Apple’s Siri Doesn’t Think Too Highly of Spike Jonze’s ‘Her’
Spike Jonze’s ‘Her‘ has drawn plenty of accolades for being one of the best movies of the year and for the voiceover performance of Scarlett Johansson, the voice behind the operating system that Joaquin Phoenix’s character falls in love with. But there’s one person who doesn’t think too highly of ‘Her’ – Siri.
As reported by Buzzfeed, if you ask Siri about ‘Her,’ you’ll get some snarky responses back. For example, if you ask, “Siri, are you Her?,” Apple’s voice-operated system will reply, “No. Her portrayal of an intelligent agent is beyond artificial.” OH SNAP.
Here are some of the other questions/responses:
For what it’s worth, Jonze had been developing the movie before Siri was announced. When asked recently about the introduction of Apple’s Siri on the iPhones, he said, “Siri came out, and we were like, ‘Oh, that sucks, they stole our thunder!’ But ultimately it didn’t matter, because it was inevitable. And our thing is so much different from Siri.”
Apparently, the programmers at Apple aren’t quite convinced and have updated Siri’s answers to get sassy with her movie counterpart. It’s all in good fun…at least we hope so and the Siri/Her war doesn’t result in Skynet becoming self-aware.
