Oy, Siri! Throw some shrimp on the barby!

While Siri’s initial launch included English, German, and French (although in limited capacity outside the US), it seems that not all Anglophones have been treated equal. Today’s release of iOS 5.0.1 marked some pretty standard updates: bug fixes, multi-task improvements, iCloud fixes for documents… oh, and now Siri can finally understand Australians!

It seems that our outback brethren have been struggling with their Siri use – Apple had to drop an update to improve Siri’s ability to understand such phrases as: “Oy! Throw some shrimp on the barby.”

Well, Aussies, today all of your troubles are over, for Siri can serve you as secretary, despite your crazy accent.
