    Bernd Bep says:

    It really is NOT COOL to constantly make fun and imitate people with an accent, really resent this......

    Rob says:

    Sure it is. It's called humor.

    I thought that Rene's vocal impressions on the pod-cast were fantastic. He should be doing comedy . . . . . . perhaps he is! Great stuff Rene. If the iPhone5 can understand all that dude, I will be impressed.
    In the UK we have very diverse accents, with local linguistic twists and variations to cope with. Many local humans find it utterly baffling, so if designers can code for that, it will be miraculous. If the new phone CAN do this, get Rene to try saying "ALUMINIUM" to it like Jonathan Ive and see if it copes.

    No, the vocal impressions and accents have to go. Maybe once in a podcast is alright, but not for 80% of the podcast. Stick to the news and give reasonable insight, Rene.
