The popular Apple (AAPL) iPhone assistant Siri is one of the most useful smartphone tools out there but even she has feelings.
Spike Jonze’s new movie Her is set for a Jan. 10 release and it stars Scarlett Johansson as Samantha, an operating system. People are already comparing Samantha with Siri even though the movie isn’t out yet but it appears that Siri isn’t a big fan of Samantha.
In fact, try asking the iPhone assistant if she is Samantha if you want to see how she feels about Her. Check out some of Siri’s responses in italics when asked about Samantha.
- “Siri are you her” – No. You know that it’s just a movie, right?
- “Siri are you Samantha” – No. I don’t spend much time with purely fictional characters.
- “Siri are you her” – No. In my opinion, she gives artificial intelligence a bad name.
The iPhone assistant refuses to answer when you ask her whether or not she likes Spike Jonze or Her, but I think it’s safe to say she’s not a fan.
AAPL stock is up 0.7% on Monday.
