Conan takes a jab at Siri

Conan takes a jab at Siri
Oh yeah, Siri – the personal voice assistant exclusive to the iPhone 4S that tips the scales for early buyers. Siri differs from other voice assistant as it's actually intelligent – it learns and it takes context into account, but where are its limits? How about taking two guys from the street and insert them in between moments of that very first Siri commercial showing us how people tie their ties and ask about the weather. 

But we all know those are far from the only questions that bother the human race. Actually, compared to existential rumblings about the distance to “diarrhea town,” those simply fade into irrelevance. Oh, what else, you wonder? Just check out the video below, but be warned – while you can't see Siri's answer in the ad, the female-voiced assistant definitely has the attitude to reply back, so try it on your iPhone 4S with caution.

As funny as this is it unfortunately tells a frustrating future where all teenagers who are apples primary user base talking continually in public to siri with more and more stupid and irrelevant questions. Expect to hear siri answer the question "Do my friends think im cool" a couple of million times in public spaces

Conan hit it out the park on this one. Its more or less an app that will only be as fun as the next stupid question you ask it..

Who cares what Conan says on the subject. Since when is he an expert on tech or smartphones? Just another overpaid celebrity.

I asked iris if she was single. She replied: "Wouldn't you like to know?" Yes iris.

I wouldn't really call it taking a jab at Siri, just commenting on the maturity level a lot of American's have. I mean my friend on the first day he had 4s asked Siri how to hide a dead body.

Americans, not American's. Not really taking a jab at your grammar, just commenting on the knowledge level of the apostrophe that bossmt_2 has. - GrAmMaR King

From what I remember, it says something about looking for the nearest quarry or ditch. If you Google it, you'll find some videos. I'm at work, so I can't link one myself.
