Siri & Furby: A Love Story

Aww, it looks like we have an exciting little bit of news from the technology world today! After months of rumors and gossip, Furby and the iPhone’s Siri have come out to the world about their burgeoning love affair. It’s said that the two met when seated together at a fancy party — each a fan of the other’s work — and have been inseparable ever since. From The Tecnow00d Replort3r:

Although Furby has been known to keep its romantic life to itself, the couple aren’t shy about their new love — holding hands whenever they’re out and about, gross kissing each other IRL, talking at each other nonstop all the time. When reached for a comment, Siri said — “We’re in love. Why can’t you just leave us alone?” Tough words from a flash in the pan piece of technology that, you know — What even is it? If you’re in the car and you say, “Remind me to get milk when I leave the car,” how does it know when you leave the car? Is that a real thing that it can do or is that bologna? I don’t believe that it can do that. And I don’t think that it’s a big deal or anything that anyone needs. It seems like just a flimsy combination of other technologies that already existed repackaged as something new and exciting. Furby, on the other hand, at least brought something new to the table. Something sweet, comforting, and adorable that everyone can enjoy, regardless of age. Furby is too good for Siri. Siri is a piece if shi–

Whooaaa! Haha. Whoa there, Technow00d Replort3r. I know we’re living in an age where editorializing in reporting is becoming more and more acceptable and even desired, but SHEESH! Sorry about that, guys. Does the Technow00d Replort3r even have editors anymore? Hahah, whoooooey. Anyway, let’s see the happy couple in action:

Just adorable. I wish them a long, healthy, and happy life together. Invite me to the wedding! Haha. Just kidding. You don’t have to invite me. But if you invited me I would come! Just FYI! Wouldn’t turn it down. But, haha, ok, that’s enough with the jokes — Sorry, Furby and Siri. I love you guys. (See you at the wedding!) (Please seat me with a robot!) (Via TheDailyWhat.)
