If you don't know who Siri is by now, you're definitely missing out. Perhaps one of the coolest features of the new iPhone 4S, Siri is the voice-based virtual personal assistant that comes with the new smartphone.

Need to change the time of your appointment? No problem. Just tell Siri and she'll fix the issue right up. Want a reminder to call your mom on her birthday? Take a load off. Siri's here to save the day.

So, it should come as no surprise that new iPhone 4S users absolutely love Siri to pieces. Which is totally normal. But a love song dedicated to the robot in your phone? Not so normal. Still doesn't stop it from being hilarious, though.

Jonathan Mann, who you may recognize from his song-a-day YouTube project, has decided to come out with it and admit to his deep love for Siri. And we're sure glad he did, because the aftermath is absolutely amazing. Watch his video "Duet With Siri" -- yeah, it's a duet between him and the voice-activated robot --below. Enjoy.

    So.... he did the same thing that geeks have been doing with AI programs since at least the 1980's... try to have a conversation and make yuks of the responses. His twist? He set it to music. In my opinion, that's not particularly creative and the lyrics are terribly shoehorned. http://www.definitions.net/de...

    Hating Apple products is so trendy! Don't you just LOVE bashing something you've never used? It's just so POPULAR!!
  • realist TelFiRE 2011/10/21 18:14:46

    and easy to do if you're not a sheep
  • TelFiRE realist 2011/10/21 23:47:12
    TelFiRE
    That does mot make sense. bashing something you haven't used is easy for non sheep!? You don't understand what sheep means. You are the sheep, I use the less popular product because I've tried both and prefer the one I picked. You're such a pathetic loser if you have to bash other people's choice of freaking electronic devices to
    Make you feel good about yourself.
  • realist TelFiRE 2011/10/22 00:02:29
    realist
    lol yep because attacking someone for the opinion of an electronic device is so trendy. she wasn't bashing the product, just the company which deserves it.
  • TelFiRE realist 2011/10/26 00:26:38

    Only if you're a sheep.

    They are. They raised a guy who can actually write in English decently, who thinks for himself, and who doesn't go around bashing people because of stupid petty things like what electronics they use.
  • realist TelFiRE 2011/10/26 16:44:11
    realist
    you just bashed someone for what electronics they don't like....think before you type
  • TelFiRE realist 2011/11/03 06:23:58

    You're lying, I did nothing of the sort.

    "Hating Apple products is so trendy! Don't you just LOVE bashing something you've never used? It's just so POPULAR!!" i rest my case
  • TelFiRE realist 2011/11/03 12:58:18 (edited)
    TelFiRE
    So you admit I did nothing of the sort then. Or are you honestly so dense that you think that statement is somehow intended to offend everyone who doesn't own an Apple product?! No!!! My whole point, from the beginning, is and was that people shouldnt bash others for their electronic choices. I am NOT bashing PC users, i am bashing PC users who view themselves as superior and make it their business to let other people know how stupid they think people who don't agree with them are.

    You NEED a reading comprehension class and I am not kidding, as you do NOT have a grasp on the English language.

    Suri! Suri!
    Are they going give you a cute talking head yet?
    I can see teen boys trying to make-out with the screen, especially if you've been programmed to give smackers back.

    Suri:
    Call Mom, tell here we are at the movies and not to panic if the phone doesn't answer.
    (I do not have time to chat with mom for 10 minutes, the movie is starting, since every call is at least 5 minutes to get the basics out.)

    Suri:
    I changed my mind - reset message. Make the same call a text message from me...

    Suri:
    Call Domino's Pizza for me. I want a large sausage and pepperoni. Use my Master Card.

    Suri:
    Call my boss, and tell him I have a cough and cannot come to the phone. I'll be home in BED all day...

    (The best excuse for a virtual robo maid is probably the last one.)
