and she dutifully replied, and of course figured out where I was and looked for the closest temperature to my location. I ask Siri for the temperature pretty often. I always get a reply in the same general format…just the facts.
On the way home, just passed Decatur, TX, about an hour from Wichita Falls, I asked the temperature again.
Me: What is the current temperature in Wichita Falls, Texas?
Siri: The current temperature is about 98 degrees. (slight pause) My data comes from The Weather Channel.
We’ve known for a long time that Apple uses The Weather Channel. We talked here about some new branding not long ago.
Wonder if I could have Siri know my name and forecast?
