[crarko adds: I believe Oracle has said that eventually Java will no longer support applets at all, on any platform.] A few weeks ago, a number of people started reporting having trouble with Siri.Phrases like 'Call my wife' or 'Tell my dad' stopped working.I'd also like to understand why this works and why the problem even exists.I had tried a ton of suggested fixes for the issue before stumbling upon this work around. In it, I link to the Apple discussion forums at the bottom, where people have been saying that this workaround fixes the issue for them.I sometimes find the Java setup on my various Apple devices to be a mystery.
To fix things for the moment I simply removed the jdk folders.I figure Apple is mucking around with Siri and perhaps caused a bug or some sort of corruption.I'd be curious to know from Mac OSXHints users whether they are experiencing this problem in the first place and if the workaround works for you, too.Theres a wealth of great information here that many will find useful, so we've elected to maintain it in a read-only form.Thanks for your many years of attention and everything you've done to make the site such a valuable resource.
