“The Siri Backlash is here”
Last week’s abortion “glitch” was the latest in a series of embarrassments for Apple’s bot. Apple apologized(-ish) for the issue, but the half-hearted statement and unchanged software has yet to quell the anger. The criticisms still continue via petitions , including one at SignOn.org that got over 30,000 signatures in 48 hours, petition author Nita Chaudhary told CBS News. Unfortunately, the abortion-query problem is just a micro representation of a macro problem: Siri just doesn’t work that well.
