Here's what happens when you ask Siri to sort your life out

Where would we be without Siri, Apple's chirpy personal assistant who lives in your phone and beatboxes on demand (seriously, try it if you haven't already)?

In truth, we'd probably be no worse off. Chatting to your mobile phone screen when you're anywhere other than your own home is still some way off being deemed socially acceptable. And if you have a strange accent he/she's pretty much worthless to you.


But we wanted to see just how good a life coach your little robotic pal can be when called upon in times of need. Can Siri sort your sh*t out for you?

We decided to aim all of our queries and complaints in the direction of an iPhone microphone, and this is what happened.

 Siri unfortunately isn't much accustomed to your LinkedIn account..
