Siri apparently has a political view – and it’s not socialist

This is a tweet from last week that I couldn’t let go unnoticed by non-French speakers.

Pierre-Olivier Carles discovered the Siri isn’t capable of responding to the question “what is a socialist?”

Guess that means Siri won’t be voting for François Hollande, the French socialist candidate, in the 2012 French Presidential elections…

Now for the real question: are glitches like this potentially dangerous and influential?
