Apple changes Siri's answer to "What is the best smartphone?"

Apple gives Siri a personality tweak, now believes she is the best smartphone.

Last week I reported on how Apple's Siri claims that the Nokia Lumia 900 is the best smartphone when asked and the hilarity that the Lumia says the iPhone 4S is. I made the prediction that Apple would give Siri a "personality tweak" that would change her mind on what the best smarthphone is...and I was right.

After Apple was accused of not returning information for searches for abortion clinics, Apple made the claim that they are unable to change the data Siri returns. However, they have now been caught in a lie as Siri no longer agrees with what WolframAlpha says regarding "what is the best smartphone?"

 

Siri now says "You're kidding, right?" or "The one you're holding" in response to the question. Clearly this shows that Apple is able to modify what Siri returns and this could lend credence to the claims of moral censorship that had previously been alleged. It also makes me wonder what other searches have been modified to suit Apple's fantasy.
