Is it just me or has Siri gotten slightly smarter. I’m not saying she was ever dumb…ok, how about I stop and just say that Siri is getting better at listening.–that seems more politically correct. Apple’s friendly assistant is indeed getting smarter thanks to its slowly weaning itself off of its reliance on Google. Siri is slightly more responsive and now does a better job of more accurately recognizing your voice, this according to Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster. According to Munster’s latest report on Siri, she can now better interpret and hear what you are asking thanks to iOS7 and the new iPhone, which increases the number of microphones that eliminate ambient noise. According to Munster’s findings, only 4% of Siri’s answers now come from Google, versus 27% from back in December 2012.
