It seems that Siri is not all-knowing…

Sales of the iPhone 4S are breaking records, thanks in no small part to Siri, built-in voice recognition technology that “answers” just about any question you can come up with. The Weekly asked readers on Facebook about some of their own queries. (“I told Siri I loved her, she said, ‘You better not be saying this to all devices out there.’” “I asked Siri about boobs! Didn’t understand the question.”) It made us want to ask Siri some questions of our own:

We’re big Game of Thrones fans. Who is Jon Snow’s mother? “How about a web search for ‘Who is Jon Snow’s mother?’”

Do you know Hal? “I’m sorry, I’m afraid I can’t answer that.”

Have you ever been in a Turkish prison? “This Turkish restaurant isn’t far from you.”

Open the pod bay doors. “Oh, not again.”
