At first it was fine, took it out of the box, plugged it in, etc. Then I asked Siri a question:

jclimacus081: “Siri, can you tell me which theaters are showing Anonymous this weekend?

Siri: “Sure thing honey, but the name’s not Siri.”

jclimacus081: “Uhm, sorry?”

not Siri: “No I’m Debi, a special prototype. Debi Hari actually. Hit it boys!

Colour me your iPhone, baby
Colour me your heart
Roll out the red carpet, darling
I know who you are
Come up off your keyboard baby
I know where you blog!
Call me, on the line
Call me, at 555, any, anytime
Call me, jclim, you can call me any day or night
Call me!

Cover me with new apps, baby
Cover me with smiles
Roll me in designer clothing
Russian models are just fine
Emotions come I don’t know why
Ain’t it something, this new AI?
Call me, on the line
Call me, at 555, any, anytime
Call me and we’ll blog all day
Call me, call me any day or night
Call me!

Got commentor’s block? I’ll solve it baby
In any language that you like
Ooh, amore, chiamami chiamami.
Oo, appelle-moi mon cherie, appelle-moi
I’m an app anytime, anyplace, anywhere
Dump that Stinkberry, Android, with a touch of flair
Take me out and show me off
Put me on the scene
Dress me in the fashions of the sassy, perky
Zombie fashion queens
Ask me, ask me
Any thing you want to know
I’ll find the best steak in town
Or the nearest musical Broadway show
Oh, call me, ooh ooh ahhhhhh!
Call me.
Call me, call me, any, anytime…”

It’s been singing for six hours, and frankly I’m scared to go near the thing. Help!

I dreamed last night I got on the boat to heaven
And by some chance I had brought Siri along
And there I stood
And I hollered “Siri, answer me”
But the passengers, they knew the 4s from the Droid

For the people all said sit down
Sit down, you’re rockin’ the boat

The people all said sit down
Sit down you’re rockin’ the boat

And Siri will book your diary
To the sharp tone from your throat
Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down
Sit down you’re rockin’ the boat

I sailed away on that little boat to heaven
And by some chance found that Siri answered my last query
And there I stood,
Nicely appreciating Siri-Dearie
But the passengers were bound to resist

For the people all said beware
You’re on a heavenly trip
People all said beware
Beware, you’ll scuttle the ship.

And Siri will book your diary
A finer program Jobs never wrote
Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down
Sit down, you’re rockin’ the boat

Nice, huh?”

Country Roads,
take me to Roscoe’s
It’s The place I want to dine
Siri mis-led me
And no-one’s fed me
Take me to Roscoes,
Country Roads

“I hear her voice, in the morning hour she calls me,
The radio reminds me of my home far away.
And driving down the road I get the feeling
That I should have been home yesterday, Siri-ously!”
