15 Things You Should Try Telling Siri Right Now

Dec 18, 2015

Apple's Siri is useful for finding quick answers, setting alarms, and scheduling reminders. But did you know she's also quite good at telling jokes?

There are dozens upon dozens of things you can say to Siri to evoke clever wisecracks. Siri's charisma is one characteristic that separates it from Google's computerized virtual assistant, Google Now, which gets straight to the point rather than making wise.

Here are some questions and requests you can say to Siri to see her comical side.

OK Glass.

"Ok Glass" is the term used to wake up Google's augmented reality headset, Google Glass. That phrase would tell the headset to listen for a command.

Are you Her?

A nod to Spike Jonze's film in which a writer (Joaquin Pheonix) falls in love with a lifelike operating system Samantha (voiced by Scarlett Johansson).

Open the pod bay door.

A famous line from the Stanley Kubrick film 2001: A Space Odyssey, in which HAL, an advanced artificial intelligence system, disobeys astronaut Dave. Fun fact: HAL was named after IBM (take each letter from HAL and move them one step down the alphabet).

Hey Cortana.

A command used to activate Microsoft's rival virtual assistant, Cortana, which just launched for the iPhone.
