Excuse Me Siri, Your Code Is Showing [Image]

Excuse Me Siri, Your Code Is Showing [Image]

Ever want to see the robot computer code language Siri actually thinks in before she translates it to English? Well if you’re in the U.S. and ask Siri why she doesn’t speak Danish, German, Portugese, Mandarin, French, Russian, or a number of other languages, then her answer will come back in a goop of unintelligible robot-speak. Well, unintelligible for people who have little understanding of coding.

It looks like there’s something wrong on the server end of Siri and she’s unable to retrieve the proper answer. Rather than answering in English, or offering to do a web search on your question, she orates the code version of the answer. We’ve yet to find any other questions that prompt a similar response from Siri, but this is another simple flaw that Eddie Cue and his team need to fix whenever they get done saving people from Apple Maps.

Have you seen similar code-based answers from Siri for other questions? Let us know in the comments.

Analyst: There’s Little Possibility That The Apple HDTV Will Launch Any Time Soon

Until Apple can get the cable companies to play ball, its TV set will remain a rumor.

While we’re almost certain Apple is working on its own television set, when it will launch is a complete mystery. Initially it seemed the set could make its debut before the end of 2012, and then reports pushed the release date back until 2013.
