Siri chats with John Malkovich in new Apple adverts

Apple has revealed two new adverts for the iPhone 4S's Siri feature

Two new Apple adverts for the iPhone 4S have emerged, this time featuring Actor John Malkovich interacting with Siri.

The adverts appeared on Apple's official YouTube channel on Wednesday, and follow in the footsteps of two previous adverts for the iPhone 4S's voice assistant featuring Zooey Deschanel and Samuel L Jackson.

"Joke," the first of the two new adverts, shows Malkovich speaking to Siri using just one word at a time. "Weather," "evening," "linguica," says Malkovich, listening to Siri's replies. Finally he says, "joke," to which Siri replies, "Two iPhones walk into a bar. I forget the rest."

Malkovich chuckles to himself. "That's funny," he tells Siri, to which she replies, "Was it something I said?"

In the second advert, 'Life', Malkovich's one word request to Siri is "Life".

Siri replies: "Try and be nice to people, avoid eating fat, read a good book every now and then, get some walking in, and try to live together in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations."

Malkovich says to himself: "That's pretty spectacular advice, actually". He then tells Siri: "Thank you, I enjoyed this chat immensely, you are very eloquent."

Siri replies: "That's very nice of you to say."

Apple's Siri has been involved in false advertising lawsuits this year, with iPhone 4S owners claiming that the voice-activated assistant doesn't work as advertised. Apple has reiterated that the service is still in beta, and will continue to be improved over time.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
