Foolish Chatter

geekery, and so forth w/ @alansmodic


    via Copilot — A Smart Budgeting App for iPhone — Tools and Toys:

    Tools & Toys with a great rundown of this (new to me) finance app. Perfect time for a Mint replacement that doesn’t hammer you with advertising.

  • Siri – not so smart

    via Daring Fireball: ‘What Time Is It in London?’:

    So every other service that tries to answer “What time is it in London?” gets it right. Only Siri gets it wrong.

    Reminds me of a post I made roundabouts last year’s NHL trade deadline (lost in various site migrations, such is life). I asked Siri when the NHL trade deadline was and it showed me the current standings. Google, on the other hand, provided the correct date AND time. And provided me news stories about who the Penguins were targeting. Worlds better.

    In regards to the London time test noted above, that Bing clock is a slick design feature.

    Do better, Apple.
