Oh Siri, you precocious little whippersnapper, what kind of nonsense are you trying to pull? Are the new iPhone ads, featuring Samuel L. Jackson and Zooey Deschanel, going to your head? What are we to make of your latest transgression?
The Next Web reports that some users who ask Siri what the best smarthone ever is are being told that it’s none other than the Nokia Lumia 900 4G.
Siri’s amusing recommendation is drawing comments from hosts of Nokia and Microsoft fans worldwide (yes, there are still many of them), which in itself is rather amusing. It’s kinda like watching people cheer because the magical mirror told the queen that Snow White is actually the fairest of them all.
Hopefully needless to say, the reason why Siri is making the above recommendation isn’t because Apple thinks the iPhone 4S is subpar (as if).
It’s simply because Siri bases its answer to that particular question on results from Wolfram Alpha, which itself draws from users reviews Web-wide.
Interestingly enough, when I asked Siri what was the best smartphone ever, she simply replied, “Wait, there are other phones?”
