“Okie dokie, artichokie.”

That’s how Siri responded to our CEO’s voice command on his iPhone.

It’s nothing earth-shattering, but it caught us off guard. Just like the millions of other people who played with Siri’s features and found the automated responses to seem a little more than automated — even funny. For instance, BuzzFeed has collected a bunch of examples of Siri’s personality, like this one:

It’s a reminder that showing your personality is always buzzworthy (even for one of the most talked about products on earth).

    Absolutely. Personality is huge! …but so is functionality. There are very few people with Windows phones, but every single one I’ve spoken with says that Cortana is far more useful. Even the people I know who’ve switched back to an iPhone agree that while Siri is good for a fun joke, Cortana let them “get stuff done.” That’s high praise for a brand notoriously blasted by Apple fans for not working well.

    But, yes, Siri’s silliness has created a significant amount of buzz for an already highly buzzed product. Great point.
