Android Voice Commands are totally a ripoff of Siri, right?

3 Jan

I don’t dislike Siri, in fact I think she’s a great addition to the army of useful things that the iPhone has at its disposal. However I do need to Apple fanboys and fangirls to stop acting as if nobody has ever done anything before Apple has done it, especially when it comes to voice commands.

When Siri debuted, every person I know who got an iPhone 4s raved about how awesome it was, and how my little Android phone was missing out on this technological breakthrough. I was a loser… nay…. THE ENTIRETY OF ANDROID USERS were losers because we didn’t have Siri to help guide us through our phone usage.

But we did.

No we didn’t have Siri, but our girlfriend Voice Commands has been good to us. We’ve been together since August of 2010 at LEAST, and anytime I needed her she was there to help me.

So no Siri, I will not leave my girlfriend Voice Commands for you and your legion of adoring fans. Stop calling me at 3am. It makes you look like a creepy stalker.

Men In Black 3: Men In Blacker

19 Dec

So, a couple of weeks ago this came out and my insides turned over in the worst possible way:

Another Men In Black movie? That seems odd since MIIB came out in 2002 and the first MIB film came out in 1997, it seems kind of a stretch for the folks who made this movie to think there would still be loyalty income to squeeze out of the pockets of moviegoers.

Then I watched the trailer again and realized I’m one of those loyal moviegoers that will probably go see this movie. I mean come on, sci-fi comedy where there is a 100% possibility of someone blowing shit up?! Of COURSE I’m going to see it. I’m not expecting it to be Oscar worthy, however I do wanna see fun special effects aliens in order to escape my boring regular life, and in all honesty that’s all I can really ask of any movie nowadays.
