For a laugh, try telling Siri the above.

For those of us who don't use fruit based technology, what does it do? Finish the Queen song. Or talk about the new communications director?

It finishes the Queen song with minor modifications appropriate to a silicon-based "life form"

Instead of "I'm just a poor boy..." she says "I'm just a personal digital assistant..." (that's from memory and may not be exact wording). Not a big deal, but it amused me.

After listening again, it is a little more amusing. After proclaiming herself to be a poor digital assistant and bemoaning that nobody loves her, she asks, "will you let me go?" And responds to herself, "No, no, no, no, we will not let you go.." and carries on with the complex lyrics of the song about never let her go.

Not side-splitting, but it amused me.

Weird! I tried it just now, and it works fine.
