Last week, my friends (10 of them) came for vacation and with them were 3 iPad 2s, an iPhone 4 and two iPhone 4s. Though I am not much of an Apple fan, we were really enjoying Siri, Apple’s virtual assistant. And so there we were fooling with Siri and I could not help but appreciate the development that has gone into making Siri more functional. One other thing I have noticed is the ease of communicating with Siri. What I mean about ease is that iPhone 4s users can talk naturally with the virtual assistant and without being robotic themselves. This was the common problem with previous voice assistants. Siri seems to be getting closer to what we have seen in action-sci-fi movies.
Fooling around with Siri last week reminded me of viral videos I have seen in YouTube all about Siri and what it “supposedly” can do. So I have decided to collect top of the 6 best Siri videos made. Of course the videos, which you will be seeing below, are highly exaggerated, unrealistic (maybe) and funny. So below I am giving you my top 5 Siri videos from YouTube starting from 5 down to my no. 1 pick. Please be reminded that the videos below are not mine.
So here goes my top 6.
At No. 6
Siri I Need to Hid a Body
Nothing special here except that Siri gladly gave options to a where a person might hide a body. You’d see so many versions of this in YouTube. So here is the representative of all those videos.
At No. 5
Siri Horror Movie
So some guys thought it’d be great to make Siri look like a someone/something who’d take over the world. I really like how they edited this video.
At No. 4
This is one of the early videos made about Siri. It shows a couple arguing with each other. Funny how Siri was portrayed as doing everything to stop the argument but eventually ended up being thrown. It may look funny but we could all end up doing the same thing in the future if we ever get more high-tech with voice assistants.
At No. 3
Siri Tried to Kill Me
This video is about Siri who happened to “realize” as humans do. Just check the video out.
At No. 2.
Siri in Big Bang
Really love this part. Raj, a character in the comedy series Big Bang Theory, gets obsessed with Siri. Here is an excerpt of that episode.
At No. 1
Meet Vangie, The Pinoy (Filipino) Virtual Assistant.
Here’s the Filipino way of making fun of Siri. I really loled watching this. If you can’t understand this, click on the video after this for the “English Version”. Props to Macapuno Systems (channel in YouTube) for doing a great job. Visit them in their Youtube Channel if you want to see the parts 2-5 of Vangie, the Pinoy Virtual Assistant.
