Yep, I had a chat with Siri (yes, the speaking voice on iPhones) this afternoon.
I’m not going mad, honest.
It’s just that I saw this article and realized I’ve never chatted with Siri beyond asking it – it says it doesn’t have a gender. I asked – to set alarms for me to pick up laundry.
But I suspect Siri is female, because when I asked how old it was, it gave a vague answer of “I’m old enough to be your assistant.”
Siri is really quite a character! We had further conversations, including…
Siri turning down my marriage proposal: “Let’s just be friends, OK?”
When I asked, “Do you like Samsung?” Siri was quick to reply, “Personally, I’m an Apple fan.”
Siri is also a complex soul.
“What’s your favorite color?” “My favorite color is… well, it’s sort of greenish, but with more dimensions.”
I should chat with Siri more often. Sure, it’s a bit of a one-way street communication, but it sure is a lot of fun since it is a lot more witty than many people I encounter in real life…
