I’ve heard horror stories about Apple Maps recently but luckily I haven’t run into any myself because I have a BlackBerry (haha, FAIL). Anyway, you shouldn’t feel so bad about getting lost with the system because even Batman does sometimes.
In this parody trailer for The Dark Knight, Batman tries to navigate his way to his true love Rachel but just can’t seem to find the way because Siri keeps sending him in the wrong direction (bitch). The trailer is making fun of the tough go Apple has been having lately with their mapping system, since distancing from Google. The absolute best part of this trailer is that Batman comes off as a grumpy old, technologically daft guy, which is underscored by the chirpy Apple music in the background. Yup. Apple Maps will do that to the best of us…
Turns out Zooey Deschanel has a little brother named Jooey and he’s just as quirky as our favourite indie songbird. He has the same blunt bangs, wears flannel PJs and has a weird country twang.
He also stars in his very own commercial for Siri on the iPhone 4 S and has a lot of questions. Some include: Is it raining? What year is it? And of course, do you want to take a soup bath?
Zooey Deschanel can pull of the quirkiness a lot more than her pyjama-wearing brother, who premiered his commercial on Funny or Die. He kind of reminds me of 30 Rock’s Kenneth. I’m eagerly awaiting the premiere episode of New Guy.

In the meantime, Siri has been acting kind of b*tchy lately. When asked about Zooey Deschanel she acted like she didn’t even know the chick. Check it out below:
Imagine Google and Apple as people.
Would they get along? Would they be friends?
Well in this video, we can see what could possibly happen.
Sparks fly when G-Male,the imagined Google version of the perfect boyfriend, meets Siri, the imagined Apple version of the perfect girlfriend).
How cute. I guess opposites really do attract.
