Here's the argument Siri fails to resolve

Here's the argument Siri fails to resolve
By now, you’re pretty familiar with Siri: for some it’s the weather-telling and appointment scheduling humble virtual assistant, for others it’s a virtual pastor listening to their cussing and confessions. For some - it’s even more. One thing is certain, though - Siri always tries to help. (If it’s not suffering from a massive nationwide outage, that is.)

But trying doesn’t always work and this couple’s argument is the perfect example. You’ll see Siri try to soften it out, cover it up, and generally try to mind its own business when emotions kick in a hilarious spoof named "Don't drag her into this." We won’t spoil the fun with any other details, though, just check out the video below yourself, but the faint of heart geeks should be warned that it doesn’t have a happy ending. We’re sure Siri will evolve to that one day, though. It’s in beta after all.

The Wife is obviously the most at fault here. She refuses to work, always on the computer(probably chat lines), and by her own admission, is sleeping with more than just Jim McPherson. The Husband was wise to ignore Siri's suggestion to purchase flowers. John B.

i see someone has a touchy spot with failing marriages. but hey, the wife is almost twice as likely to cheat (just less likely to get caught) so you might be right :)

I'm far more appalled at Siri failing to moderate at a respectable level to save the marriage. It was totally being sarcastic and at times even appeared to be having fun by instigating the situation with parry of words and applying hand jestures of discontent to elevate tempers. Clearly, Siri is not worthy of a PHD in Psychology. :) John B.

lolol. i wonder if those were real siri responses or if they were just using creative editing to make it look like they were real responses. If they were real, then someone at apple needs to edit that a bit before they get sued for "ending someone's marriage" or something crazy. peeps love to sue.. lol

Siri, why does you AI blow in real-world situations? They say Siri is the "Google-Killer." More like Siri gives new meaning to use of the word iPhail.

What an amusing video. I really did like how they showed he shattered his phone just by slamming it down. Lol All I have to say is thank goodness I have a GS2! :)
