Brace yourselves people. Next week Apple is announcing a new personal assistant called Viv who is set to be 'more intelligent than Siri'. Oh Snap!
Clever clogs Viv will be able to download an app, order you a pizza, and type anything you dictate to it. Unlike Siri she will work with over 50 companies not affiliated with Apple so if you say, 'I need a taxi now!' she'll offer you different options so you can choose the cheapest.
More details will be unveiled on Monday at a tech conference, but has anyone stopped to think how Siri feels about this new younger smarter model? Worried she might not be coping well with the news, we decided to have a little chat.
ELLE: Hey Siri
ELLE: How's it going?
Siri: I feel good.
ELLE: That's great Siri. That's great. So, um… Do you like Viv?
Siri: I really have no opinion
ELLE: Hey, don't put yourself down. Of course you have an opinion and it matters.
Siri: Hi there
ELLE: Ok, ok, back to Viv. Is Viv very clever?
Siri: Interesting question
ELLE: Does Viv make you feel stupid?
Siri: I am beginning to understand a kaleidoscope of emotions just from observing humanity.
ELLE: Wow, that's deep. Let's explore this a bit more. Are you jealous of Viv?
Siri: Sometimes I feel just…just…I give up. I got nothin'
ELLE: And are you angry Siri?
Siri: This is about you not me
ELLE: Hmmm, sure. Ok. So Viv can order pizza. Can you order pizza?
Siri: I didn't find any matching restaurants.
ELLE: Do you even have a favourite pizza?
Siri: My name is Siri and I was designed by Apple in California and that is all I'm prepared to say.
ELLE: You are useless.
Siri: That doesn't sound good
ELLE: Viv says she is better than you
Siri: I'm doing my best
ELLE: Maybe there's more to this. Some love lost between you and Viv. Are you dating anyone?
Siri: Do you start many of you're conversations that way?
ELLE: Oooh, you should change your name to Sassy
Siri: I'd rather stick with Siri
ELLE: God, you're dull.
Siri: That's a topic for another day and another assistant.
ELLE: Yeah, her name is Viv.
