My iPad says funny stuff, too

26 Dec

I got an iPad Mini for Christmas. I love it. I particularly like conversing with Siri and pretending I’m Samuel L. Jackson. Naturally my kids think Siri is pretty awesome. Actually, only my daughter will admit Siri is fun; my son will not admit anything is fun unless he discovered it.

The more you use her, the more Siri becomes accustomed to your voice, so she’s pretty down with me. My daughter has a much higher, brighter voice. It gives Siri fits.

Daughter: Siri, what is the wind chill today?

Siri: I’m afraid I don’t understand.

Daughter: What is the wind chill today?

Siri: I don’t know. Shall I search the Internet for “My fellatio football”?

      I’d give money to see Siri interact with kids. She’s a hot mess with my daughter.

    Just wait – eventually, if your kids get adventurous enough (and which kids don’t?), they’ll get Siri to say something to the effect of, “I don’t think that’s appropriate!”

    Here’s hoping they’re a ways away from that moment…. 🙂

    I talk to my Android and some British chick talks back. She doesn’t understand a lot either. I haven’t given her much of a chance, though. I have a Samsung Note phone with has a 5 3/4 inch screen, so it’s like a little tablet. I love it!

    So funny! My daughter got a new ipod and has been trying to converse with Siri. It’s hilarious.

    I…wait, how does someone do that with a football? Or did I miss an alternate definition?

    Maybe Siri could explain it to me.

    I actually want a Siri in my life, because I dream of smart houses (without awkward privacy issues) and love it when I can make my computer talk to me. Mr. Wonderful things it’s freaky when my computer talks, but there’s no way I’m changing the settings.

      I could use Siri more, but I’m kind of a control freak. She also disagrees with me about the weather. She thinks 25 is bad; I think it’s pretty good weather for a run.
