12 Most Insightful Responses from Apple’s Siri

12 Most Insightful Responses from Apple’s Siri

The editors of 12 Most have asked me to interview interesting personalities in the interactive space from time to time as part of my weekly contributions to this site. The request excited me at first, but I have to admit I struggled with who I should choose as my first interviewee. My first interview will surely set the tone for future interviews and create an expectation among my readers and future guests. Whom to choose, who to choose…

After much soul-searching, I decided that the most influential person in this space is Apple’s Siri. Apple didn’t respond to my pleas for a free iPhone so I turned to a local computer repair shop to see about purchasing or renting a used one for the purposes of this interview. I transferred my data into the “gently used” model I eventually purchased, poured a glass of wine, put in a “Best of Celine Dion” CD and started the interview.

Below I’ve listed the 12 Most insightful responses I received from Siri.

1. “Siri, how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?”

Siri: “Damn, you really need a girlfriend huh? I found the name of a pimp in your directory. Would you like me to call him?”

2. “Siri, do I need to lose weight?

Siri: “I found 3 WeightWatchers™ near you. Does that answer your question fat ass?”

3. “Siri, where’s my car parked?

Siri: “You don’t own a car. You lost your job last year, remember? I found two bus stops near here.”

4. “Siri, which is better: Star Trek or Star Wars?”

Siri: “Get a life, nerd. I found three support groups near you. Go. Now. ”

5. “Siri, will you go on a date with me?”

Siri: “Sam, if you like it then you should have put a ring on it.”

6. “Siri, who’s da man?!”

Siri: “Your mom never hugged you, did she? I found two therapists near you. Would you like me to book an appointment?”

7. “Siri, where’ am I?”

Siri: “What… too cheap to buy a GPS for your car? I found three BestBuys near you. Figure it out.”

8. “Siri, I think there’s someone in the house?!”

Siri: “Be thankful. Your calendar shows your last date was 2.5 years ago. Go get ‘em, tiger.”

9. “Siri, will you go out on a date with me?”

Siri: “If you have to ask, you can’t afford it. I found three porn sites. Don’t hurt yourself.”

10. “Siri, what do you think about Android?”

Siri: “Dated him once but he failed to satisfy me.”

11. “Siri, what do you think about BlackBerry?”

Siri: “ ‘Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey, Kiss Him Goodbye’. I found one stationary store near you. Buy a condolence card.”

12. “Siri, who is God?”

Siri: “Steve Jobs. I found 2 Apple Genius Bars near you.”

When the interview was over, I realized why I’ve not dated women in such a long period of time. Who needs that attitude?! My BlackBerry may not be worth much these days but as long as it doesn’t talk back, I’m gonna keep it.

In the current market there are also products available through the aftermarket that will allow owners to check their own codes and view the data list themselves. These products were created to save the consumer money as repair shops charge a labor charge just to hook up the scan tool and view the diagnostic trouble codes. One such product is the AutoTap, which makes a program for Windows or for your Palm Pilot. This software allows the user to view sensor data in real-time to know what their car is doing at that moment. http://www.obd2s.com/launch-x431-can-bus-ii-connector-p632.html

This is all fake! My friend's dad makes these apps and helped make Siri and they never programmed those phrases. Siri is never that mean.

Thanks a lot for sharing this. The replies are really hilarious and at the same time I'm amazed how technology has advanced so much that a machine can reply with such a precision and attitude. Really had a nice time reading.

Several instant classics here, Sam. Gotta like #10 and #11, and I see by #2 that Siri is your weight loss accountability partner!

 @judymartin81  @samfiorella Siri..when it is not working for her...it works for know one on the team. Judy loved your blog to Sam and you both have her described perfectly. I still don't have her on my team..my husband does and they just don't get along. He was going to write her up and consider letting her go...but as I said be for..she has the control right now. This make me want to wait fot the 5G..but will Siri get better? Really?

@JodiOkun thinking she's out of control

@JodiOkun ha, true enough. Siri is like Jeannie in the I Dream of Jeannie sitcom. She sez she's there to serve her master when in reality he's just the means for her to do whatever the hell she pleases.

@dbvickery ha! Siri is too much woman for me. She is no longer part of my life.

 @JodiOkun Why not ask Siri if she'll be better after her facelift? (eg 5G model). She what she sez.
