Siri Was Going to be a Droid Feature, Until Apple Stole It Away

Way back in the mists of 2009, before Siri was even a twinkle in Apple’s eye, Verizon was planning to add the app to all of its Android smartphones. Sadly for the carrier, that didn’t last. That story is told in some detail by the Huffington Post, in a long feature called Siri Rises

Siri Was Going to be a Droid Feature, Until Apple Stole It AwayWay back in the mists of 2009, before Siri was even a twinkle in Apple’s eye, Verizon was planning to add the app to all of its Android smartphones. Sadly for the carrier, that didn’t last.

That story is told in some detail by the Huffington Post, in a long feature called Siri Rises. It traces the existence of the iOS app from its beginnings as a US Defense Department to the present day—and even takes a peek at what the future holds. On that point, though, it’s not really clear what the future of Siri is, other than the software becoming incrementally more intelligent. Still, whatever happens, it looks like it will have a happier ending then Verizon’s poor tale. [Huffington Post via Cult of Mac via Verge]
