Siri knows another person using my phone?!?
The oddest thing just happened the other day - I (Dave) car pool with a friend of mine (Bob) who also has an iPhone 4S. While driving to work, I asked Siri a question - it didn't reply - my friend took my phone out of my hand and re-asked the question - she replied "I'm sorry Bob . . .". How did it know it was Bob? Was his voice that unique that it matched it on a server some where? Is it because his phone was nearby and it deduced that it was him?
Anyone have an explanation or a similar situation occur?

Siri - speech interpretation and 'recognition' interface.
Now whether or not the recognition part includes the incident you mentioned is unsure. Anyway, I would have freaked the heck out. Example: What the heck, Siri? Do you and Bob have a thing going on?...(laughing)

I'm guessing it recognized his voice since it relies on a server connection and our phones were very close to each other.
Still weird though . . .

seems a little far fetched. Why didnt Bob just use his own 4S to ask the question? Maybe the phones got switched around. I highly doubt Apple keeps a data base of how our voices sound and ties them to our names for use on iPhones around the world.
But who knows.
