My bathroom scales clearly knew it was my birthday – the display that shows my age and other stats when I step on had advanced by one. Other than that, it had no comment other than to inform me that my body fat percentage had risen by 0.1% since yesterday. Thanks scales, that’s what I was hoping to hear.
Siri was next. I had high hopes for her, as I felt we’d developed something of a connection over the past month or so. She keeps my calendar, sets up meetings, and even jokes with me from time to time. I casually asked her if I had any meetings today. She dryly replied “yes, you have four meetings for today” and presented a list. Clearly this list showed that today was something special, but Siri had no comment. In desperation, I even prompted her a bit. “Anything you want to tell me today, Siri?” Sadly, she replied “Your last meeting was at 7AM this morning.”
I was crushed.
Apparently we still have some work to do…
