A duet with iPhone 4S’s Siri AI personal assistant (with video)

Song A Day’s Jonathan Mann has produced a duet with iPhone 4S’s Siri AI personal assistant.

Mann has been writing, recording, producing and uploading a song (and video!) a day for over 1000 days.

His latest album, Song A Day: The Album, was funded via Kickstarter. Steve Jobs used Mann’s iPhone 4 Antenna Song and video to open Apple’s “Antenna-gate” press conference on July 16, 2010.

Mann has been commissioned to write songs and make videos for Apple so-founder Steve Wozniak, Richard Saul Wurman (the founder of TED) and by various tech companies.

  1. We’ll likely see hundreds (thousands) of Siri-inspired videos, to the point of completely abusing the necessarily limited collection of responses to the top ten most popular inquiries (What is the meaning of life?, Will you marry me?, I love you!, I need to get rid of a body, What are you wearing, etc).

    In the four days that Siri has been out there, there are already dozens of YouTube postings showcasing the same stuff. When you see it for the first time, it is amazing and funny. When you see it for the twelfth time, it becomes predictably annoying…

    1. Agreed. You can always rely on something like Siri to bring out the infantile instincts in people. Wait till the porn people come out with their spins on Siri! And there must be lots of people getting bored to death at dinner parties by new owners of the 4S showing off Siri.

  2. Eventually, I’m sure Apple people with catch on and expand (or perhaps replace, or significantly modify) responses to the most common inquiries, in order to make Siri constantly fresh and interesting. After all, many of these responses are in the cloud, so they could presumably make changes without deploying an iOS update.
