Siri is Not as Good as You Think

There are many little hurdles Apple has put down to slow down jailbreaking and get people to upgrade to iOS 6. Now they’re using Siri.Apple wants people to upgrade to the newest iOS and have been doing quite a lot to get people to do so. App exclusivity, over the air update alters and notification badges in settings that is the default. These are subtle annoyances, but now Apple has a lesss than subtle approach.

A user on Reddit asked Siri when the Super Bowl was starting. Siri’s response was, “If you update to the latest version of iOS, I’ll be able to help you with that” I’ve never seen a computer program blackmail the user so blatantly. Ok, that’s being a little unfair. Siri has plenty of other sports’ information available and Siri on iOS 6 is “smarter” than its previous incarnation. But still, this is a rather basic question, one that Siri was able to answer a month ago. The problem has come about during that time. Apple seems to have made previous versions of Siri more difficult to use.

      What the fuck did you just fucking say you little bitch?I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and
      I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have
      over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the
      top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just
      another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes
      of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking
      words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the
      Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret
      network of spies across the USA and your IP is
      being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The
      storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life.
      You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you
      in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not
      only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to
      the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it
      to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the
      continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy
      retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon
      you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t,
      you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will
      shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead,
      kiddo.
