Siri having "a wee bit of trouble" in Scotland [NSFW-L]

Likely exactly why Siri is still in beta and not localized for Scotland. Definitely NSFW due to language, but just as definitely safe for a belly laugh. Ach, aye.

Siri having "a wee bit of trouble" in Scotland [NSFW-L]


She has problems for sure. Couple of days ago, I started her up, and before I could ask the weather, she told me "sorry I am unable to help you now". I stated, "weather for my area" she stated "here is your forecast.... You think 30 years from now she will still be in beta? Poor Siri. To be honest, Siri works well for me.

Yeah, even though you can speak to siri conversationally, you still need to speak clearly. It only took a little while to get used to that, and now i am constantly setting reminders, timers, and alarms with it. Once it can interact with third party apps, my thumbs will be just for show.

Actually, as a Scot myself, you will find that the "Siri" voice in the UK (and Scotland) is male. Otherwise, very funny! And us UK residents still can't make full use of Siri - c'mon Apple, get with it!
