Siri is jealous of voice from the movie ‘Her’


It seems that Siri may not be a big fan of Her, a new movie made by Spike Jonze, which stars Joaquin Phoenix playing as a man who falls in love with artificial intelligence voiced by Scarlett Johansson.

While the movie, which is getting a wide release on January 10, has been receiving quite a lot of positive reviews — it is sitting at 91% on Rotten Tomatoes — it seems that the real life version Siri, isn’t as found of the movie as everyone else, especially Samantha (the artificial intelligence Phoenix falls in love with).

It was first noticed by Buzzfeed that when you ask Siri, “Siri, are you her,” she responds with “No. You know that it’s just a movie, right?” and “No, in my opinion, she gives artificial intelligence a bad name.”

At least we now know Google isn’t the only one with a sense of humor.

    Siri always has had a sense of humor and personality. Apple realized up-front that people like tech. with an aura around it, something that Microsoft has been battling with (the Zune and Surface got it right, but suffer as very late comers)–Microsoft Windows’ “help assistants” (remember them?) were an interesting approach, but many people didn’t like feeling foolish with a little doggy on the screen (as opposed to a mysterious Siri).
