Back in the 1970s you had a lot of people in the U.S. who fought in WWII or were Jewish or Polish or Italian or who otherwise would refuse to buy Japanese or German cars. They would buy American cars no matter how bad they were.

So American cars got really bad.

One of the most popular topics on HN is handwringing about what Mac laptop they want to buy. This model is underpowered, this one is expensive, that one has too few ports, etc. They might be happier if they bought a Dell, but they think of that like they think of putting a hand in their toilet.

So long as people buy Apple products on the basis of how they make them feel about themselves, they have no reason to make improvements in Siri.

The best thing you can do to make Siri better is vote with your feet.
