They use Siri to fill the loneliness inside.

My Brother asked me what I thought of that commercial, and I must say it makes me feel sad for John Malcovich.  How lonely do you have to be to discuss philosophy with a phone?

Apple’s Siri commercials have evolved from the first Siri ads that focused on getting people used to asking a machine questions.  The new batch of ads use the celebrity factor to make it seem normal to carry on an entire conversation with Siri.  People already isolate themselves enough already and hide behind social media (blogging irony!) avoiding true friendship for a “safe” controllable alternative.  Is it responsible marketing on Apple’s part to make staying at home and dancing with your phone seem like normal and healthy behavior?  Everyone knows that kind of behavior is quirky at best…
