    Has it already been mentioned that Siri's new animation is damn near identical to the animation that plays during the installation and setup of Windows 7?

    In the last two weeks I setup three new MacBooks with VMs of XP and Windows 7 Pro.
    At one point it's a solid black screen with some words in the middle reporting the status but at the bottom there's the new Siri animation.
    I'll have to do an other one and take a screenshot.

    Here's one I found with Google.

    The pic shows just a simple blob but when you see it in action it so looks like Siri.

    This should be the early version of Windows 7, right? Early beta Windows 7.

    I'm sure it wasn't Apple's plan to make Siri like the INSTALLATION of Windows 7 :rolleyes:

    Klaatu barada nikto.

    No doubt someone is now going to inform me I've got the spelling wrong on that, but, I'm sure you all got it, right?

    Not sure this would really stand up to many many other challengers.

    Oh god, please, no.... Apple would never do this to us.
    Anyone in this world, spare us from a Windows installation GUI (Windows 10 included, because it is SCARY). :confused::(:confused::(

    Lol have you seen ipadpro's threads ? They are 100x more hilarious than this one (which I don't find hilarious at all but anyway).

    I have to agree with others, other than it being some iluminations and being at the bottom of the page, I see very little similiarity.

    It is similar in the sense that they are both curves.

    Feel free to add this to your OP, @Gjwilly:

    iOS9-Siri-vs-Win7-Install.gif

    They both contain witch of Agnesi curves—Siri more-so than the Win7 installer—and shift through multiple hues of light. Visually, the Win7 installer seems to be light changing colors as it shines through a crack while Siri is a collection of multicolored waves reacting to sound.

    It's not a similarity I would've immediately recognized, but it's there.

    I'd have to disagree with the characterization "damn near identical."

    Otherwise Knight Rider artwork beat them both to the punch.

    When you think about it for a minute, it really makes a lot of sense that Apple would steal Microsoft's Windows 7 shimmering line installation animation for Siri.
