Dropping Science: Sh!t That Siri Says

As you probably noticed from the queues outside Apple shops this week, the iPhone 4S launched a few days ago and with it came Apple’s voice controlled personal assistant, Siri. The idea behind Siri is that you can ask your iPhone any question you want and your digital PA will present you with the answer. Apple’s been working hard to impress on everyone just how good to voice recognition on the app is however what they’ve neglected to mention is that Siri also appears to have a hell of a sense of humour.

As is the way of the internet, there’s already a blog devoted to Sh!t That Siri Says and so this week we’re devoting Dropping Science to a selection of the best examples. Enjoy!

Pretentious Instagram Photos Get A Facelift

Morning dudes,

Anyone who follows Steve or I on twitter will know that we (well I mostly) are totally devoted to Instagram. If you’ve not come across it before, Instagram is basically twitter for photographs: you snap stuff, stick a filter on it and post it for your followers to see. The site has exploded since launching seven months ago and now boasts 4.25 million users. It has however become somewhat infamous for the number of over filtered (dare I say ‘pretentious’) shots that crop up on there. Well, as is the way with such things, it was only a matter of time before the internet decided to take action. Starting on tumblr  a trend has emerged in the last few months of taking said photos and amending them slightly with the aid of a bit of red text. Enjoy:

I’ll never filter with a clear conscience again,
