Gigglebit: Robin Williams’ Siri impression

13 Aug 2014

Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note.

Like any sector, technology has a serious side, and it is often issues within this serious side that make headlines or that organisations need to explore for their business. Malware! Data breaches! Cloud storage! Do I really need this software? Which candidate has the best IT skills for this job? And what the heck is fog computing?

With Gigglebit, we turn the spotlight on humorous and/or amazing content about science and tech, because sometimes the lighter side should be taken seriously, too.

With the news of the passing of legendary comedian Robin Williams, it seems only fitting to look back on his career and particularly one interview on the Ellen DeGeneres Show where he talks about his experience with Apple’s Siri voice-recognition software in France.
