NSFW - Siri Fails At Couples Therapy

The iPhone 4S's new voice command interface may seem magical, but she can't perform miracles. Don't force her into the middle of your personal problems.

There is already a wealth of Siri humor out there such as this site and this Facebook page. But the height of the art form so far is a spoof ad from the geniuses at CollegeHumor:

As long as we're leaning on Siri for unpleasant communications, this all raises some interesting possibilities:

  • "Siri, fire the following employees..."
  • "Siri, make sure my kids are asleep by 8:30"
  • "Siri, and tell them to pick up their damn toys"
  • "Siri, tell my girlfriend that I think we should see other people"
