Apple's "Siri" has a sense of humor The Verge's Joshua Topolsky has posted a note today about Siri's sense of humor.
Last week, Apple launched the iPhone 4S, a minor hardware upgrade to the iPhone 4 and saw 1 million pre-order sales in just 24 hours.

Along with the iPhone 4S, Apple also launched iOS 5 which adds 200 new features.

One of the main sells of the iPhone 4S is the addition of "Siri," a voice activated personal assistant.

As Apple explains: "Siri on iPhone 4S lets you use your voice to send messages, schedule meetings, place phone calls, and more. Ask Siri to do things just by talking the way you talk. Siri understands what you say, knows what you mean, and even talks back. Siri is so easy to use and does so much, you?ll keep finding more and more ways to use it."

It appears, though, that Apple's Siri has a sense of humor when asked certain questions.

I will post a few here, and you can check the rest here.

“Siri, play me a flash video….”

“Sorry i cannot do that, my people don't believe in such a thing…."

I have to give them props for the Douglas Adams joke. Someone needs to port this to Android; it wouldn't be much work since the only thing apple did was to take android apps and add jokes.

I love how the 4S is an upgrade to itself

Use Skyfire. Works no problem.

Not sure why you have to have a 4S to get this feature other than they wanted it to use it as an incentive to get people to upgrade to the 4S and then upgrade again when the 5 comes out in 6 - 8 months (if the rumors are true)
