Apple have made a few adjustments to Siri after it was discovered she was suggesting locations of bridges to people who wanted to end it all. Whoopsie. The glitch was discovered when a blogger asked Suri whether he should jump off a bridge and she proceeded to give him a list of nearby bridges. Luckily it was discovered in time.

Oh my, seems Apple’s marketing department have been Samsunged ….
How far would you go to get an iPad and iPhone? Well, a kid in China sold his kidney…beat that! The 17 year old, only known as Wang, did the deal from an online chatroom. Unfortunately there’s no app to stop renal failure. The people involved, including a surgeon, got paid $35,000 while the kidneyless kid got a mere $3,500 for his troubles. His mother suspected something was up when Wang rocked up with the Apple products and was turning friggin yellow! Hmm, should have got a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, then mom wouldn’t have suspected a thing.
How badly do you want a iPad 2? No seriously, what would you give to have one? Well, a 17 year old boy in China sold his kidney for one. Yes indeedy. He searched the internet, found a buyer, traveled north to a hospital in Chenzhou had it removed and viola $3,400 in his hot little hand. His mom (mum) became suspicious when her son rocked up home with an iPad 2 , an iPhone and a big friggin scar. When he fessed up she dragged him back to Chenzhou and straight to a police station to report it. Sheez, wouldn’t you know it the contact numbers for the kidney agents were now disconnected. The hospital admitted to police that they sometimes rent out the urology department but had no idea they were removing kidneys. Hate to think what he is going to sell for the next model!
Psst OK, apart from the fact the kid’s only got one kidney left , imagine all the apps he can purchase with the left over money?
What the hell was on the iPhone app that scared the living beejesus out of the Chameleon?
Seems Apple are not the nice people we have come to know and love. Alasdair Allan and Pete Warden have uncovered a dastardly plot by Apple to have your every move monitored and recorded. Inside every iPhone and iPad is a tracking device which is synced and stored in iTunes. This device keeps a record of every location you have ever been to when carrying your phone or iPad. Hmm, handy for the FBI. For those who bothered to read the 15,000 word iTunes agreement it is all there in black and white ….”Apple and our partners and licensees may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your Apple computer or device. This location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by Apple and our partners and licensees to provide and improve location-based products and services. For example, we may share geographic location with application providers when you opt in to their location services.”
Holy crap, Armageddon was in our pocket all the time!
