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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
