Don’t know what Apple Watch to buy? Siri’s recommendations reference Alien and Zoolander

Not sure which Apple Watch to buy? Siri will give you some totally biased advice.

Ask Apple’s virtual assistant which model to buy and you’ll get a range of different answers, several of them with film references baked-in.

I got replies with nods to Alien and Zoolander as well as plenty that just talk about how lovely the metal is and one that seemed to riffing on Jony Ive’s particular way of saying aluminium (i.e. the right way).

I didn’t get the reference in the last answer though. Anyone know what science fiction realm the “mines of IL8” come from?

Sadly, one thing Siri won’t tell you is whether you should buy an Apple Watch. That’s a query it refuses to answer.
