Why Apple's Siri & IBM's Watson could not hookup ;-)

Dear Buzz Gang and Crew,
Okay....this is a comical post but there are some intellectual points as well. So here we go:

Why Apple's Siri & IBM's Watson could not hookup?

1. Siri is a kind girl with personality. She has career goals with a specific purpose in mind. She is constantly improving herself by learning from her interaction with others.

Watson is an pure academic with a logical sense of personality. He is great when it comes to pure research but Watson could not charm a girl at all.

2. Siri is a giving person and she is willing to work for charitable goals....aka the 8 plus million iPhone 4s users and counting. She will help you at a moments notice regardless of the day or time.

Watson is all about the mighty dollar which is why you have to pay him to do research for you. I am not saying that this is a bad thing but Watson wants to make money with his new found talents..pure and simple.

3. Siri will not insult you or question your motives. If there is something that Siri does not understand, she will tell you. She can admit her shortcomings. She is honest.

Watson will not correct you but then again if he is wrong, he will not admit it. Watson does not want to admit failure so when he gets something wrong, he stays quiet about it. Watson is a political and corporate wolf.

I am sure that there are other comparisons that could be made but these were the ones that stood out for me. This why I say that Siri and Watson just could not hookup.

Later people. Happy
