Matt Lauer JOKES Mario Armstrong LIVE on the TODAY Show

I made a huge mistake this morning on the TODAY show and I said that Siri is on the New iPad. Unfortunately, it isn’t—the feature I was thinking of is the new voice dictation software that allows you to talk to your iPad and have it enter any text you speak. I was also thinking about how Apples iOS 5.1 version adds Japanese language support and that’s why I said “Konichiwa” :-)

Unfortunately, Matt Lauer and the crew has a strict one-strike-and-you’re-out policy, and Matt jokingly “fired” me from the TODAY show! Check out the clip below. UPDATE: Mario fights back!!! Not ready to give up his job quite yet, Mario is taking to Twitter and fighting back! Check out the latest updates on the TODAY show blog, allDAY.
