New video! iPhone 4S dialect and accent test

Word on the web is Siri and strong accents or dialects don't mix. We put that theory to the test...

The popularity of the iPhone 4S is undeniable, but it hasn’t gone unnoticed that Siri is having a spot of translation trouble when it comes to heavy accents. So, we thought we’d conduct our very own Stuff.tv investigation by pitting it/her/him against an assortment of different accents and dialects, in order to find out just how lost in translation some accents really are. Guaranteed to make you chuckle, Siri throws up some pretty interesting results, so grab the popcorn and enjoy the show
