Apple Updates Siri to Make Fun of Google Glass Fans



Apple has updated Siri recently with the ability to give smart responses to those who mock it with a command 'Okay Glass', which is originally used to control Google Glass. From now on, each time Siri hears these two words, it will reply with one of such phrases:

  • "Just so you know, I don't do anything when you blink at me."
  • "Stop trying to strap me to your forehead. It won't work."
  • "I think that glass is half empty."
  • "I'm not Glass. And I'm just fine with that."
  • "Very funny. I mean, not funny "ha-ha," but funny."
  • "Glass? I think you've got the wrong assistant."

If you have nothing better to do, check whether you have the latest version of Siri virtual assistant installed on your device and try to play with it on your own.
