Jesse Mincey on who we talk to that is not Siri:
We talk to each other to communicate, to comfort, to teach, and sometimes to direct and dominate (for good or not so good). We also talk to ourselves. We talk to our pets. We talk to God. We talk to inanimate objects. We talk to traffic.
And more and more we talk to Siri; mostly questions, some requests, but the numbers are growing.
Over time we’ve become more accustomed to talking to Siri, asking questions, and knowing what to ask so as not to stump the poor dear and not to get ourselves frustrated by anemic responses. You know. Like talking to teenagers.
