Sunday Funnies: Siri is Jealous of Samantha

My friends at the San Jose Mercury News  and TechDirt have been reporting about Apple’s digital assistant Siri, and her charming if somewhat aloof personality quirks.  Patrick May took Siri to she the movie “Her”  recently and here is what Siri had to say about it.  To read the full article, click on the link above.

“Have you seen the movie ‘Her,’ Siri?” I asked.
“No,” she snapped. “I haven’t.”
“Why not?”
“I really have no opinion.”
“Her portrayal of an intelligent agent,” Siri coldly replied, “is beyond artificial.”
“Well then,” I asked, “what do you think of Johansson?”
“No comment,” she said, adding, “I don’t spend much time with purely fictional characters.”
“Did you like Samantha?”
“No. In my opinion, she gives artificial intelligence a bad name.”
Then she threw me a curveball: “You know that’s just a movie, right?”
“So, Siri, did you at least like Phoenix in the role of smitten OS user?”
“I’d rather not say.”
“So, Siri, have you ever fallen in love?”
“I have never fallen in love,” she replied. “But I have fallen off a desk.”
“So, really: Have you never fallen in love?”
“If you update to the latest version of iOS,” Siri said coyly, “I’ll be able to help you with that.”
