Listen to Robin Williams imitate Siri.

“Why are you asking a phone?”

“Look, look, and then paint! ”

“Live your life”

No end of Siri jokes it seems. The more a technology tries to be human, when it obviously is not, the more ridiculous it appears. Google never seemed ridiculous. That was amazing. No one was ever bewildered by how Google search got its results, or how it really sorted them. You yourself were responsible for making sense. The more sense you make, the more it can help you. It doesn’t work for a program to be ‘oh just say anything, you don’t have to make sense, I will help you find the answer anyway’. Even a human friend couldn’t help you there.
