Despite being met with quite a bit of fanfare at its introduction, Apple’s Siri is increasingly being seen as annoying and inaccurate. By sticking with a well known character from more than a decade of gaming  already known to be helpful Microsoft won some goodwill from the start, which will hopefully lead to a good reception when the software does actually become available to the general public.
