Siri: The Horror Movie

One year ago last week I blogged about my budding love affair with my new iPhone 4S and Siri, its "intelligent agent." I recognize within myself a tendency to be very optimistic about new technology and how much good it can do us.

This tendency, I admit, sometimes inures me to the darker side of what is really a morally neutral technological advance.

So, what is the darker side of the iPhone ... and of Siri herself? Could she potentially become a HAL9000 and murder us all in our sleep?

This clever video by Rooster Teeth Shorts (no relation) poses one terrifying answer to that very hypothetical question.
