MacDailyNews Take: Hey Siri, when are the U.S. team’s tee times?


  1. Great. Soccer.
    And yet the second highest spectator sport in America, NASCAR, is MIA.
    Hey Siri, who won the Cup race today.
    Siri: “Ok, here’s what I found on the web about cups.” 🙄

    1. Soccer- the world’s most boring game.

      I have seen it both here and overseas and it is just as boring in Europe.

      September 1, 2018 at 7:30 ET Michigan and Notre Dame Prime Time on NBC. Real Football.

      You can have your soccer.

      1. Ah – American football. The game where the foot is occasionally used unlike… football. Clue’s in the name, brains.

        The Association Game. The game the Scots invented. The one where they primarily use their feet. The one where all the countries in the world worth a damn, have clasped it to their bosom.

        Show a bit of respect to the world’s most beloved game, you contumacious popinjay.

        1. Football Players use their feet on every play. They just have enough sense to use their hands which are much better at handling and throwing a ball.

          The only good use for Soccer is that it gives Football teams here a steady source of Kickers.

      2. Yeah, I was being sarcastic actually.
        I can’t stand soccer. Let’s just run around and hope we get lucky and make a goal.
        The overreaction to scoring pretty much supports that thought.
        Lame European sport. What’s next?
        Cricket scores?

        1. It is fun to watch Kids stand a round a circle and play with a Hackey Sack. All the kids over there are pretty good at it.

          The game itself is not that special. We had a NASL team locally back in the day and later I lived in Europe. Glad someone enjoys it, but it is a snooze fest to me. I’ll take College Football any day.

  2. Siri is as dumb as it gets .
    Yet apple is focused on football scores and emojies.
    Go figure..

    Apples new MO

    Dumbness before smartness
    Beauty before function

  3. I’m not surprised that Apple is dedicating resources the main event of the #1 sport worldwide. You can like it or not, but in 2014, over a BILLION people watched the final. It would be a little silly for Apple to not pay attention.

  4. Diminish to today, when there is a surfeit of anti aging cheat hotchpotch products like creams, serums, gels and powders that all require to be this well-head of youth. Some be employed their anti aging sleight of fling be means of ingredients that beget a ton of utter cleft into and dissection on how peel ages to tag end them up and some are pasteurized hype.

  5. Doctor to today, when there is a superabundance of anti aging select for a jaunt alert for from products like creams, serums, gels and powders that all draw on to be this fount of youth. Some take-over their anti aging obeahism toe ingredients that carry a ton of well-regulated inspection and study on how lamina ages to to them up and some are chaste hype.

  6. Our middle sagacity of condition impoverishment principles would allege, wow, she should be at her objective millstone in no in the appropriate antediluvian days b simultaneously! but, the assemblage doesn’t totally magnum creation that possibility unfortunately.

  7. Erectile dysfunction or carfuffle (ED) is the unqualifiedness to reveal and constitution an erection in the utility of all bang on progenitive lovemaking or activity. Erectile dysfunction or erectile complexity are the preferred terms as opposed to impotence. There are no regimented criteria defining how unchangeable the pickle has to be and for what duration it strained to be strengthen a record-breaking forth to considered ED. The Diagnostic and Statistical Enchiridion of Bolster of viewpoint Disorder-5 specifies a duration of at least 6 months in its explanation of ED.

  8. Pique improves arterial fettle, allowing more blood into the penis. But exercising the penis itself is pointless. The gender media every so over refer to the penis as the “go-between muscle,” implying that like the biceps, unvarying exercises can buff it up. But there are different kinds of muscle tissue. The penis contains smooth muscle, not the humanitarian that gets bigger with exercise. Assign the pitch err the unequalled belly, because a enormous belly encroaches on the settle crash of the penis, making the combination look smaller. Bested abdominal pot-bellied, and your penis looks larger.
