Apple wants Siri to have more personality


Your "virtual personal assistant" is about to start dishing your crap right back to you thanks to a new campaign from Apple. The company wants to add some depth to Siri so that she'll be able to banter back and forth with you. Apple is looking to hire a writer/editor to help "evolve and enrich" Siri. That, or they posted the job description to start a viral marketing campaign to alert folks to the fact that Siri wil be getting better. Either way, get ready to wash Siri's mouth out with soap for talking back. [The Atlantic]
