Siri swears at 10-year-old boy in Tesco

CNETAnalysis: Apple’s Siri voice assistant app is in hot water after reportedly verbally abusing a child who was playing with a demonstration iPhone 4S handset. Ten year-old Charlie Le Quesne was testing the device at a Tesco store in Coventry when his mother claims he asked Siri how many people there were in the world. The normally perfectly-mannered app said in response: “I’m not sure what you said there, Shut The F**k Up, You Ugly T***” Going rogue? However, it’s unlikely that Siri has suddenly decide to go rogue on inquisitive children.

In Depth: Year in tech: the highs and lows of 2011

CNETAnalysis: Year in tech: the highs and lows of 2011 It was clear back in January that 2011 was going to be the year of the tablet. Indeed, if 2011 had a shape it was definitely rectangular with rounded corners, but of course there was much more to 2011′s tech than that. In 2011 we saw some extraordinary things, said hello to some extraordinary kit and waved goodbye to an extraordinary man. Where’s Windows? Microsoft didn’t unveil Windows 8 as rumoured in January , but it spent most of the year bigging up its forthcoming operating system. A developer preview was made available in September , and by the end of the year we knew pretty much everything about Windows 8 on tablets and Windows 8 in general .
