Siri is not ‘Her’
The programmers at Apple want you to know that Siri is not “Her,” or rather, she isn’t the female lead in the new Spike Jonze movie of the same name. Joaquin Phoenix plays the main character, a depressed man who falls in love with the voice on his new smart phone. Scarlett Johansson’s disembodied voice, also called “Samantha” in the film, drew plenty of comparisons to Siri – or rather, a more advanced version of the iPhone feature, and it looks like Apple isn’t too happy about it. ABuzzFeed reporter found that Siri has been updated to clarify that the two are not one and the same.
Really? We thought “Samantha” was “personable and flirty.”
