Numbers are not time

Sometimes Apple makes things too helpful.

Every day I log Mom's AM blood sugar reading into one of my calendars. But iOS tries to make the number the time of the entry.

I want it in a straight list with no time assigned. It takes extra effort to make it work.

Mom shares that calendar with me, so it shows up on her iPhone as well.

Apple Siri

I like the way the some of the other voices sound, but speaking and listening are tied together. If I set my iPod Touch to one of the Australian English voices, Siri expects to hear Australian English as well. I think it would be worth Apple’s time to split the speaking behavior and the listening behavior.

ETA: Originally on a seperate gripes page, moved to the Gripes category.
