I remember a story about how Apple contacted the original male voice actor for Siri used in other markets.

He had given an interview in the press about how the process works and what it was like to have his voice recognized by millions of people, so on and so forth.

Apple contacted him, scolding him saying that he was in violation of his agreement and was not authorized to speak about his relationship with Apple, or on behalf of Apple, or any process or work product involved in Apple software, and that any official media requests in regard to his service with Apple should be forwarded to Apple's PR department to determine appropriateness.

He, not so politely, told Apple to go eat a dick - and reminded them that he had NO official relationship with Apple. Apple acquired the company who invented what we now call Siri and for whom he did the voice tracking for. His relationship was with them, and as they were no longer in existence, as he no longer receives any royalties for his work, he's free of any contractual obligations or NDA. However, for a fee, he would be more than happy to enter into a new relationship with Apple.




“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527
