Wait, That Name's Already Taken! Isn't It?

Wait, That Name's Already Taken! Isn't It?

Not having an interest in cell phones, I was surprised the other say when one of my friends posted on FB about wanting a Siri. I didn't say anything, but later responses confirmed that it was a cell phone she was talking about and not this link.

I'm wondering if this has made anyone else do a double-take. Do the cell phone people have any idea there's already a sex toy with that name, or is it an in-joke? Or am I so out-of-the-loop that the cell phone was around first?

Siri is an actual name, so I feel it's like naming shoes "Kate" or something. I don't think only one company can name their shoes or whatever "Kate".

Siri is available only on the iPhone 4S without hacking. There are other similar programs for other phones, though.

Taking a look at the review dates, it looks like the voice technology was around first.

Okay, thanks for clearing that up. As I said, I don't pay much attention to cell phone related stuff.

It's okay. XD It's not a common name in America.

I actually remember seeing the Siri sex toy second and had a laugh about it.

I made that mistake. I, too, am not a close follower of phone tech, so when a friend said she wanted a Siri, I thought she meant the sex toy, and said as much. Didn't help that she's a tad prudish ...

My friend was playing with Siri on his iPhone the other night and I told the whole table that Siri was also a toy.

Oh I loved that! It was so funny!

But yeah, I find it amusing that these two very different things have the same name.
