Important SOS news this week. Thanks to a tip from resident cyborg P5t5r, I may have found the perfect replacement for my fickle friend Graham. That’s right. I’m talking about Siri, the iPhone 4S robotic assistant.
First, full disclosure – I don’t have an Iphone 4S and will probably have to deliver a lot more than pizza before I can afford one. BUT that hasn’t stopped me from offering Siri the job as my new survival assistant. Like Graham, Siri can tell me the weather or how to contact CERN or when my library books are due.
Unlike Graham, Siri won’t get distracted or spooked or discouraged. She won’t ditch me for school work or drag me out looking for a new date or sip zombie lattes or let our complete and utter lack of coin interfere with the important mission of supernatural survival. That’s right Graham. I’m looking forward to offering your job to Siri. She’s everything I need now.
Of course I’m still at the pre-preliminary talking stages with Siri. But I think initial conversations have been going very well. For instance, I got in a good word to her on Saturday night in an elevator. This guy pulled out his iPhone 4S to ask Siri about show times and I managed to get in a few words with her before security was called (see transcript above). Needless to say I’m confident we can work something out really soon.
Of course, lots of people are saying it’s crazy to get involved with Siri, that she will just take over your life. Don’t let her pretty tree name fool you, she’s really the illegitimate daughter of Hal and Sal 9000. But until I see Siri cut off someone’s air supply and/or propel them into deep space, I’m still looking forward to the day I can convince Siri to be my new survival assistant.
So if you happen to spot Siri again before I do, could you put in a good word for me? Just make sure you’re not in an air lock first. Just to be on the safe side…by Seth Greening - Visit SethOnSurvival.com
