The Reason Behind iPhone Fear

Posted By on Tue, Feb 7, 2012 at 11:55 AM

When I bought my iPhone a few months ago, the salesman gave me a bit of a funny look when I chose the iPhone 4 over the slightly more-advanced iPhone 4S. It was an understandable question, especially considering that crowds of tech-conscious fans routinely camp out for days to get their hands on the newest upgrades.

Was I just being cheap? Well, partially, but the larger influencing factor was that Siri scares me a bit. I had only just accepted the need to retire my flip phone, so the thought of my phone actually being able to talk back to me was a little too much. And for all I know, talking was just the start—what else could this fancy phone do? Especially when I wasn't looking ... or in the dark of the night ...

Paranoid? Maybe, but I'm apparently not the only one. Check out the film by Andrew and Nathan McMurry to understand the real risks of Siri. Whatever you do, stay calm—Siri can smell fear.
