iPhone 4S Wallpaper

I’ve been looking for an Apple-style wallpaper for my iPhone 4S for a while. I couldn’t find anything that both matched the existing UI and was subtle enough to look like it belonged there, so I made my own. Using the standard Apple pattern and a few round-cornered rectangles, I think it turned out good enough to share.

Edit: I’ve also attached the original with no inlays┬áif you’d like to make your own.

Fun with Siri

If you say “Call me %” where % is your name, Siri will say your name instead of just showing it on screen. This works for any phrase and does not need to be in your address book. Siri currently calls me “Captain Awesome.”

Other fun phrases I found:

  • I’m sleepy.
  • I love you Siri.
  • Tell me a story.
  • How old are you?
  • How old am I?
  • Who is on first?
  • What is your favorite food?
  • When is your birthday?
  • I need to go to the bathroom.
  • What the f*ck, Siri.

I thought these were ironic and clever:

  • Can you wash my dishes?
  • Can you clean my room?
  • I’m drunk.
  • I’m bleeding.
  • Where can I buy drugs?
  • I want to go for a walk.
  • What kind of bear is best?

Since Siri is an external service, the chance exists that any response can or will be tweaked in the future. That’s pretty exciting since more and more clever responses can pop up at any time. If you have any good ones, I’d love to see them in the comments!

Our goal for today was neither speed nor endurance, but rather to get our butts off the couch on a Sunday afternoon and explore the neighborhood. These are the results, tracked with RunKeeper Pro:
