One More Way Siri May be Smarter than Us


We have professed our love to Siri many times, especially when she’s able to find a place nearby to satisfy our burrito craving. And while she claims to be able to fulfill your needs and answer all your questions, things fall apart when you talk to her in Spanglish.

Ok Google is slightly better at understanding your mix of English and Spanish because it has Google. It can search your contacts and search nearby maps for different Spanish words. But it’s not better by much, especially with genuine Spanglish. Like, what would it answer if you asked, “Ok Google, how do I get rid of my barriga?”

The good news is that the more data collected from all your burning Spanglish inquiries, the better voice recognition will get.

Ignacio Lopez Moreno, the developer of some of the software says “at the end of the day, we always work to improve voice recognition for the majority of the users taking into account the diversity of the backgrounds in the U.S. So, it’s not that far-fetched that one day we’ll be able to tackle more complex queries like ‘where can I get unos tacos riquísimos?’”

The day Siri or Ok Google can answer how to get rid of our barriga and later find us some tacos riquísimos (we have problems, we know), that day will be el mejor día!

This Latina Pulled Over a Miami Cop for Speeding

Have you ever fantasized about pulling over a police officer that was speeding?


Well, a Miami woman named Claudia Castillo did just that. After noticing a Miami-Dade police car traveling at high speeds, she began following it.


According to Castillo, the police car was traveling very fast without its siren or lights activated. Castillo says she flashed her lights and honked her car horn to get the attention of the police officer. In one of three videos posted by Castillo to YouTube, she says, “He was hitting about 100 miles an hour because I was hitting 80 and I could not catch up to him.”

Eventually, the police officer pulled over.


Why did she follow him and pull him over? Castillo felt he was setting a bad example by speeding. In the second of the three videos posted by Castillo, she says, “I’m sure he’s a good guy, but nobody is above the law.”

And it all led to this showdown between Castillo and the unidentified officer:


After explaining when she noticed the officer speeding and why she followed him, Castillo: “I just wanted to know, what’s the emergency?”

The unidentified officer said, “I don’t know how fast I was going, but I can tell you this. I’m on the way to work right now. Um, I don’t believe I was speeding, but like I said, you’re entitled to your opinion.” After asking if Castillo had an emergency that needed his attention, he added, “Well, I apologize and I’ll be sure to slow down.”
