  If you can't discern pixels on a normal computer screen you're not looking or don't know what to look for.   And you don't seem to understand how resolution independent graphics work in OS X or you wouldn't be commenting on the text size.   Did you really register just to troll about technology you haven't bothered researching?
So completely sold. Time to update my three year old MacBook Pro, which is starting to really show its age when I work. An upgrade for the 512 GB SSD and a browse over any other tiered features and this baby's on its way to my house. I haven't been able to think of anything I dislike about this new laptop.
In the United States it just offered to search, and I gather in the UK it displayed what this article suggests. So its behavior wasn't quite as the article (old or new) suggested, but a custom response is a new change.No, they didn't. Siri offers a wide range of sarcastic and humorous responses to non-serious questions and this is right along the lines of other questions which can earn similar responses. No need to be so serious.
Ah. That would explain it, then, and in that case this would be legitimate.
Really, AppleInsider? You couldn't be bothered to actually verify this before you posted a news story?   If you ask Siri 'what is the best smartphone ever' (and that's actually pretty hard to do—I can only make it work by pronouncing smartphone, 'smartohn', or basically by dropping the 'ph' but pronouncing it the same otherwise) she goes about looking for local shops. And I doubt this is Apple changing results because if you ask, say, 'what is the best camera ever',...
"Samsung Electronics Australia has nothing to do with..."   I'm suspicious of that (and the specificity of that statement). This seems quite like their recent advertising campaign, but it takes some balls to come out and say you had nothing to do with it when there's a good chance it will be traced back to you if you did. Some kind of entity was behind this. Quite coordinated. Some money changed hands.
Huh... I wonder how this will relate to Cafe Macs, which I was under the impression served largely the same purpose.   Maybe employees can't bring outside guests to this one? Amusing, given Cafe Macs is behind security, and the title suggests this one will be an independent building.   (P.S. This new template is so awkward. It feels incomplete.)
Get with the times! Our irrational disdain is to be directed at Google now.
Been here since 2007 and this surprises you?Greenpeace hounding Apple is nothing new.And unlike Consumer Reports, this is the Greenpeace status quo.
That was my thought, too: that this wouldn't change until AT&T received suitable pressure from the government to make the change. I'm cynical enough to believe there was still some kind of behind-the-scenes pressure behind this. The only other explanation I can imagine is that they somehow calculated that the move would bring in more customers than it would free.
