Diamond Head

Don’t Always Trust Siri
While in Hawaii over New Year’s, Natalie and I wanted to climb Diamond Head for the sunrise as we have in the past (see: how to have a perfect morning in Waikiki). But since I know things change frequently, I didn’t want to walk all the way there only to have to wait until the park opened. So I asked Siri what time Diamond Head Park opened, and she gave me a time that didn’t seem right (7 am). So I then called my concierge at the Moana Surfrider who confirmed the park opened at 6 am.

I love my iPhone, but the moral of this tip is to not always trust Siri—especially when it comes to opening and closing times.

BTW: Diamond Head was an absolute zoo at sunrise! There had to be over 500 tourists (mostly Japanese) already at the top when we arrived.

    Very recently in Napa, CA the directions I got were very wrong. My word to the wise, have a new map in your car so if you get messed up you can find your way out of a mess.

    Bottom line – don’t trust Siri. Siri is stupid. She has messed up my wife iPhone6s numerous times and once our contract is over she is switching to a Samsung Galaxy5 Note.
