Not sure why Siri Suggestions thinks it is a good idea to suggest calling to wish someone a happy birthday right after the clock rolls over midnight (it only seems to suggest it for immediate family, but still)…

@smokey Happy birthday to your mom — wishing her many more years of birthday felicitations from you!

@smokey it will also suggest you call dead people, if you forget to take them out of your contacts. Now that would be a neat trick: Siri Oujia.

@walter Every time this happens to me it seems like a glaring, universal example of needlessly insensate technology. I keep waiting for Apple to catch it, but they never do. Its persistence is puzzling.

@walter @schuth Ugh, someone needs to hit Apple with a clue stick for that :-( “Needlessly insensate technology” indeed.
