Siri vs. Google Glass – Who Would Win in a Fight?
By Rodney Barnes on August 28, 2013
This may not be the MMAs but I’m imagining a match of wits reminiscent of the subtle and cutting remarks you’d see in shows like The Newsroom or Downton Abbey or those Victorian dramas you were supposed to read in high school.
Right now Siri has the upper hand: if you ask her about Google Glass or provoke her with the prompt meant for the competing device, she’ll come back with such snarky responses as, “I think that Glass is half empty,” or “Stop trying to strap me to your forehead.” Keep pushing and her surly reply is, “Very funny. I mean, not funny ha-ha, but funny.” Ouch.
Google’s retort? Apparently, asking Glass about Siri will earn you a comeback whose bite is thinly covered by a veil of humility: “Siri, it’s not you – it’s me. I just met Google Voice Search and fell hard for her. She doesn’t just listen; she understands me.”
Welp, my popcorn’s ready.
