Apple looking to hire someone to "evolve" Siri's personality

Apple looking to hire someone to
A job listing at Apple (which has already been pulled down) was found today that had the company trying to find someone to help "evolve" Siri's personality. Apple loves to make its users feel a personal connection to iOS devices, and Siri has become a big part of that, because the voice-powered virtual assistant goes a long way towards anthropomorphizing an iOS device, giving it a character.

In the job listing, Apple was looking for someone creative, who could “help the Siri team evolve Siri as a distinct, recognizable character,” and to “develop and write original dialog to support new Siri capabilities.” It went on to read:

As we said, the job listing has already been pulled from the Apple website, but that doesn't necessarily mean the job no longer exists. Apple will continue to work on Siri, so we wouldn't be surprised to see the listing come back.

Oh, that would make SIRI change it's name to EVIE, but i still doubt it will change the personality. Maybe, it will know how to persuade more men to eat a bite each on 'Apple'...(you know what i mean)

apple should know that if siri became too intelligent it would start making apple jokes by itself. "hey siri, tell me a joke" siri: "Apple......Maps"......

clearly ever since Jobs die apples been on a rollercoaster that going down. how about apple buy the voice right of famous celebrity voice (morgan freeman,t pain,south park,voices we recognize etc) and let us choose it as the default voice tone of siri. Apple has the best marketing team literally and this can be big with all the celebrity hypes. Im not siding with andriod or apple here, just want to share my idea.

Lol personality! Give me a break it's just adding more to a useless gimmick! Apple must be lonely. Hopefully their users aren't that lonely.

I don't need personality... I need a correct response. Then again, Apple's always been about form over function.

Come on, Apple should just give this whole Siri crap a rest...In the same amount of time Apple developed Siri, Samsung has done Smart Stay, Popup play, multi-window, Smart Rotate and many minor ones.

Too bad most people realize SIRI is a stupid useless gimmick after a few days and it's quicker and easier to just do the task yourself.
