Today’s featured video is a bit dated but it’s really funny and interesting to watch. It pits Apple’s Siri against an Indian equivalent: Micromax’s Aisha. The result is a comical video on the way these two devices tackle a string of questions posed to them.
Siri is an intelligent personal assistant made for the Apple iOS platform. Users glean information from Apple’s Siri by asking the software their queries; these queries are answered by Siri in a conversational manner. Siri performs many tasks for the user like giving recommendations, searching for information, etc. on a wide variety of topics. With the passage of time, Siri also gets accustomed to the user and provides customized results. Siri is available on the iPhone 4S and the coming iPad 3.
Micromax is an Indian mobile handset manufacturer that tasted success owing to their introduction of dual SIM card phones. In India, many users carried two phones, each phone having a different telecom network. This served as an enterprising opportunity to release the dual SIM phones. Micromax also spearheaded a revolution by providing multifaceted mobile devices at affordable rates; one could get a Micromax smartphone for a fraction of the cost of a Samsung or an Apple smartphone.
After Apple launched the Siri for the iOS platform, there were bound to be some inspirations in the market. One such inspiration comes from the Indian company Micromax. Called the Aisha, Micromax’s very own vocal assistant does more or less the same functions that its Apple rival does. thinkdigit thought of an experiment where they compared Apple’s Siri and Micromax’s Aisha by asking both the devices the same questions. The result is a goofy video where both the softwares are at their wit’s end. Some of the replies given by Apple’s Siri and Micromax’s Aisha are quirky and whimsical. My favourite one being the time when Siri was asked by the user when he would die, to which Apple’s Siri replied, ‘I can Google that for you.’
From the answers given by Apple’s Siri and Micromax’s Aisha, it is evident that Aisha is better suited for the local Indian market; Siri is incapable of responding to India based questions. Aisha also gave correct answers to most of the questions asked to it, proving that Aisha was up-to-the-mark against Siri. This is great news for Indian mobile customers as they can buy almost nine Micromax devices that feature Aisha at the same cost as one iPhone 4S!
