Siri Doesn't Approve of Scarlett Johansson's Samantha in Her

1 of 7

It wasn't so long ago when Apple promised us the stunning technological companion of the 21st century, fully capable of personal interaction and near-human thought... and gave us Siri.

More of a joke than a tool, Siri's advice has been sought after in all sorts of situations--from burying bodies to playing dungeon master in D&D--almost never for anything serious.

In Spike Jonze's latest film, starring Joaquin Phoenix, a depressed man named Theodore Twombly falls in love with the disembodied voice of Samantha, his new smart phone's operating system. Samantha, voiced by Hollywood bombshell Scarlett Johansson, is a top-of-the-line artificial intelligence with an uncanny sense of depth and ever-increasing human-like ability to simulate emotion.

You simply can't help but compare.

    Awesome read. Because I read this from my new iPad, I asked Siri a few questions about 'Her' and she even sounds angry when I ask. Great find!

    That's genius - kudos to Siri's team for forethought and humor!

    That's excellent! I don't have anything except an old iPod Touch so no Siri for me.
