What Happens When You Say "OK, Glass" to Siri

Siri has always had a sense of humor, albeit a relatively anodyne one. (Q: "Talk dirty to me, Siri." A: "Humus. Compost. Pumice. Silt. Gravel.") But it turns out Apple's personal assistant can get a little testy when you call her (or him) by another personal assistant's name. Here's how Siri responded to the command, "OK, Glass," when I tried it over and over:

Very funny, Siri, and I do mean funny "ha-ha." But do I detect a faint edge of jealousy in your tone?
