“I need to hide my roommate”

This one isn’t a joke. Someone actually asked this of Siri after murdering someone. And now it is evidence against him. It makes you wonder how smart some people thing Siri truly is!

Pedro Bravo is accused of kidnapping and strangling his friend, University of Florida student Christian Aguilar, in the city of Gainesville in Florida, in September 2012 after an argument started over Aguilar dating Bravo’s ex-girlfriend Erika Friman.
When asked “I need to hide my roommate”, iPhone’s Siri answered: “What kind of place are you looking for? Swamps. Reservoirs. Metal foundries. Dumps.” reported WXPI Pittsburgh.

  • Just so you know, I don’t do anything when you blink at me
  • Stop trying to strap me to your forehead, it won’t work

Even a radio is possible.
