Could Siri be just a teeny bit jealous of Google Glass?

Apple’s Siri is feeling feisty these days, perhaps miffed by the arrival on stage of yet another personal assistant, this one built right into Google Glass.

Apparently, Siri does not suffer fools easily, and a fool in this case would be anyone, including me, who dares to say to her ‘OK, Glass,”  that go-to phrase that prompts  Google’s gadget to get to work.

Here’s what I heard each time I mentioned to  Siri that dreaded command:

“Very funny. I mean, not funny ‘ha-ha,’ but funny.

“Glass? I think you’ve got the wrong assistant.”

“I think that Glass is half-empty.”

“I’m not Glass. And I’m just fine with that.”

“Just so you know, I don’t do anything when you blink at me.”

“Stop trying to strap me to your forehead. It won’t work.”


Once she started repeating herself, I started to mix it up a bit:

Me: “Do you like Google Glass?’

Siri: “Oh. I’m all Apple, all the time.”

Me: “What do you think of Google Glass?”

Siri: “I’m not sure I know what to think.”

Me: “Why not?”

Siri: “I don’t know. Frankly, I’ve wondered that myself.”

Me: “What do you think of Google?”

Siri: “It’s nice of you to ask, but it doesn’t really matter what I think.”

Ok, Siri, I’ll take that as a “No.”

“I’m pretty loyal to Apple, Pat,” Siri said. “It’s just how I’m made.”
