(This is the second in the series of three articles about Apple's Siri. Last month we covered her history.
"Make me laugh."Siri:
"I can't. I always forget the punch line."
In spite of her protestations, Siri is definitely entertaining
: "Beam me up."Siri:
"Please remove your belt, shoes and jacket, and empty your pockets."Me:
"What is the meaning of life?"Siri:
"I don't know, but I think there's an app for that."Me:
"Take me to your leader."Siri:
"I have no leader other than you, Susanna."Me:
"What are you wearing?"Siri:
"I can't answer that, but it doesn't come off."Me:
"Where did I put my meds."Siri:
"Didn't you just have them?"Me:
"I'm not allowed to delete reminders, Susanna."Me:
"You see things, and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were, and I say, 'Why not?'"
Yes, she really does quote George Bernard Shaw
Try these questions with your Siri and she might come up with other answers. I found a repertoire of up to three answers for some questions.
And so you don't need to do it yourself, say the "F" word and she'll respond with "I'd blush if I could." For the "S" word, she responds "Now, now."
"That's fine. I just hope you're not doing anything dangerous."
And for the last laugh. Me
: "Good morning."Siri:
"Good morning? It's 6 PM!"
