  1. An add that drives me crazy when I hear/see it is some of the Microsoft Surface commercials. Not all of them, but some of them end with them having Siri saying "Do you still think I'm pretty?" and it just makes me incredibly offended.

  2. That commercial drives me nuts! Such a horrible stereotype. Women are so concerned with appearance that even female AI voices want to be pretty! Blech!
