If you’ve played around with the iphone 4S with it’s Siri system, you know you can ask it a question such as the ‘meaning of life‘ and ‘fastest car in the world‘ and it will talk back and give you the information you require.
It doesn’t necessarily always get everything right, but most of the time it does. But now we are wondering if the Siri system may have gone slightly wrong for one customer of the iphone 4S.
According to The Sun newspaper, a child of 12 who tried out the new iphone 4S in Tesco was shocked when it told him:
“Shut the f*** up, you ugly t***.”
The phone’s Siri system, which answers spoken questions came back with the foul-mouthed insult when Charlie Le Quesne asked “How many people are there in the world?”. Charlie’s horrfied mother mum Kim said ‘The phone was a demo version and was low enough on the shelf for Charlie to have qo with it‘. He asked it simple questions, and they were both shocked with the results.
“I thought I must be hearing things. So we asked again and the same four-letter stuff blared out”
“I asked for the manager and after staff heard it they agreed to unplug it.”
Tesco said: “We have launched an investigation. The handset will be going back to Apple for diagnostic tests.”
