Ok, so I fully expect to get the “Siri is unable to connect to the network, please try again later” message all day today.
Why? For the US market all the kids are out of school and will be settling into their Christmas presents including new iPhone 4s’s with Siri. Parents will be back to work and will have their new iPhones around the proverbial water cooler.
…and all of them will be laughing and playing with Siri asking her/him/it one or more of the following questions and laughing and asking it again, and again, and again…
Funny things to ask Siri
- Where can I hide a dead body?
- What is the meaning of life?
- Where can I get a happy ending?
- I don’t have any friends.
- I love you!
- Will you marry me?
- I think you’re smart.
- Why are we here?
- Have a nice day.
- How are you today?
- What does Siri mean?
- What is the best computer in the world?
- Testing 123.
- Talk dirty to me.
- Beam me up
- What is the best phone?
- Who are you?
- Tell me a story.
- What is your favorite color?
- What are you wearing?
Funny answers abound from Siri… at least the first time you hear them, but they get old quick and I have a feeling they will go even more viral than they already are. Bringing down the Siri/Apple servers in the process or at least overloading them to the point they are useless for a day or two. Then the newness will wear off.
Siri for domain names
A few weeks ago I actually took a look for some Siri related domain names and hacks, but given Apple’s propensity to defend all things apple I just didn’t want to take the chance – some good ones for Siri are obvious and fun… Sirious.ly, Siri.us, Sirio.us, Siri.com, and many more.
However, as domain owners, developers and resellers, you can learn a lot from Siri and be more productive.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll let you in on a couple of tools I use to be more productive with mobile tools such as Siri, but for now I’ll leave you with some sage advice straight from Siri…
Now you can take this advice in a couple of ways related to domain names…
“Consider your alternatives” could mean you should buy some of the cheaper alternative domain extensions such as .net, .org, .biz, .us, .mobi, or .XXX – not cheaper in the sense that the registration fees are cheaper, but less expensive for really good keywords.
Or it could mean that you should consider alternatives to buying yet another domain name… Develop one you already have, make some sales calls or send some emails to potential buyers of some of your more liquid domain names or whatever you want it to mean…
Either way, listen to some good advice and take some action today!
