Celebrities are just like us!

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…

Subliminal Apple

14 03 2012

Do you remember when people used to think there were subliminal messages in commercials?  That there was some message being played in reverse that would subconsciously enter your mind and the next thing you knew you had 15 bags of Cheetos in your house, but you didn’t know where they came from?  Well, in my opinion, Apple does this visually.  I know I’m way late on commenting on this, but let’s talk about Siri.  In all of the initial commercials for Apple’s voice application, none of the eyes of the adults talking to the phone were shown.

It seems like Apple wants to separate the voice from the human aspect and make it normal to carry on a conversation with a machine (which some lonely people are more than willing to do)

That just can’t be good for human kind, but it will make it easier for the super wealthy to adapt to their robot maids.
