Adam Cheyer, an engineer who helped build Siri, has reportedly left Apple, according to Bloomberg.

Cheyer, a Siri co-founder and its former vice president of engineering, left recently after working in Apple's mobile software group, said one of the people, who all asked not to be identified as the matter is confidential.

The departure is at least the second among Siri's founding team since Apple bought the company in April 2010 and follows the departure of Chief Executive Officer Dag Kittlaus last year.


Apple is set to release numerous improvements to Siri with iOS 6. The company is adding support for Spanish, Italian, Korean, Mandarin and Cantonese. Siri will be optimized for use in 15 countries and provide better results for sports scores, movies, and restaurant reservations. You also can ask Siri to update your status on Facebook, post to Twitter or launch an app. Additionally, Siri gets improved hands-free functionality with a new Eyes Free mode, enabling you to interact with your iPhone using nothing more than your voice.

This new website is stupid AF !!!!! I like the older layout that looked like the Mac desktop. Change is not good in your favor iClarified. Understanding everyone wants things to be upgraded but your avid readers are not satisfied at all with this new layout. I dont mind the ads, everyone has bills to pay but the layout its self is not user friendly at all. Use the money your making off all these new ads to pay your website designer to go back to the drawing board or bring back the old layout.

Probably because apple doesn't want to give us Siri's real capabilities until 5 years from now when they can sell us another device and at the same time giving us one new Siri feature .
