iOS6 Giants Bias

Like every Apple nerd around, I stayed up late last night updating all my iDevices with the new iOS6 update released yesterday. This morning, I got around to exploring its new features. Siri on the iPad3!, I thought - finally. After holding down the home button for a couple of seconds, sure enough up pops Siri. But what is that I notice? It's a guide screen meant to help a user navigate the many possibilities of Siri. I looked closer, knowing the most important use I want to get from Siri is the ability to quickly look up sports scores. What did I see? A fucking GIANTS reference as an example! I was mortified.


Clicking into the sports section of the Siri guide yielded further deplorable Giants references.


"Did the Giants win?", "When do the Giants play next?", and "Show me the roster for the Giants" are other examples given. Apple, you're playing with fire here. Don't make me go all Samsung Galaxy III over this!

Good point, Spank. Are you going to throw your Apple II out your window in protest?

Do I still get a DAMMIT if I covered this on Twitter already, or does that make us even for the GT thing?

Nice job hiding your porn apps, btw.

I would consider this a detailed analysis of a topic you recently raised, supported by graphics.

It's easy to miss Tweets on topics unless one just sits around and reads Twitter feeds all day. But no one we know would do that.

Yeah, fuck that guy.

I'll never part with my Apple II.
