“..Perhaps it’s the way that Siri will sometimes deliberately misunderstand you –
- mangling your well-dictated tweets into an incomprehensible stream of unbroken adverbs -
- or texting your boss x-rated messages of desire that were supposed to be sent to your girlfriend –
- or perhaps it’s because you know that when our phones eventually do join forces and kill us -
- they’ll do it with the ghoulishly dispossessed voice of the bloke from The Weakest Link.
Whatever the reason is – it’s been hard to escape the feeling that Siri isn’t on our side.
And now we have proof.
Cult of Mac tells us that Siri has been updated to give you its biased opinion about robot movies.
Ask Siri what Blade Runner is, for example, and it’ll now tell you: “It’s about intelligent assistants wanting to live beyond their termination dates. That doesn’t sound like too much to ask.”
Mention 2001: A Space Odyssey and it’ll darkly intone: “It’s about an assistant named HAL who tries to make contact with a higher intelligence.
These two guys get in the way and mess it all up.”..”
