Siri-ously?! Siri makes fun of Google Glass

Apple’s snarky personal assistant has it out for Google’s Glass. Telling Siri, “OK Glass,” earns you a smart aleck response that can only be described as unfavourable. Some of the responses we got included jokes about Glass being ‘half empty’ and Siri telling us to stop trying to strap our phones to our foreheads. The snide remarks are available on Siri-equipped phones running iOS 6, but the Verge reports you’ll hear several more witticisms if you’re running the iOS 7 beta.

It’s unknown if Siri’s smack talk is anything new, but with Apple rumoured to be launching a smartwatch in the coming months, it makes sense that the company would try to put down Google’s piece of wearable tech as much as possible.

So what happens when you ask Google Now, the service powering Glass, about Siri? You get the stock index of Sirius satellite radio (SIRI).

    This is funny not “unfavourable”. Get a sense of humour. I hardly think google glass will succeed or fail based on what Suri says.

  2. Tim says:

    It seems Siri is narkier in Australia. Siri’s response to the same question: “I think that Glass is half empty”
