Siri's In Trouble Because It'll Help You Get Laid In China

By Gary Cutlack on at

Apple's virtual assistant has been a little too kind to customers in China, causing a bit of a fuss after it answered questions about where users could find themselves a highly rated local prostitute.

Siri is apparently all too keen to list suspiciously accommodating bars and nightclubs in the surrounding area when asked about the availability of local hookers, which, under the rather strict Chinese regime, may cause Apple a few troubles in the region.

Prostitution is illegal in the country, while Apple usually takes an extremely tough approach to killing anything even vaguely rude that may appear on its App Store. So how come Siri is allowed to run around acting like a pimp and getting away with it? [Tech Sina via The Register]
