Siri …Perfect for Everyone…Unless You’re Scottish

Siri has been noted as one of the best things to ease the use of daily task keeping, and has rave reviews from tech writers everywhere. She even gives iPhone users a little sass, thanks to humorous Apple developers. USA Today has a fun video showing responses to different prompts, including, “will you marry me,” to which Siri replies, “My End User Licensing Agreement does not cover marriage. My apologies.” She even answers age old questions like “what is the meaning of life” and “how much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood.”

As pioneering and revered as Siri has become she has one small drawback for some users. She can’t understand a Scottish accent. Watch this video of a very patient Scotsman who finds the humor in what appears to be one of Siri’s only shortcomings.
