GLaDOS gets snarky with iPhone owners in Siri spoof

Apple recently announced Siri, an intelligent assistant for the iPhone 4S that’ll carry out your requests just by asking. “Siri on iPhone 4S lets you use your voice to send messages, schedule meetings, place phone calls, and more,” says Apple on its website. “Ask Siri to do things just by talking the way you talk. Siri understands what you say, knows what you mean, and even talks back.” 

But wouldn’t it be great if it was Portal’s GLaDOS doing the talking back with sarcastic back-handed remarks? YouTube user bamfer23 thought so, and made an amazing video to prove that Siri would be better with Aperture Science’s GLaDOS. According to bamfer23, the video is inspired by his love of Portal and offers a warning call for “GLaDOS’ inevitable take over of every iPhone in America.”

    I like it, but its all fun and games until glados kills you with a deadly nerve agent or apple carts you off to be transformed into the human-centipad

    wonder if you could screw the original up by giving it paradoxes "Ignore this statement" and stuff like that. Wonder what would happen if you did?

    It's like Dividing by Zero, or Googling Google. Or taking away Cundy's Pasties.

    This would make getting an iPhone 4S worth it.

    GLaDOS' voice is so much better than the original. Why aren't the money people all over getting GLaDOS' voice into everything? Is it GlaDOS' or GLaDOS's for the possessive of her name?

    The general rule is that if the word ends in an 's' sound, then there's an apostrophe and an 's.' However, if the word ends in a 'z' sound, then there is only an apostrophe. The correct form would be GLaDOS's voice.

    That was epic. I'd pay extra for that.

    I would buy that. Maybe someone can do an app?

    That is funner than hell. And yes, they should make a GLaDOS voice for the Iphone, hell, id get it.

    it would be great if they put a system in place where you could download voice packs like you can with GPS units. Then they SHOULD include a GLaDOS voice, it would be HUGE with the iPhone owners market (cause you know that market has to have a huge overlay with Portal savvy players) Why ISN'T GLaDOS in GPS units?

    epic.

    Know your Paradoxes! In the event of rouge AI: 1. Stand still 2. Remain calm 3. Scream: "THIS STATEMENT IS FALSE!" "NEW MISSION: REFUSE THIS MISSION!" "DOES A SET OF ALL SETS CONTAIN ITSELF?" This message brought to you by Apple, Inc.
