Every single Big Sur update now regardless of how minuscule (and we know how many of those there have been) after the update has completed and the Mac has restarted (so basically ~30 min and ~3GB later), Apple thinks they need to again nag me about stupid Siri and with that plug hold up the entire login and app restart process. How many times do I need to tell you guys to **** off with that junk and leave me alone? Don’t you think if I wanted Siri I would have agreed that last three dozen times you peddled her to me? Do you think I suffer from some kind of reading comprehension issue? God, when did Apple become a company that put marketing in their existing customers’ faces ahead of said customers’ user experience? If you want people to install Siri, just make her better. It’s not like the world just hasn’t heard about her yet. So stop acting like the new found lovechild of Google and Facebook for Pete’s sake.
Hmm. OK. … Now that I got that rant out of the way can anybody point me to some kind of option to permanently say no to Siri on Mac? These updates are frequent and lengthy as is. I just want my Mac to restart and re-open all my apps by the time I come back to it. No nagging, no baloney. Is there some kind of secret handshake here perhaps? Or can I somehow tear Siri’s guts out of my macOS installation to get the peddling to go away?
