Siri is talking trash about Google Glass, gets digitally weepy about your relationship with her

The Verge Siri comes to terms with her place in this world

Siri, known for snarky answers and useful tips on where to dump dead bodies, seems to have an identity issue. More to the point, she’d like you to stop confusing her with that other piece of hardware.

When prompted with “Okay, Glass”, Siri drops the gloves and gets scrappy. With quips like “Stop trying to strap me to your forehead” and “I think the Glass is half empty”, Siri comes off just a touch sensitive about your relationship with her.

According to Dan Seifert of The Verge, this is seen in iOS 6, but Siri’s displeasure with your Glass related talk may be worse in iOS 7. I thought Siri had tougher skin than this, but I guess she’s really sensitive to potentially having to share the spotlight. She seemed okay with Google Now, so I wonder what her deal is with Glass.

I’d ask her, but, you know — that old chestnut.

    Apple’s engineers can do something right and funny I guess :D

      LoL this might be a sign that the world is ending :D

        Or this may be the thing I was talking about earlier. Apple is Anakin Skywalker, when it was young, it was the best and everything it did was magical and done as the prophecy told, then it became corrupted and evil (Darth Vader). Now that Apple is dying (?) there will be a short time when it’s good again. But does this mean that Android is Luke :O

          IMO Steve Jobs built Apple and designs like the Imperialist in Star Wars. Look at his Mega Yacht lol, Imperial Star Destroyer lol.

            They already started screwing with Jobs vision. Take a look at Steve’s last project about the new headquarters in Cupertino and what they are changing. Pffftt…

          Perhaps so….maybe Samsung is Senator Palpatine.

            “The time has come. Execute Order 66.” I’m afraid of what my phone will do! Maybe there will be an OTA that will install, ugh, Tizen o.O

            Buying a iPhone? IT’S A TRAP! :D

          but.. but he actually fulfill the prophecy, he is the one that kill the emperor and bring the balance back.

          • MasterMuffin

            Yea but everyone believed that Apple was the one that the prophecy was talking about

          Steve Jobs announced a thermonuclear war against Google and Android back in the day. So, are Google and Android the rebels? If so, then, may the force be with them.

          • MasterMuffin

            Of course Google and Android are the good guys!

  • RarestName

    I wish that they would make the service better instead.

  • ConCal

    Not exactly “Thermonuclear” but funny, I guess.

  • Valtheus

    Apple should use their resources to make a decent looking mobile OS (and not my little pony), instead of making fun of Google glass. It’s obvious that they are one step behind (or more) than Android and apparently it hurts. Is it the Mac and PC guy all over again?

  • Ha lala

    google now is more practical. I Like Siri as well. in the future Apple might put emotion in her voice. That’d be great.
