The Apple (AAPL) iPhone assistant Siri did not respond kindly when asked if she was Samantha, the OS from the movie Her.
Spike Jonze’s Her stars Joaquin Phoenix alongside Scarlett Johansson who plays Samantha, an OS that Phoenix’s character falls in love with. Up until recently, Siri sounded like a jealous girlfriend if you asked her if she was the artificial co-star of Spike Jonze’s movie.
However, it appears that everyone’s favorite smartphone assistant has changed her attitude about Her. Whenever Siri gets asked if she is ‘Samantha’ or ‘her,’ she now responds with a little less sass and a little more humor.
Here are the five best Siri responses when asked if she is Samantha.
- Joaquin? Is that you?
- No. But I’m flattered that you think so.
- No. But some of my best friends are fictional.
- No. She is a fictional construct, whereas I am a virtual entity. But we can still be friends.
- I’m afraid not. But she could better know you better than I do.
AAPL stock is down 0.8% in early afternoon trading Friday.
