Apple's Siri does not like Google Glass

Apple's Siri does not like Google Glass
Siri has always been pretty sassy, and has had a solid amount of snark when it came to the competition. That said, Siri seems to have a few things to say on the subject of Google Glas, and as you might expect, Siri is not a fan of Google's new beta device. Google's Eric Schmidt has claimed that Google and Apple have an "adult" relationship, but that doesn't mean the two can't take jabs at each other.

It has been found recently that if you say "Okay Glass" to Siri, it will have some less than glowing things to say on the topic. Apparently, there are four different responses that will cycle through when you use the Google Glass keyphrase. The responses range from the direct insult, "I think that Glass is half empty" to flippant, "Glass? I think you've got the wrong assistant" to amusing, "Stop trying to strap me to your forehead, it won't work" and even the slightly insecure, "I'm not Glass. And I'm just fine with that."

Some of the responses do exist right now in iOS 6, but there are extras in the iOS 7 beta, so it could easily be that this is just the tip of the iceberg on Glass insults from Siri.

"Relevant"? This word, I do not think it means what you think it means. The company with the bestselling tablet, laptop, smartphone, mp3 player, and the biggest stacks of cash does not need a journalist, a fanboy, a baker, or a candlestick maker to keep it "relevant."

"Men lie, women lie, numbers don't."

Actually, they do not have the bestselling tablet nor laptop. Tablets go to Asus and laptops go to dell.

They don't have the “biggest stacks of cash" either. Exxon Mobil and Royal Dutch Shell's bankroll compared to Apple's is like laying an AmEx black next to a Green Dot card.

Check your numbers before making a point and educating other people. Apple is only the biggest mp3 player seller and we all know that the mp3 industry is pretty much dead.

It's easier to trash talk than defeat a competitor

A step backwards for Apple, they don't need to do this but yet can't help themselves.

If Siri really answers questions about glass like that, its hilarious. Kind of like the commercial where the iPad is compared to the Windows tablet and you hear the Siri voice. M$ slapped around the iPad but in a way it seems like Apple is slapping themselves around in a strange way, well, to me anyway, HAHA.

It's apple - they can't help but talk trash about their competitors.

Apple is better than most of their competitors in terms of senseless trash talk. Look at Samsung and MS and then tell me Apple is that bad, one of the reasons I respect the company is because they don't do ad campaigns devoted entirely to bashing another product. It doesn't make a cocky remark like this that couldn't be said up front acceptable, but I don't think Apple is that terrible in the field of trash talk.

Sorry, but Apple is a trash according to the facts about poor products and lack of morality:

1) no free copy a file
2) no default app (browser) selection
3) just 20 years old icon concept
4) "Apple iOS Apps Leak More Personal Info Than Android".
5) "iPhones most vulnerable among smartphones"
6) "40% of iOS popular apps invade your privacy without any permission"
7) "Apple censoring iCloud emails and attachments!"
8) "Apple played 'central role' in ebook price-fixing conspiracy"

I got a different response. It said, "I'm going to apply for a patent on wearable computers and sue Google Glass for copying me."

I know, I think its hilarious. I have an android phone and I can still laugh at myself. Stop taking yourselves so serious people. Wow you people need a life. Stop winging.

Good job apple. Can't wait for android to bring something cheeky back (will probs be samsung)

Poor Siri, I guess she don't do that.
She just likes to talk.

LOL that's really funny. On another subject, why is everybody so upset at PA for having Apple related articles?? The site is called PHONEarena not ANDROIDarena.... Besides a few non serious articles once in a while are all right :)

Hahaha, even tough it seems a desperate move from Apple (funny, anyway) it's tempting to give it a try... my imagination just blew off while reading this with "her" voice, hehe
