The folks at Cupertino were not amused when Siri thinks that the Lumia 900 is the best smart phone/cell phone ever. The so called embarrassment was due to the fact that Siri uses Wolfram Alpha engine to answer various inquiries.
As a “solution”, Siri has been updated to ignore such questions by responding differently with answers such as “the one you’re holding” and “you’re kidding, right?”. Is Apple’s action is a little too much for the sake of saving face? Luckily Apple isn’t venturing into many industries under the sun or we would be getting biased answers from Siri.
