In A Terrible Alternate Reality, Siri Is Your Mum

To celebrate Mother’s Day, the team at The Daily Dot tracked down the real-life voice of Siri, and put her to work giving motherly advice to a real-life human.

On the one hand, it’s fun to imagine a world in which Siri is your mum: totally practical, but useless at small talk. But it’s also a little eerily creepy. Digital assisstants are already “like a member of your family”; why not do away with the family altogether? At least Siri won’t get mad if you forgot to buy her flowers today. [YouTube]
