Oh no she didn’t: Apple programs Siri to diss Google Glass


Ok Glass Siri remarks collage

Okay, we admit that while altogether pretty awesome, Google Glass definitely isn’t for everyone. Guess it shouldn’t surprise us to find Apple’s voice activated personal assistant, Siri, isn’t too fond of the wearable tech.

An Easter Egg found in both current iOS 6 and beta versions of iOS 7, speaking the now iconic “Ok Glass” command when activating Siri will pull up a whole range of snarky comments and remarks about one of the best things to happen to technology since the smartphone. You can see from the collage above, comments like “Stop trying to strap me to your forehead,” and “I think that Glass is half empty,” are just a few of the quips.

All jokes aside it’s not uncommon to find Apple taking jabs whenever they can at rival Google. Back when iOS 7 was unveiled, it was announced that Apple’s Siri was dropped Google search in favor of Microsoft’s Bing, putting the company’s own pride ahead of the needs of their users.

  1. Atleast they have a sense of humor about it. Id take cheap shots in good humor all day long over litigation

    1. Knowing Apple, there’ll be both!

    2. That’s the problem with many of these assistants. They try to cover up their flaws with stupid chatbox tricks.

  2. those are hilarious. ” I’m not glass. And I’m just fine with that” glass is more than “just fine” :)

    1. Yeah, I think Glass/Google Now is going to give her a complex. :P

  3. Try asking it about Microsoft, LOL

  4. “A trick is something a whore does for money”

    Okay, i’m kidding (not really), but this is quite funny. Google is updating and improving Google Now with new features, while Apple is adding new replies? Quite obvious who the winner is.

    1. Exactly, this snarky jab would be more appropriate if Siri worked better. While Apple spends their time on things like this and what their latest lawsuits will be, Google and the rest of the gang are busy taking their services to the next level.

  5. I think the real question is Why does Chavez have his iPhone call him Rosa O_o

    1. lol, good observation there!!

    2. It’s Kevin’s iPhone! :P

      1. Whatever you say……Rosa.

      2. things are adding up chris! first that tweet, now rosa. hmmm….. lol

    3. At least he doesn’t want to be called Chelsea!

  6. Intimidated much, Apple?

    1. Came in here to say that. How juvenile.

      1. hello kiddie….stop playing with your iToy :)

  7. Well at least it prouve that Siri as humor, or is it that it’s laughable….lol.

  8. “Rosa?!!!!!! “one of the best things to happen to technology since the smartphone”…LOL

  9. I was recently visiting family and someone was entertaining everyone with all the silly things Siri will say. Somebody asked if my phone could do that, since they know I’m really into mobile tech. So I initiated Google Now and asked it the same question. When it didn’t speak a goofy answer, everyone was let down. Until I showed them the screen and the useful results it had given me. I told them, “Google Now is a useful tool, not a silly toy.” My point was well taken.

    1. Bravo

    2. no offense but your family is full of idiots

      1. US is a distorted market by marketing (selling too much rotten fruit) so it doesn’t mean they are stupid when they are stupid in IT….

        1. They’re entertained by bad jokes. Maybe it’s the picture you painted but they really sound impressed by the simplest things.

    3. Why would an adult want to hear their phone say silly things?

      1. Aldults are human, not buzzkill robots like everyone in the comments are being. Maybe I am being a buzzkill pointing it out but “stupid btch siri”? Really?

      2. Adults still like toys.

  10. I wonder what Siri has to say if you say “OK Google Now”?

  11. Come on Chris! One of the best things to happen to technology? LOL! Glass is an expensive parlor trick. Maybe in 10 years if it becomes fluent and more practical but right now it’s just a gag.

    1. You’re stuck on form factor. Think of all the voice recognition improvements and context based computing developed on its name. Moto X?

  12. I just tried SIRI, the second time I said “okay glass”…response was, until next time and SIRI closed….lol

  13. I asked Siri and Google Search/Now on my android at the same time “Where can i get some soup” and the Siri results were amazing, while google gave me places that were miles away.

    Just 1 man’s random test.

    1. Your Google voice search must be different from mine. I asked “Where can i get some soup” and a couple of YouTube videos popped up and links to websites of people asking “Where can I get some soup?”

      1. Gotta love those Rangers. lol

        1. Worst hurricane in New York history! (1:27 in if anyone is interested in the joke)

    2. I don’t know where you live but would you ever really want soup and need to ask where to get it? It’s great that it does that but it’s more for show.
      I asked for “restaurants near me and it accurately have me a list. That would be more useful.

    3. Yesterday I got stuck in Memphis when I arrived after my connecting flight had already departed. (Apparently they shut down the airport in vegas when it rains – wussies) Never been to Memphis, couldn’t tell you a damn thing about it other than I hear that they have good BBQ there (That remains to be seen). As I was walking down the really long terminal, I popped up google now and said “Show me the closest hotels” and bam… there they were. Courtyard by Marriott seemed like an ok proposition that the wife could live with.

      Google Now literally saved my ass last night.

      1. Please tell me you went somewhere other than Corky’s…

    4. Make sure gps is on, its an option on android.

    5. I asked Google Now the same thing and got a couple of locations near me that serve soup.

  14. Finally, some innovation from Apple.

    1. you made my day dude hahahaha

    2. I think Apple is the new Microsoft:
      1) no innovations, except for this :)
      2) outdated products
      3) lack of freedom, fascism
      4) corruption

      so according to the experience, Apple is doomed in 5 years

  15. Lol man and iphone users love to call Android gimmicky. Grasping at straws much Apple?

  16. stupid btch siri

  17. siri u mad ???

  18. Siri is so much better than google voice.

    Google voice never understands what i say.

    1. hes probably got a wicked accent like barry kripke from big bang theory…anyone remember that episode???

      1. case and point…..really wish google voice would improve

    2. Could you repeat that?

    3. Google doesn’t understand sheep

      1. lol…

  19. Microsoft probably put her in a bad mood with all the jabs they’ve been taking at her and apple products in their commercials lately. Lol

  20. It is because Apple’s only comeback to the innovation that Google does is to make jokes about Google.

  21. I wouldn’t call that “dissing”. There’s a difference between an insult directed at a product and having fun with your users…

    This obviously leans towards the latter. The only one that is borderline is the “half empty” comment, but that could really be applied to the user that apparently thinks their iPhone is a pair of glasses…

  22. siri is miley syrus

  23. just as Bernard replied I didn’t even know that any one able to earn $4831 in four weeks on the internet. did you read this link w­w­w.K­E­P­2.c­o­m

  24. let us remember this article when google glass is a huge success and apple copies and makes a product that is basically the same idea. i can see it now. the adverts will have some indie band or just melodic music and show life through the eyes of the consumer (picking up a child, playing with a pet, playing a sport, an arguement with a spouse, hailing a taxi, receiving a plate of food at a resturant, and a kickass party.) while showing the features of their product(recording video, snapping pics, ordering flowers for your spouse after the fight, gps navigation for the cab driver, read reviews of the food they order at the resturant, and status updates at the party). then a slogan like “Highlights of your life” or “It’s your life… Apple is here to help.”and then the apple logo.

    1. You forgot the part where Apple starts suing everyone else to try to get other glasses off the market by claiming that other companies copied their innovation. ;)

      1. That’ll happen after the commercials portraying apple as the innovator. you know because dumb judges will believe the commercials over evidence lol. then bans of google glass will follow. :-)

    2. The slogan should be “It’s your life… Apple is there to help… tell you how you can live it.”

  25. Introducing iPhone 5s!!!!! MAGICAL!

  26. Well, they can always look at pictures of stallions.

  27. For Apple to attack Android in its operating system and not just in ads, courts or comments spells FEAR.

      1. Wait, did I miss something? I thought this scene was with this hideous puppet below. Did Lucas go and redo the prequels a la “Special Edition” already?

  28. Ha that’s funny….why would anything think that’s an attack??? If you do, please remove the stick from you know where.

  29. All google need to do is show images of penises when someone Google’s Apple.

  30. Lol, two of those make it seem like Rosa REALLY wants the glass and Siri is upset with it.

  31. The butthurt is strong in this thread. Seriously, if you can’t laugh at this you got problems.

    1. Why so Siri-ous?

    2. It’s not funny “ha-ha,” but funny.

  32. Guess eye recognition won’t be coming anytime soon.

  33. my step dad recently bought a 2013 Audi TTS Convertible only from working parttime off a home computer… check w­w­w.K­E­P­2.c­o­m
