Siri Prank

via Stephen Hackett. The Telegraph:

Charlie Le Quesne was trying out the iPhone 4S at a Tesco store in Coventry when it told him: “Shut the f*** up, you ugly t***.”


The Siri system addresses the phone’s user by name – using information entered in its contact system.

Some smart aleck told Siri "shut the f*** up you ugly t***" was his name. You wanna hear something more funny? Tesco:

We have launched an investigation. The handset will be going back to Apple for diagnostic tests.

Can’t make this stuff up.
