    iPhone Siri software tells boy, 12, to 'shut up' in Tesco

    Last Updated: 3:32PM GMT 30/12/2011
    A 12-year-old boy was subjected to an obscene tirade by a new iPhone when he tested out its new voice technology in a supermarket, according to reports.

    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 boy had been using the phone's Siri system – which answers spoken questions – and had asked it: "How many people are there in the world?"

    His mother Kim, 39, a nursery worker, told The Sun: "The phone was a demo version and was low enough on the shelf for Charlie to have a go with it. He asked it a simple question and we couldn't believe the filth it came out with.

    Siri now calls me by a nickname... here's a hint

    "I want you to go in that bag, and find my wallet."

    True that, noaim. My kids leaned them as soon as they started riding the school bus, and if they do say those words, they know better than to let myself or my husband hear them.

    I found this article overblown and stupid. Some kids pulled a prank, not the end of the world. The kid heard some language that he will surely hear again.

    What I found funny about the article toward the end was that they "sent the phone back to Apple for diagnostics"

    lol. All you have to do is ask Siri to call you something else. Simple fix.
