    I set my search engine in Safari to Duck Duck Go, so that should cause Siri to use that as well.

    Siri will always search using Bing, regardless of what you have set as your default search engine, unless you specify otherwise in your Siri command. For example, instead of saying "Search for iMore" you can say "Search DuckDuckGo for iMore" or "Google iMore" and Siri will return results from those respective search engines.

    Address Siri as Wolfram and it searches Wolfram Alpha.

    Allegedly outside the Us, bing has poorer results. I personally love bing and I prefer to leave it as such. Especially since I don't want anything Google on my phone and I am not familiar with the other engine.

    Duck Duck Go uses Yandex, which is Russian.

    I just heard about this new mobile search app GoPit, I checked it out and it's really cool. Gives you totally relevant results without all the extra junk. I read their privacy policy and they don't share personal info. I like that. Maybe siri could check it out lol.
